Default rotating (craving) prematurely when attempting fs 360

i dont know why i do this. i know my mistake but many times i attempt a fs 3 off this 20 ft kicker i will crave heel edge too early. when i leave the lip i already rotated 45-90 degrees. and it throws off my balance and i lose speed making me eat it hard on the knuckle. it's like, when i approach the jump i tell myself not to rotate too soon but for some reason my body doesn't do what i ask it to. anyone else had this problem before? how did u overcome it?

You need come in straight, minimal sped checks and create a spinning platform while going into the jump.

Check out this free video and it'll give you a good idea of what to do:

when you are approaching the takeoff of the jump stay slightly left then make a toeside carve transitioning to a heel side carve about halfway up the jump. You want to time it so that when you leave the lip you are going straight.
