As for how high you get off the ground, that's not really important either. As long as you can pop correctly and get off the ground, it's fine. The exercise is more about learning to pop correctly with the right timing than it is about popping hard/high.
It's ok. It's just that I think I have fallen into the silly trap of believing popping higher, would make me do 360 easier on green runs ...... which is wrong obviously. I read your website and I know you are an advocate of using a good carving technique rather than using excessive brunt popping force, to achieving 360. It is this preparatory carving and the critical timing of the subsequent pop I cannot nail down on green runs. Hence I am craving to watch a video to see you demo it from a third person's perspective.

I have read and seen other youtube videos teaching the ground trick FS 360 by first doing heel side pressuring, then nollie, let board rotate about 30-40 degrees (some even say 90 degrees) then hurl yourself into the air rotating what's remaining of the 360. That seems to make sense but it's awfully difficult and too technical to do so many steps. Your teaching seems to omit all that initial nollie stuff and I am more in favor of trying out your method. Cheers.

I'd definitely recommend checking out the snowboard addiction free trick tips if you haven't already (How to 360, 540 and 720 Frontside or Backside (regular riders) from Snowboard Addiction. - YouTube). You can basically see what my 360s look like, since basically everyone 360s this way.

What my advice is basically doing is taking the same technique described in that video, but learning the timing and technique on green runs first. So everything up until release point should be the same as a jump 360 setup in the video, except obviously you don't get any real air like you would off a jump.

Thanks Jed. I did watch that video and I have just watched it again. I don't know how to apply the (jump) things they teach on just the green runs though. Your idea is great but I just wish I could see how you do 360 one after another just on green runs, as opposed to off jumps (in SA videos) from a third person POV (to quote your words).

If you have your 180's on lock you'd know you don't need any pointers. 360's are practically effortless after you learn the 180.

You want a pointer. Learn your 180's. It's that simple.

Got it. Yes I will. Thanks Extremo.
