slyder It's hard to see the lip of the jump in those conditions. But if you look at 7 seconds, your board is parallel to the lip of the jump before you even leave the jump. You are starting your spin way to early.
Also look at 9 second, your right arm completely stops rotating. Hence slowing down your full rotation.
You may want to try and "pre-load" your arms to help swing them around, it seems like you have NO rotation of the arms, just your waist

But coming along, way better than I can do

Phenom Your 270 looked good.

edit: before I get called an asshole; just busting your chops since all the advice has been given already.

My observation is that on the landing you are breaking at the waist and not bending your knees to absorb the landing. Arms kinda seem like they are flailing excessively during landing as well.
good observation! i am working on that. i think i'm too off balance when i land causing my upper body to lean forward instead of absorbing the landing straight up and down with my knees.

that was my pop off the lip. i compress and then when i get to the lip i pop up straightening my legs and then sucking them back up for the rotation. do you think i'm popping off too early?

SAddiction Looking good Ryan! As Extremo and Wolf said, tone down the carve a bit and use spotting the landings to slow down the spin.

ryannorthcott went out again today to a different mountain and tried some 3s in the park there. i was feeling it today and really trying to minimize my carves in. this was actually not one of my greatest ones but the camera man wasn't too adept at filmography...

YouTube - FS 360 day 2

my landing was a bit awkward. i had a couple that i stomped on the toe edge and rode away completely straight.

slyder If you look at the tape at about 9 second mark. You are at the transition and you are already turned 45 degrees approx. I think you need to start your set-up turn a little later so you are farther up the lip and shooting off straight. I think this will also give you the spin and smooth landing without over rotating.

NICE blind landing too

Extremo Yeah I would say waaaay too much of a carve and not enough distance on the spin, but you do have good style because you're not jerking the 3 around and you're keeping it one fluid motion. I'd suggest making your entry a little more straight by doing some front 180s and try to get further down the landing by coming in with more speed. Then use that same speed when throwing a 360...and instead of looking between your feet for the landing, which is forcing your head to come around too early, look at the knuckle, back up hill while you land, this will stop you from reverting. Once you land and start down the hill then turn your head in the direction you are going.
