For the past 2 seasons I have been snowboarding, I have been doing decent on the rails, grabs and most all tricks, but one thing that has been holding me back in my inability to spin. Technically, I can land a 360 off a jump, but the problem is, the technique that I use to get a 360 will pretty much only allow me to do 360s, and maybe possibly a 540 but that's pretty much it. In probably way too much detail im going to explain what I do.

First I'm building up speed on the area to the jump, what you normally do.

Then I setup for the spin off the jump.

I pop off the jump, my upper body goes into the spin but my legs stay straight for 2 seconds.

I counter rotate my upper body to get my legs to spin, here I can try to kick my legs in a wheel direction to force them to spin.

My legs move forward and can go up to a 360 spin.

My body is counter rotated to the point where if I spin my legs forward more, or move my arms back more, it would probably injure my stomach.


I probably don't need to explain why this is a problem, but this technique looks bad and limits my spinning ability, and also makes it impossible to do a grab when spinning. So if anybody knows anything about this problem and why my 360's arn't working out, please help out.
Also I have seen most of the videos on how to 360 and 540, but if anybody knows any lesser known but equally important tips, those would be incredibly helpful too.
You need to rotate your body with your legs in one solid unit, everything should spin at the same time. you need to get comfertable spinning your lower body at the same rate as your upper body, as well as pre loading your spins. For a smooth 360 your board should already be at a 25 degree angle as the tail of your board is leaving the jump, not straight. My friend was learning 360's last year and he did them the exact same way, by the end of the season he had figured it out and was able to land 360's with an ollie, all it took him was getting familiar with body positioning. Watch a few instructional video's on how to perform them and you will pick out the differences between what your doing right and wrong.

maxv8989,
have you ever thought to video tape your 360s to better analyze and give others the chance to analyze your movements. Seeing yourself in action could be all you need and if you still can't pinpoint it. I'm sure several members here would nail it.

It sound like you need to keep your core stiff and bring your legs with you. When your spinning off the lip next time, keep you core stiff and think of bringing the tail of your board around. I just made a video on how to spin 360's. Snowboard Pro Camp – How to Spin Frontside 360 | www.SnowboardProCamp.com
