Default balls

So i'm a decent boarder but i really didn't ride park until this year mainly because i rode with my parents who are skiers. I got good enough just riding DH with my parents that can 360 while on flat ground and can do some other neat flat land tricks but i find that when i hit big jumps for some reason i can't do simple tricks like 360's. Does anybody have any suggestions in terms of enlarging my sack so i can do some better tricks? thanks.

Thanks for the help, that makes a lot ofsense that I should go for smaller stuff first specifically 180's and gettign bigger air, the funny thing is that I can get plenty of air for a 360 but i'm always worried that if I do a spin I'll over rotate and land on my edge and facveplantsd are genereally not very enjoyable.

Or the dreaded under-rotation. Nothing quite like a 270 to scorpion.
