Advice on taking a 180 to a jump
 
Recently I've been trying to land a bs 180 on a 10' jump at my hill and I keep sketching out on the takeoff and not getting any rotation. :confused: The lip on the jump is really sharp and its hard to get a rotation going on it.

I've been riding for about 5 or 6 years now but mostly free riding and I've just started getting into freestyle this year. I'm 5'8" 135 pounds and ride regular. My 180 are on lock on side hits and rollers but I just can't get them on this jump. :mad:

Any help given is appreciated thanks for reading my post.

Make sure you are doing a set up turn. When you are approaching the lip do a heel side turn and as you begin to travel up the lip do a toe side turn and take off straight but still from your edge. This will help your rotation. Since 180 is such a small spin you wont need to pre wind. Pop off both feet and let the rotation come naturally and calmly. The way I spot the landing on my back 1's is by looking up hill until I see the knuckle pass under me. Bend your knees as you land and look forward and ride away switch.

I'm trying to get the setup turn going but I feel like the angle of the jump doesn't allow me to complete the spin.

If you get a chance post a picture of the jump. If its really REALLY steep (like beyond 40 degree's) I understand it being hard to spin off of.

I'm goin there today so I'll see if I can get a picture and report back tonight.
Thanks for the help

You don't need to setup or spinoff of the jump for a 180 off of a 10 footer. Just get in the air, flick your hips, and you're done.

Good Lord Hairston... that was turrible.

That's me to a tee :laugh:
