lol. anywayyy i realized why im having trouble spinning 3's. im getting too psyched up. im going "im gonna spin, im gonna spin, im gonna spin, im gonna holy sh-!" and i spin a 90 and freeze up and refuse to turn my head. i was thinking maybe if i zone out and dont think of anything and right before i spin i close my eyes. would that work or is that completely stupid?
no i can spin 1's, its just the fear of having my back to the downhill. what do you to get over it? just say fuck it and spin, or do u have some "technique" i guess.
its pretty much both tell the fuck it turns into this'll be easy. This was my biggest concern with learning BS 180s just go for it tell you get it and really go for it not just kinda say "I tried" and walk away
know the technique then say fuck it and spin. you are most likely going to fall the first time you try so you have to just accept it, i did and even posted the vid on here somewhere but now i can land them
No, don't just close your eyes and spin lol. Its not so much about zoning out, as it is focusing your mind on landing the trick. Visualize it in your head, use some breathing techniques to calm yourself and your halfway there. Another thing that helps is to have someone record you and can later look at the tape and will understand where you are going wrong.
yeah dont close your eyes haha just know what you about to do focus do it. i've had this with skating stair sets and you just gotta suck it up and say to your self" screw it and do it." then own that spot/ trick
Definitely have the mechanics and feel down before just hucking yourself off a jump; all that will do is get you injured and shatter your confidence. You say you don't like the feeling of having you back downhill, but say you have ones on lock?? Even BS 1s?
You should have both FS and BS 1s on lock before trying 3s.

You should also try spinning 3s off cat tracks and side hits to get comfortable before taking it to jumps.
