Learning 270 off

I'm working on learning how to 270 out, i just need tips. I don't feel comfortable commiting.

I approach the rail bs and go into a bs boardslide. Slightly over the nose. I then need help, do i put hands way back at my tail to fs spin out? Or should i spin bs? Look under or over the shoulder? Etc. tips please!

Your best bet is to continue to frontside 270 out. The best way to think about it is that your board will follow your shoulders, so continue to look over your front shoulder. You only have a limited amount of time to spin so remember to look as far over as you can and turn your shoulders the way you want to spin.

This. Your shoulders follow your eyes/head and your body follows your shoulders. I think this is the most simple way to describe how to spin out.

life IS good.

You need to learn 180 on to 180 out first. The upper body position is the same as in 270's. Learn them on boxes first then you're ready for the 270. It's the same trick with the upperbody just with the legs delayed. Practicing the 180 on 180 out will help you feel the position the shoulders will be in. They're really easy after that.

I'd apply this to both frontside and backside bs to 270.
