Red face Some Qs on 360s!

Hey sup, ive been riding for a while now and recently dialed in my 360s pretty good. I have a few problems tho that i would like to ask and see it get answered.

1. My threes are somehow overrotating, i can land but usually in 450 since i keep spinning and i cant stop!! Is there a good way to stop rotating so much? i dont even huck that hard but i do pre-spin a bit b4 the lip. (gonna try adding a pop into it maybe thatll slow it down )

2. I wanna add a grab in to my Backside 3. Whats the easiest grab and with which hand?

Thanks guys and as always, have fun shreddin!

Overrotating on frontside 3? You need to spot it blind. Back 3's you should "unlock" your chin from your shoulder after the landing comes into view (should be after about 180) and finish it with your hips.

Back 3 I think stalefish are easiest because they are right there anyway. Front 3's are opposite, seems more natural to grab melon.

cant really help with the over-rotation...best advice is to just lead with your head.

as far as grabs, for a backside 360 either an indy or a "shallow" tail grab is easiest for me. im regular footed, so right hand just behind the back binding, toe side.

Whats wrong with Indy? And as for stalefish, i get into the grab at the 90 degree part right? and with my right hand i presume (i ride reg) and by unlocking my chin, you probably mean kinda to counterrotate against the direction of travel of my shoulders. ITs just that im feeling A LOT of force pushing me

Also this is all on back 3s

Nothing wrong with indy, he's talking about tindy. If you are going to grab tindy, you must do it on a straight air, bone the nose as far as you can scream "TINDY" as loud as you can.

Just look down the landing as your head comes around from the first 1 on a back 3. It'll naturally stop your rotation as your hips kind of finish the last 3.

Stale (regs) right hand between binding, heel edge. On backside spins, it's easy to just grab it since your body is already rotated up.

if you're already over-rotating 3's and not trying to, seems like you'd have no problem stomping a 540 if trying. as for HUGE jumps, no pain no gain!
