when landing blind, you're supposed to be looking on the landing BUT up the mountain not down mountain. you're supposed to be looking at the area where your left foot is, which is now ur tail.

if you look down the mountain too soon, you will revert, meaning you will continue to rotate after landing (like what you did in your video). once youre stable you can look down.

go youtube snowboard addiction. they have awesome tutorials.

i think you meant landing any backside 1's (back 1's, front 3's etc), not anything switch. you land switch on front 1's back 5's but you don't land blind.

basically, when the last 180 of your rotation is a backside turn, you have to be looking up the mountain behind you when landing (land blind) to prevent revert.

Calvary, go watch your video again and you will see exactly what everyone is talking about.
It's at about 4 seconds that is you can totally see what everyone means. Then try to compare it to a teaching 180's video and you will see the difference. SA has a good video, SnowWolf has a great video's and many others
Video is a great tool, so you can actually see not just be told what happened
