Perfect! Since we are all on the topic of spin and timing correction of 360s I need a few tips.
So yesterday I was working on learning 360s for most of the day. It was my first real day trying to learn those mother fuckers and let me say I was getting so worked up and pissed off at myself when I couldnt land them or scrubbed off a jump. Incredibly infuriating. How long does it normally take to learn those things?
Any way...So I first started off making sure i had the stationary flat ground spin dialed in...check. Standing completley still I can pop, counter rotate and spin around a 3 (i am doing front side). Then when I tried that exact same thing while moving even at a walking pace I just lost all ability to spin at all. Fast forward some more and I am now able to most of the time in a smooth situation get some resemblance of a spin in there. I have narrowed my spins to 3 key things I need to do right to get a good 360...slight carve into the take off, POP, and rotate all the way around.
Note: I was practicing these on a run that has a lot of natural lips (kind of like off of a cat track) and mini step down jumps. Nothing really that good in the park to learn them on.
My biggest problem I keep having is that I dont pop enough. After working on it I got the spin mechanics down, which was my biggest problem at first, but now I dont have the pop right so I dont get enough air to spin all the way. Towards the end of the day I was putting those 3 things together but my timing was beginning to go completely wrong. On the last couple of runs I would start to carve and spin and pop before I had even gotten to the lip of the jump, so i would already be at almost at a 180 before I even left the lip of the jump.
Anyone have any tips on how to dial these things in?
Another side note: I can do these 360s goofy (normal stance) and switch. And depending on the approach i am taking to the jump, or if im practicing on side hits on a cat track that are on the left side doing them switch is easier. Not sure why, but as far as normal vs switch stance I really cant tell a difference in how hard it is to do the 3.
If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.
