its personal pref. really.. You will soon learn some jumps are better for each spin. If your regular it may be easier to spin backside on a jump that is angled skiers right and frontside on jumps to skiers left.

That said, I tell all my buddies that are trying to get into spins the same thing:

"Learn to ride switch well... its a much more important skill and will get you further in snowboarding and make learning spins far easier when you are comfortable riding your board both ways."

In my personal preference I like back 1's 3's and 5's. I just find the prewind to be easier, but like bcasey said. LEARN SWITCH.

I think it's easier to spin backside than it is frontside. Sometimes spinning frontside, I will get lazy and stop after 90 degrees if I'm doing a 180. When spinning backside, I always get the 180 around even if the landing is blind.
