Default I cant spin off boxes and rails!!!!

Ok so I've spent about 80% of my time on the mountain this season in the park, I'm getting better/more comfortable with simple stuff like 50-50s on flat rails and down/flat/down rails and all kinds of boxes, I can boardslide flat boxes, and now I'm starting getting in some good ollies off the end of rails and boxes. Now that I feel comfortable enough where I can ollie off, I feel like the next step is 180 off. I tried about 15-20 bs 180s today off boxes and I had one full 180 with a clean ride away. Every other time my spin comes up short and it's only like a 90 off (lame, I know). I can 180 fine when I'm just riding on a regular slope, and I find that bs 180s are much easier than fs 180s. I feel like I'm unable to wind up before the jump, either that or even when I do get a good wind up, it doesn't really translate into a good spin. Not sure what I'm missing here. Any advice

Jump higher. Turn harder. Wind up to the extent you can while in the slide.
But most of all, remeber your body follows your head. Lead with your eyes.

do an ollie and then spin, the reason for your underrotating is that you cant get a decent grip on the box due to the wax, so pop and then spin

how long are the boxes you are doing them on? maybe you dont have enough time to reset before the spin.

They are fairly short, I would imagine it would be easier on a long box to setup, but I've just been moving slower over the box to compensate.

Windup and speed is key, since it will give you the momentum you need to complete the spin. Generally I can spin frontside off boxes flat based, for backside I usually lock in to the toe side rail of the box to give me added momentum to get around a spin.

when i spin off a box I dont do a typical ollie. I do the both feet at the same time jump and spin. I find it easier...
