Default Park Tips?

Hello everyone, I am here just looking for tips for the park. I have ridden 6 times, but due to my background, snowboarding came to me easily. I currently have a directional board, and Im looking to replace it with a New Skate banana. I know this board will help with jibs, but will it help with 360s? I have 180s down, but I can't seem to get past 270 to 300 degrees. :/ As of last time, I have been able to hit 20 footers with no problem, but Im looking for tips to hit the 20s to 30s with much more stability and control, any good ways to practice? Stance tips, approach? Also, I am trying to learn backflips, I have the motion down, but I always washout at the end, how can I work at keeping this from happening? Any other tips would be great, especially for "donkey dick" rails.

Thanks!

Sorry but I kind of feel like this is a show off thread.

Sorry you feel that way, I sorta thought I have to tell people what I can do so they can give me tips that apply to me?

Kinda agree especially with 2 posts.

A better way would be to ask on a specific trick. As it looks your wakeboarding gave you a solid foundation to start boarding.

Youve only gone 6 times? Can you even carve and ride at high speeds yet?? If you say yes we will need video proof showing what you think high speeds and carving are.... How about riding switch?? These are all things you should have a good hold on before you even start thinking about stepping your park game up....

Not saying I dont believe your hitting the park but I doubt with 6 days of riding that you are actually coming close to throwing 3's.

I picked it up very quickly as well but even when I was hitting small features in the park after 10 days of riding I probably should have been mastering the basics.

I used to ski for about 10 years so I had the idea of how snowboarding worked after seeing others snowboard for years. I can carve and ride at high speeds, and I can get down blacks without leafing or falling much. I can get to around 300 degrees on the 3. I ride with friends that are very good, so watching them has helped me so much! I've spent most of my time in the parks. In my first day of riding I had the basics of snowboarding down pretty good.

id say a good place to start is with posting a video of your 360 attempts, this way people can critique your form. there are a lot of things you could be doing wrong: setup carve, prewinding, keeping your shoulders rotated, not popping enough, and people wont be able to pinpoint a specific problem without a video. I learned 3's last year thanks to people on this forum and all i had to do was upload a video of my attempts.

6 days? and you can do all that shit?
just because you can ski doesn't mean you can snowboard, period the end.

i'm calling bullshit, sorry.
