Default Frontside 360 help

So I have been working on my front 3's for a long time. I first had a major problem with flailing. I have sliced that problem but now I have a bigger one. I always go backseat everytime I try to fs 3. When I reach 180 my board is almost vertical with my tail being as high up to my head. I make sure not to drop my shoulder and I don't but I can't figure out we this keeps happening. Also if I do land I land on my tail or on my side because I go so off axis. I almost broke my arm bc of this. Someone please help. I have been working so hard and this is all that keeps happening. Thank you

Hi Luke,

This is a really common issue that many people (including myself) have struggled with.

From what you are saying, it sounds like your run in to the jump and possibly the angle of your take off are a little out.

With your run in - ensure you enter the jump with a mellow "S" shape, going on your toes slightly as you approach, then as you near the jump, start to shift your weight onto your heels as you take off.

With your angle of take off - ensure you leave the jump with shoulders square to the lip. It sounds like one shoulder is higher than the other on takeoff?

There could be stance issues which could be affecting this and your angle on takeoff and run in might be fine. If it is your stance, check that you have bent knees (knees to tips of board) and your back is straight. A lot of riders struggling with 3's is due to them having straight legs, and compensating with a bent back (thus throwing your balance off).

I hope this gives you some ideas on what to consider.
