Your why: It's going to screw you up when you hit bigger jumps and spin bigger rotations because you aren't able to control your cork properly.
Anyone can cork by throwing their shoulder down, but being able to control how much you cork and when you cork is going to be more and more important as you hit bigger features and do bigger tricks.
Learning control over how and when you spin is a fundamental basic skill that you'll use for a lot of other snowboard tricks and if you skip it you're only handicapping yourself later and building bad muscle memory.
Oh and I highly suggest going back and learning 180s. Skipping steps in progression is always a bad idea.
