crankymule24 hey guys..I took all your advice to the mountain with me today and it definitely helped a great deal. I was able to land a bunch of threes. Granted I was goin small, with not much air, so they seemed pretty hucked, but now that I know I can do the rotation I can slowly go bigger and bigger and smooth em out. Thanks homies.

mijinkal go bigger!!
The bigger you go, the more time you have to spin and learn on. You're wasting your time trying to learn to spin off small jumps.
Powder landings help a lot too.

bamorgan7 I have trouble doing 3's with a grab it seems i can't get the board up close enough. I can do FS and BS 3's without grabing but I want to throw a grab in there now.

Extremo If you can't do back 180s then you def shouldnt be trying back 3's. Once you get the back 180 the back 360 almost will do itself.

alecdude88 since the jumps at my local hills are pretty much spine transfer for me it helps if I throw my spins a little bit forward. This would make the landing a bit easier because I'm level in the air.

crankymule24 Thanks again for all the advice. Unfortunately, mother nature is an old whore and she decided to make it 54 degrees and rainy today. I'll have to wait 'till tomorrow to put all this together on the mountain.

slyder pop off evenly it will keep your axis straight not having your body leaning back or off to the side then the motion is enhanced in the air and you are slamming down

For 3's I always leave the lip both feet at the same time. For backside I leave off my toe edge, frontside leave off the heel edge.

wow i never thought of reaching vs bringing the board to you, but it makes perfect sense. I'm definitely a reacher and it for sure screws me up.
