5s; 540s any tips

Hey I can spin 5s but when I land I wash out even though I haven't over or under rotated. Does anybody have suggestions?

It sounds like you are reverting and if you land backseat, you're going to wash. Where are you spotting your landing?

Where are you washing out exactly? It's quite a general question so I'll give you a general answer...

Go faster, go bigger - it will give you more time to get your rotation around, to spot your landing, so you can STOMP the landing flat base and ride away. Good luck.

Land centered, spin slower. Also landing very very slightly on your toe edge can help stop you spinning. Maybe get 5s on side hits down before trying them off a jump.

Just to play devils advocate, you could also try going off small jumps as to remain centered and maybe not wash out so bad. practice flat ground spinning as well helped me nail my 5's

it'll be easier to give you tips if you tell us what kind of spins you are trying.

It might be a little bit harder, but try your best to whip your legs around and stop the landing for a 7. It always feels better landing in your original stance, and when you really stomp your landing, it helps stabilize you, which prevents washouts.
