Default WTF is wrong with my BS 360

I've been working on doing them over small rollers and baby jumps, but now I'm trying to take them to 10ft. WHen I do them on little rollers, I notice that every time the spin comes around, my weight is way back on my back right heel. So when I try them on a 10ft, I get good pop, then pull it around, but I land sitting way back on my back heel and wash out right away onto my back. The spin usually comes around all the way, sometimes slightly short.

I try to make sure I keep my shoulders square on take off so that the spin is even but for some reason my balance is way off.

Any advice on this one? I can spin frontside all day off 30' or more, up to 720. So I get the feel for spinning, spotting a landing, etc just fine. it's just something about spinning backside that I can't level out.

I'll post up vid if i can figure this crap out in the next few weeks.

I just love constructive little kids. People come here for advice and idiots just can't hold their tongue. I don't know why your daddy didn't teach it to you, but mine taught me respect. Learn some, it'll take you farther in life.

try this.. keep your hands right down around your knees as you load up, then as you spin, lightly touch both hands to your knees until you land. it helps your brain keep your weight centered.
