you asked earlier which one was easiest either a fs or bs 3 well easiest will be a bs 3 because theres one edge to choose and one way to go. now with the fs 3 it could a bit tech. you can either go off your heals or toes. the toe take off for a fs jump can be tricky cause it involves good counter rotation and prewind up. In addition, the fs 3 is a blind landing so you have to spot your landing between your legs and then spin a fs 90 a bit more and stomp away. when watching videos or riders i really look at that, because you are stomping switch fs 3's, 7's and 10's it shows how good and comfortable you are with the board because those fs spins have blind landings. i know it seems out of context to your question but more information would not hurt.

But at the same time if BS is not your more comfortable direction then it's still gonna be easier to learn FS. BS you can also choose to launch of either edge, you can come in on your heels and go backside, granted its harder but its pretty sweet.

I still think you should just learn in your natural way, I'd rather spin a switch FS 7 than a FS 3 any day, because I'm that much more comfortable spinning in that direction.

Yea I think I had that same problem snowolf with the FS. I've tried both and b/c I ride regular it was naturally more comfortable for me to spin FS, but I was told that BS's were more easier to do than FS cause of the blind landing. I dunno hopefully I can just get one or the other down this season. I'm itching to just land a three either way. Which way would you guys recommend trying to get down first?

Try both. Everyone always has one side they natural tend to like better. However, that does not mean that side will be "easier" to learn. Try both and see how it goes...

This is a solid piece of advice. I personally had the same problem as you landing 270 on FS 3's, and when I exaggerated my pre-crank, I ended up consistently landing clean 3's.

Snowolf for the win.

Also when coming up to the jump or whatever your doing them of, its important not to go off it in a straight line because even including prewind you will still spin slow. its important to turn and prewind at the same time this way when you leave on an edge and wind out you get a lot more spin and it makes your jump look a whole lot better..

a huge thing for me if the carve i take into the jump and then throwing your arms too.
just be on your heel edge till about the start of the jump(depending on how long the take off is) then carve on your toe edge to get to help get the spin going, then throw your arms and look over your back shoulder and try an spot your landing
