360 Learning Curve

so this season i'm trying to step it up in the park, i can do back 1s off of rollers, and the past 3 times i have gone on each run, i have attempted a back 3 off a small side hit so i am already on my toe edge, and i can land it maybe 1/4 times, but the other 3 times i am falling because i am somehow off axis during the spin and i end up on my ass or washing out on my heelside edge.

I was just wondering how long did it take people that can consistently land 3s to get to that point, and if you guys (or gals) have any tips on correcting this spinning off axis stuff.

when i don't land it imagine there is a line from my head to board strait down it goes from | to / during the spin, and i end up on my ass.

I am not having trouble getting the full 360, and i have already seen the Snowboard addiction vids.

Thanks,

sry for posting more "help w/3s threads" lol

Too Fast!

fixing the off axis is a matter of correcting the way you throw your weight and your head. go somewhere flat and throw a 3. now take the exact motion from that and bring it to the jump. when i first started doing 3s i would throw them parallel to the lip of the jump which would cause me to go off axis

It probably took me about a week of trying 3's to feel comfortable with them. Just keep at it and soon 3's will seem easy and you will be stepping up to the 5.
