Ground FS/BS 180's
 
When doing FS/BS 180 on the ground and not off any jumps do you normally just pop or ollie/nollie into the 180 or carve into it? I have frontside down no problem, just when riding switch (goofy) I try to 180 back to riding normal and i always end up eating it.

you need a little edge to give you something to resist against then pop into your 180. A very small set-up turn will put you onto an edge then pop the 180.
Popping flat based is not easy as your board can slip around from under you.

as you know, spinning front side is almost effortless, hardly any pop is needed for that. but spinning back side will take a little bit of pop because your rotation will be a tad slower starting off. try getting the hang of the bs spin starting in your normal riding position (regular). just be sure to spin your head and shoulders around all of the way, lead with your upper body. don't huck it, just rotate it. after you learn bs from your comfortable position then you can spin backside out of your switch potion.

Yeah, I think your right. Also, I think the hardest thing is to keep your head following your spin instead of trying to look forward and go against what is natural to your body.

Don't forget BS you need to spot your landing blind. I have found once I spot the landing the body follows nicely to land. I really over wind for mine at this time still being newer to it, that helps me to snap the board around all the way.
