Can only do Corked 360s?

So earlier in the season I was able to land little frontside 3's off little features, but I destroyed my front ankle and broke my toe mid season so when I resumed (2 weeks later) I wasn't able to go frontside anymore because it put too much tension on my front ankle causing sharp pain. So I tried backside...and I got em down nice...but somehow I cork them? So basically...I can only do corked backside 360's. Besides the fact that I've completely skipped 180s(which I will work on), Is this going to hamper my progression if I don't try to get down regular 3's? Or will this give me an advantage with more advanced tricks later?

If you can't do 180's and you can't control your 360's to spin the way you want them I would say your way ahead of yourself and you need to back it up to straight airs until you have control and learn proper 180's.

I second this. Back in the day I used to be guilty of this same thing. Learning proper 180's is crucial to having control in the air.

If I do it corked every time, doing the same approach, with the same result, I'd say they're being thrown the way I want them to be thrown. I realized it was corked after the first attempts, and liked it, so I kept with it, and nailed them down now. Why would I have to back up to straight airs if i can hit transfers, spines, hips, etc, do different grabs, and cork a backside on command? I do them on purpose, fully aware i'm using a cork approach. I can 180 onto a box and out, I hit jibs and can go switch out, so it's not like i'm beyond my ability to control the board. Obviously I'll be going back to work on the 1's, but they will be easy enough. Plus like I said, i was able to go frontside before my injury. Which leads me back to my original question

I do agree. It's not like I'm just going to skip it all. I guess I'm asking in a general sense is learning a corked 3 before a regular 3 going to make it harder on me to learn more adv tricks later?

Then my answer to you is yes, this will hamper your progression because you are skipping cruicial steps. Your not going to get a different answer on this forum I can assure you of that so if you came here looking for someone to say good job, move onto 1080's now it's not gonna happen.

read my edit. No need to get butt hurt because I'm not bowing down and taking your word. I'm challenging ideas so I can have a better understanding of what I need to do. I'm not going to just do what I"m told because someone said so, not without fully understanding. Calm yourself. Plus you didn't even answer my question the first time without telling me WHY, all you said was to go back to straight airs.

lmao... who's butthurt?

I did answer your question, you just didn't like the answer.

My point is that if you truly had good board control spinning a 360 would not be hard for you to spin flat, your stating that "somehow" you cork them, which means you don't really know why therefore you can't control it. This is not a good thing.

Anyone with self respect wouldn't like that answer.

I also stated I do them on purpose. Using a cork approach, I execute a cork spin. On purpose. I can't do regulars because it hurts my ankle. Sorry you're clinging onto how I first illustrated my question, I was just trying to illustrate my confusion on how this even came to be.

Extremo answered me better with his ending sentence

I answered you in my first post

Your way ahead of yourself and you need to back it up to straight airs until you have control and learn proper 180's.

Shall we dance somemore?
