Yea that video is really sweet, it's what made me go out and try 3s today...he makes it look so freakin easy. But for me, actually doing it is a completely different story.

ya but you still need to spot your landing blind, key component of a 3
Nev has some great instruction videos really helped me tons. I"m not at this point yet but I am studying like crazy on this.
I also have a new setup and it rides completely different than my old stiffer set up so you might also need to get used to the new board.
I'm sure others will chime in but as I have learned and been advised.
  • Start small
  • Master the beginning moves before advancing

and as always /\ snowolf with some great insight

wow i never thought of reaching vs bringing the board to you, but it makes perfect sense. I'm definitely a reacher and it for sure screws me up.

For 3's I always leave the lip both feet at the same time. For backside I leave off my toe edge, frontside leave off the heel edge.

pop off evenly it will keep your axis straight not having your body leaning back or off to the side then the motion is enhanced in the air and you are slamming down

Thanks again for all the advice. Unfortunately, mother nature is an old whore and she decided to make it 54 degrees and rainy today. I'll have to wait 'till tomorrow to put all this together on the mountain.

since the jumps at my local hills are pretty much spine transfer for me it helps if I throw my spins a little bit forward. This would make the landing a bit easier because I'm level in the air.

If you can't do back 180s then you def shouldnt be trying back 3's. Once you get the back 180 the back 360 almost will do itself.

I have trouble doing 3's with a grab it seems i can't get the board up close enough. I can do FS and BS 3's without grabing but I want to throw a grab in there now.
