|whistlerboarder||It sound like you need to keep your core stiff and bring your legs with you. When your spinning off the lip next time, keep you core stiff and think of bringing the tail of your board around. I just made a video on how to spin 360's.

Backside 360 (goofy riders), Snowboard trick tip - YouTube
this is for goofy but they have a regular version too as well as frontside.
I found this very very helpful.

have you ever thought to video tape your 360s to better analyze and give others the chance to analyze your movements. Seeing yourself in action could be all you need and if you still can't pinpoint it. I'm sure several members here would nail it.

Idk how else to explain it.

|Donutz||It really just sounds like you're not getting enough total-body rotation before you leave the snow. Once you launch, the rotation you have is all you've got. You can screw around with rotating upper and lower body in different directions, but you can't really increase your rate of spin overall. You have to get your rotation going on launch. As snowolf says, have upper body pre-wound in the opposite direction, then just before you launch you whip your upper body around in the direction you want to go. Since the board is still on the snow providing a foundation, your lower body won't counter-rotate; instead you'll give yourself a net rotation. Once you launch, you'll just continue to rotate.|

|vwbrian||What is "scissoring of the legs"?|

Sure Cr0 has his own opinion but to me it sounds like:
1, are you are setting up too early and 2, not snapping off the lip so that your knees/board can follow your upper body smoothly.
When you set up, your upper body should still be winding in the direction you are going to spin as you pop off the lip. The pause you describe is what makes it hard to get your lower body to fluidly follow your shoulders/head/arms. The more tension you can create (by increasing the angle between lower and upper body as you pop), the faster you can spin but you should never pause the wind up motion. That is why the timing is so important. It has to occur early enough to get a lot of tension built but not so soon you pause your motion.
Secondly, if you don't pop off the lip and help put your board in motion, it will be hard to snap your board and knees around to follow your upper body. Some people suggest carving off the lip so you can come off your toes or heels. I prefer to always pop off my toes.
