Just stop infront of a 30 footer and say "fuck it" and just go for it. Whats the worst that could happened. Hahahahahah jk. A tip would be to spot your landing and keep you head turned. For me snowboarding is all confidence so make sure you commit.

For 180s you basically just open your shoulders and ump off of your edge. For 360s and bigger spins, you have to coil or twist your torso as you go up the take off and uncoil your shoulders in the air to give you more help spinning. Also, you need to keep your head turned in the direction you are spinning and open your shoulders to stop your rotation when ou spot the landing.

do you want to try frontside or backside spins? also do u ride goofy or regular?

one of the most important things in spinning is getting a good set up turn into the jump to get you ready to spin off the jump.

let say you are doing a frontside spin, if you are goofy you would want to be coming at the jump on the right side while being on your toe edge so you head towards the left side as you approach the bottom on the lip. as you start going up the transition of the lip you rock back to your heel edge turning slightly up the lip. you should leave the lip right in the middle of your heel turn so that you are traveling straight off the lip and not drifting back to the right side.

after that its all about getting a good pop off the lip, bringing your knees up and following through with your head making sure to keep your eyes open and looking for the landing.
