This past season I took a snowboarding course for 1 credit at my university. We had one lesson each week, and I was in the freestyle group along with about 13-15 others. About the 3rd week in, the instructor had us all attempt a 360 off a small roller, but he said, if you don't think you can get the 3, just go for a 180. Not a single one of us landed it. Most kids didn't even try spinning all the way around. Pretty much everyone except a couple kids just went for a 180 but fell anyway.
After falling I was pretty determined to teach myself how to do it. I went the following saturday and just practiced on that roller over and over again. Finally nailed it. Started getting really comfortable with it. The next lesson, the instructor had us all try it again. Sitting on the slope, everyone was nervous and didn't want to go, they all tried letting other people go ahead of them. I ended up going second, and I nailed a bs360. It felt amazing, especially because I was the only one in the group who landed it.
