Either bs or fs is fine. Whichever way you're more comfortable learning 360s, go with that.

Once you get your 360s mastered in one direction you can go back and learn the other directions, but for now just focus on the one that feels the most comfortable to you.

Casual Go with what you've been working on, it should feel natural, on your way to the lifts start workin on the FS rotation on the snow so you start to feel that too.

Once you can do that every time then you're ready to take it on a jump, but getting that carving technique down on a flat green run first is very important to smooth 360 rotation.

I think it is easier to do FS from your heel edge, and BS from your toe. Although you can 1 and 3 from either edge, as you do larger spins you will want to follow the above advice.

It is so hard to explain this to people. Some people just refuse to understand that is how the rail tricks are classified.

aiidoneus Great advice here. My biggest issue was not sucking up my knees when doing spins. I dunno why it took me so long to realize it. Straight airs I did it well every time. Then again at first, straight airs and grabs were much easier and that naturally brings up your knees.

Anyway good luck! If your hill has lots of side hits they are a great second step to flats practice.

tokyo_dom Fair enough. To me i still see it as putting my frontside forwards, but have to ignore that instinct and think the reverse

Looking forward to cleaning up my 3s this weekend. I am like the OP i think in that my backside 180s are much more 'forced' and i doubt i could pull off a 360 that direction

If thats the case then why is a FS boardslide the one where we face our backside down the mountain (i.e. 90 degree clockwise turn into the boardslide). Completely threw me off guard when looking at youtube videos...
