Trying for a Front 3...Cant get past 270 degrees
 
Front 3 Attempt - YouTube

I know it looks sloppy. Tips?

It's hard to tell for sure, but I think you stop leading with your upper body before you've finished the spin. that'll stop it dead.

You're not looking into the spin and the spin looks like it is mostly coming from your legs due to not looking. Your body follows where your head is looking etc... Been beaten to death in other posts by people who can describe the ideal technique better than I can. You need to look into the spin the whole way around look at your head in the video. Also your jump isn't ideal for what you are trying to learn since you can't really set up turn to generate edge pressure without killing all your speed. Refer to the snowboard addiction videos on how to spin imho you might even want to try to relearn how to spin 180 with emphasis on tucking in which should get you used to spinning without the use of your legs.

PS: Where you at in Alberta? :)

Yeah thats what I was I thinking. Need a bigger jump and also need to use my body to spin not so much my legs. My airtime is so short I really have to huck it to try and get it around which is making my spin very sloppy. A bigger jump with more air allows you to float it more? Correct?

Btw I am from Sherwood Park.:)

Btw I took the vid off youtube. Thanks for the tips.

Cool yeah I'm down in Calgary.

Your jump is in theory big enough to get a 360 out. Its more you don't have room to setup carve your way into the jump lip. You actually don't need anything big to spin a 360. It's not as far around as one might think. They are floatier on bigger jumps but you don't want to be learning how to 360 on something large. I learnt how to 360 on a small spine which was about the same size as your jump except it had more run in room to play with.

Watch from 4:30 because imho thats really the part you are missing. Generating edge pressure and spinning with the upper body. Don't fall into the trap of thinking you need something bigger because thats a recipe to get hurt you should be able to spin and throw a 360 on pretty much nothing once you get the technique down.

I know you were asking about backside 360's a while back. Did you ever manage to get those down?

You shouldn't need more airtime to spin a 360, a bigger jump will just compensate for sloppy spin technique. If you want strong, stylish spins you want to be able to master the technique on flatground and sidehits first.

It's all about your carving and your timing and if you master that you'll have smooth un-hucked 360 spins (even on flatground and tiny jumps).
