Default Backside 180 ?

When doing this trick should you land "blind" in the opposite direction your going, ride away switch and then turn your head or should your have your chin already on your back shoulder and ride away switch facing the way your going?

It really depends on how much air time you get. If you just do a bs 180 on flatground, you will most likely land blind for a split second and then start riding away switch. But if you have a little more airtime, you should be blind for a second, but should be looking switch before you even land. Landing with your chin on your back shoulder is not recommended because this could cause a over rotation and the dreaded edge catch.

Thanks for clearing that up, now I understand why I have been catching that edge on those bs 1's. I will try the blind and turn tomorrow.

I always land looking back at the landing. It's important to do that because your head slows your rotation this way and sets you in a straight trajectory down the landing.

Go toe edge to toe edge and keep looking back at the landing until you ride away before turning your head in the direction you're going. If you turn your head too soon back down the mountain then your momentum will throw you into a revert. As you get better on your edges, when landing switch, you'll be able to stomp them on either edge without reverting. It's important to get this because you'll have the same problem when spinning back 5's and it takes a little bit of effort to stop reverting as you rotate larger spins on steeper landings.

Makes sense, I’ve been landing flat. I’ll be back out tomorrow and land on that toe edge. Will follow up with the results. Thanks for the help!

This is exactly it.

Extremo,
I was able to land on the toe edge but as soon as I looked down hill the revert would happen again. I then tried to analyze my switch riding a bit more and my FS 1's. I came up with the conclusion that maybe I was winding up to much and the momentum was carrying me around. I then tried a few with minimal to no windup just mostly hip and leg rotation. That work and allowed me to ride away clean switch. Unfortunately the couple I landed successfully were on my last run. I won’t be back out until next Saturday. I feel my conclusion needs to be tested more before I can definitely say that that’s what it was. If you do read this let me know what you think. Thanks!
