BS 3's

I've been trying to nail a bs 3 for majority of last season and never officially got it. ITS SO FUSTRATING! I can never fully commit to a complete 360. I would always land about 270 and I would either eat it or have a sketchy landing. I've gotten really comfortable with bs 180s b/c of the constant attempts at the 360's, but still having trouble. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Awesome trick, it's one of my stock tricks I pull off whatever, and one I see people struggle with alot. The common problem is that people have gone blind into the rotation and as soon as they come around and see the landing they prepare to land. But at this stage you'll have probably gotten around about 270 and as they have stopped rotating the head and upper body the lower body tends to stall in the air. So as you guessed you need to commit, my friend taught me a cool trick which isn't really endorsed by the associations but it worked for me and others, and that is to point your belly button towards where you want to be. This keeps your upper body moving and is what pulls you through the rotation. This is especially important if bs is your weaker direction for spinning.

It sounds cliche but a large majority of freestyle is commitment, keeping that upper body moving past the point where you've gotten yourself comfortable in the past.

Hopefully I've made some sense. I'm terrible at explaining things through writing.

You open up your rotation too early.
I don`t know how to perform 360's (yet ) but I found this on the web in the past:
snowboard methodology. If you look in this link you find a pro tip that when doing a 360 (FS in this case) it happens that you`ll find yourself always lading a 270 instead off a 360, just as you say. Hi's tip is to stay tucked longer!

Hopefully this tip helped, good luck putting a BS360 down!

That's one trick tip that I haven't actually heard yet. I'll have to try it out next time, but yea I think the issue is once in the blindspot of the turn I come out of the tuck to early like you said Snowjoe. Thanks for link toni I checked it out and it was pretty tight, very helpful too. Appreciate the tips guys, can't wait till this season!

Thanks for linking that terminology PDF, that's going to help me a lot as I start trying to do tricks.

Totally up to you. People tend to spin one way more comfortably than the other. I spin BS better than FS so I learnt BS first, which seems common with goofy riders, the same as regular riders spinning FS. I would advise to learn the one your more comfortable with and then learn the harder direction once you have a good idea of whats going on in the air.

Alright well in that case I stick with learning one first. Also I did a little research and a few of the trick tips (including toni's linked tip- thanks toni)that i've seen shows the riders doing an indy along with the 3. Does this help b/c it forces you to tuck or are they just doing it for style?

Learn without the grab first, its to make the spin look better, and its more difficult as its harder to get the spin required to complete the rotation as your upper body can't move as freely, and your gonna need a bit more airtime.

Once you have the 360 dialled in try a 180 with a grab, then move on again to a 360 with a grab.

Oh and make it a nosegrab
