Default Any tips on a 360 tailblock? (I have no idea what to call it)

I think this trick looks very cool, but don't know where I can start to learn it.

Would you call this a 360 tailblock? I can only roll my nose half as high up into the air than Mr. Bradshaw in this video. Does anyone have any tips?

Do you sort of have to extend up or hop up with the back foot to get that kind of height?

If you break down what he really did there:

He pops a molly... I mean ollie and basically starts a flat land fs 3 with a nosegrab, lands on his tail still holding his nose and butters it around to finish the 3.

I guess you could call it a tailblock 360, seems appropriate. I'm gonna try this myself, looks fun.

I'd start with these.

- nose grabs on lock on small features
- switch bs 180 into tail press (like a 90 and tail press it around) - that should give you the landing/finish part.
- flatland fs 3's
- tailblocks

Thats how I'm seeing it anyways, somebody else might have other ideas how to do this, it doesn't look that difficult. To answer your question though you need to ollie.

Yeah I've always had problems jumping high ollies. Most of my ollies are like 50 cm off the ground and anything higher than that I either have to seriously huck myself or not be able to jump over. =(

Go watch Scott Stevens do his. I love Bradshaw, but between the width of his stance, the softness of his deck, and the lack of any deliberate motion, its hard replicate like he does.
