Default 180 hardway

Hey folks!

Has anyone got tips for doing a 180 hardway?

I have been hitting them but they just seem to be a lot of work!
Like all I have to throw it round... but then I've not tried it on a jump yet...???

I'm thinking that exra air time will give me space to get it round easier???

Are you sure you are talking about the right thing? Hardway implies a spin onto a rail specifically a spin started where you spin "away" from the rail. I don't see how jumps fit in or how extra air time fits into spinning onto a rail?

also no airtime is required for any 180s

Ok, thanks for the correction.... Maybe not the right thing then???

If I carve across the slope, riding regular on my toe edge and pop into a spin, it would want to go backside.

What I am doing is spinning it the other way into a frontside???
What's that called?

You wouldn't spin this without air, you need to carve to make it hard and that's the point of it...

when you push your back foot around heel first and look uphill, this is a backside 180.

the other is frontside.

I'm sure Jed has a good explanation of it.

That sounds right but that's not what's happening....
I ride in like a back 1' but then I over rotate my upper body for a front...
Toe edge, spin counter clock..... (the wrong way)

This is probably why I can't find any videos on YouTube for it! Lol...

Ok, I've seen these excellent vid's...

I am doing front 180's but off my toe edge (the wrong way) ....
Not sure why the coach was getting me doing this but it was fun... even though it was hard work....

Dave,
The hard part for me was chaning the timing of your rotation. You need to start rotating your shoulders before your in the air so that when the board leaves the ground it won't start floating into a 180 the "right" way. They do get easier and smoother as you practice and open alot of doors for your riding. Once you nail them, you can start trying to land on your toeside again(essentially going from a regular toeside carve into a switch toesidecarve with a front 180 imbetween) or start trying to spin backside off your heels. Very scary but also very doable.
