Snowboard 3's

Hey guys, I just had a quick question. I've recently learned back 3's, but they are not going too well. I am getting the rotation around fine, but I tend to shoot off right after the jump. I am on my toe edge and try to go off straight as possible, but still tend to drift off to the right when in the air and land towards the right of the landing. Any tips to fix this problem?

Thanks

maybe your riding your toe edge too much and causing you to go right. i would suggest try leaving the jump more flat based but holding a small toe edge. remember set up carve as well if you haven't.

Ok thanks. Yah, I've watched so many videos on how to do everything perfect. Last time I tried that I landed on my face haha. Oh well I'm used to it

if your landing to the right hand side of the landing I guess your proabably a regular rider who is carving to far round on the take off and not leaving the lip in a straight line.

have a look the snowboard addiction spinning video's as seeing the ideal take off line will explain it much better than i can here

Yeah that's the video I have been watching over and over again. Haha thanks though. I guess I'm just not remembering everything as a approach the jump.
