ohsleeper spinning for me is all about the approach my fs approach is the same for any spin, as is my bs. have it down so you dont have to think about it. only think about how fast, how much, how flat you need or want to spin and where and when you are going to spot your landing.

also you may find it easier to try a bigger jump

gprider_capita I've been having the same problem! 4 weeks ago i landed a 360 properly after many failed attempts and i started getting good enough that i could 3 every jump on the hill, even the 60 footer. but in the past 2 weeks i fall or land on my back heel to much everytime and its starting to piss me off.

SAddiction Yep, get out of your head or if you're going to stay in it, try visualizing your tricks before doing them. Sit at the drop in point and see yourself doing the trick, feel the body motions, here what it sounds like, even smell the snow around you (it all helps).

Sincraft well, i'm new to riding so, take what I say with a grain of salt but.

Everyday I go out, I think I'm going to immediately pickup with where I left off. And every time I go out, I'm surprised that I have to get a good hour in before I get back to where I was...

I'm usually surprised at how much effort I have to put into riding vs what I have impressions of in my head. Once I get that though I'm good.

HOWEVER - more than a few times, I wrecked pretty hard and kept favoring a very safe turn that I do when I'm going faster than my comfort zone, which is reduced from having a wreck. So my execution is sloppy, and my efforts are weak - yet I'm working hard to stay up and moving ahead.

Best way I've found to get over this is to think of a very basic stuff again without just trying to do it. Weight distribution, angle of attack, etc etc.

Maybe you are just favoring your weight a certain way because you remember it being easier than it was, or, maybe even getting overly confident and lazy with the landings.

Then of course, like the other poster wrote , maybe switch to trying something else then go back to that, you might be over thinking

PanHandler work on a different trick. Sounds to me like youre over thinking it, and if you just learn a different trick for a couple days, then one time just start riding down the park and go "k im gonna throw a 3 on this jump." dont think about it and just do it. If youve landed it before then you know how to do it.

Dry spell

Okay, this season I've been starting to land 360's. I even one day landed four in a row off a 15 footer. I was so pumped. Now all of a sudden I keep F**king up, like I don't even know how to do one. Has this happened to anybody else?!? I haven't landed a three in over a week!
