my 360 attempt video

ive been doin some park for the past year or so, mostly boxes and rails, but started to get into jumps recently. I feel comfortable in the air and can hold some solid grabs. after hitting some 30-40 footers the other day with straight airs (YouTube - 100 0035 - im the second person) i decided i needed to start doing rotations because straight airs just are not enough. here is my 360 attempt on a smaller jump in the park. (YouTube - 100 0039). I was wondering what advice you guys had for me to help me stomp them and get the rotation around easier. I hope to try them again on the same jumps this friday.

was the last couple seconds your attempt? you want to come off the lip with more of an angle. turn your shoulders and hips to initiate the spin right when when you take off.

Bend your knees more in the air and when your landing. The main thing I noticed was how straight your legs were the whole time. The extra clearance will make it easier to complete the full rotation. Aaaand absorb the shock by bending your knees on the landing so your board doesn't wash out. Nice attempt though!

Main thing I noticed is that you need to keep your shoulders rotated in the direction of your spin along with your head. You opened up midway through your spin. Pretend like your trying to press your chin against your shoulder, that will help with a smooth spin.

A little bit bigger of a jump would make it easier to land as well.

His angle (straight) is good. Coming off the lip on an angle, causes you to scrub speed and start spinning to early, which makes you more likely to knuckle a jump.

I would say staying more compact, pop more, and turn your shoulders more (like Mistah says) and be looking over your shoulder (in the direction you're spinning).
