This is the same for me, when I came back to freestyle snowboarding a few years back I took the proper slow and steady approch and learned bs 1's then 3's and pretty much focused on those for so long that fs became alien. Now I've been pushing to catch up so I do about 60-70% fs and then just mainatin bs. If theres 2 jumps in a row I'll pretty much always hit one bs and the 2nd fs.

Jed Backside for me, but my frontside is almost the same for spins under 7s. For most people it's just whichever spin they got comfortable with first that becomes their 'natural' spin direction.

You can always make it more even if you force yourself to practice your less comfortable direction, but from what I've seen very few people ever work on their other direction enough to make it feel as natural as their first spin direction (although they really should).

CassMT whichever direction you prefer, don't neglect the other one, that's were the challenge lies

the jump, or lip, usually suggest which direction to spin for me (no park)

I find that popping into it almost like I'm jumping backwards as I start my rotation gets me into a flat level spin and lets me land balanced on both feet. Does that make sense? I'm worried about saying "lean into it" because you could catch edge, but right as you pop think about jumping to a flat body position. Grabbing mute helps too.

I'm the same way. Love the floaty BS 180s and front 3's.

Spinning frontside is way easier for me, so I think its just a thing of preference. I can almost spin 720 frontside but still have trouble with my backside 3's. That initial blind spin going BS freaks me out.

Which is weird because on natural features I like to spin frontside and hardly ever spin backside.
The weird thing for me is I used to prefer fs when I was younger and bs freaked me out, now I'm the opposite after coming back haha. I think the main thing for fs for me is I have to go faster then I would for bs or straight airs and that always makes me think I'm gonna overshoot.

Rasse Frontside off-toes depends on how much I try to spin, Bs 5 is way easier than a Fs 5 for me but a 360 is easier frontside than backside I like to do basic Fs spins off-toes because you get a bit more challenge and a bigger pop.

Mystery2many BS for me too. I just feel more control and power off my toe edge. Only FS I like to do is 180s usually involving some sort of press or butter to make it a little more stylish.
