shredjesse Frontside or backside would be helpful.

Frontside the tendancy for beginners to look over your shoulder instead of under your armpit will cork you pretty heavily right off the bat.

Backside not popping enough and pre-spinning will back seat you. Also looking down at your tail or the ground as you take off will do this as well. You can use this for backside 5 corked spins a bit.

Jed Do you have video? Honestly trying to analyse spin without video is a huge guessing game since it's such a complicated technique with many pieces that can throw it off.

(also - weirdly enough this is the same question that another guy just asked, except he was doing bs spins instead of front 3s, so you'd probably benefit from reading that thread as well: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/tip...ile-doing.html)

yeah apparently i drift 5-10 feet off the lip of the jump. ill try to keep that to a minimum

conspiracy Yes I do a setup carve into the jump. I think I wind up too hard. So next time im out i will try to use my core to get my spin more in the air instead of a big pre wind because i actually kind of felt like if i spun faster in the air and went 5 i would have landed.

readimag A good way to practice getting this down is off the side hit of a jump or just pop off the roller after the jump so you get the feel of it. That way if you bail or land wrong you don’t have to worry about crushing yourself. You need to go back to the small jumps and get this down before you even hit the 15’ jump again.

tonicusa Are you adding a little tuck or windup with your leading shoulder when you go for the three? A little wind up helps. Also are you spotting your landing by looking back at the booter or down at the transition you're landing on. Don't forget to use your feet and ankles to help snap you into the spin. Sometimes too much upper body rotary on small spins can throw you off balance. And using more of your feet and ankles will help you from setting too hard an edge as you carve up the kicker. Practice some crisp, flat-ground ones with little upper body rotary and a good knee bend and even pop. Do these at a good speed for a run and then come back and hit the kicker.

zk0ot Yes and no. You'll need to wind up harder for the 3. Front 3s are landed with a bit of "feel" and "intuition". Meaning the final 180 is a blind. Your not Nessesarily going to be looking down at your landing coming down from front 3s

readimag yes your body will follow your head just make sure you do a slight carve into the jump.

Try this. Straight air it. Front 180. Front 360. Right after each other.
Haha i did a nollie as a desperation thing just kinda did it on impulse. i land front 1s fine every time. if i go front one and then in air look over my shoulder will it get me around the last 180?
