It was his son that did the 360 hence the title "real snowboarder" which is what he wants to be. He's doing it tho! Sure that guy will be able to do 3's in no time.

To legit to quit.
On the move this season.

looks like I found my inspiration to work on my buttering next year. My body doesn't bend well these days, and much younger than him. So I may have to give it a shot.
Great to see another dad riding with his kid

Guy is a Boss!
I plan on riding and biking past my 70's as well if I last that long!

Anyway, it's all about practice! It sucks to go back on mellow open slopes to goof around but it helps.

you got it. hips are the easiest to throw spins off. If that's your goal that's the best place to start getting the swing of it.

EDIT: valuable lesson. Always spin into a hip never away... I learned this the hard way off a big quarter pipe gap hip I committed a BS 3 off the left as a goofy rider... haha.. Fell 15ft outta the sky to flat. but I think this should be common sense.

...This is where I'm at after widening my stance.

Here is an edit of some crappy phone video I had a friend shoot on Sun.

This clip is NOT "Rad or sick!" I've got a LONG way to go to even catch up with the Older Dude, but I am slowly getting it! Widening the stance on both the Rome & NS boards really did help. Feels a bit more stable and I'm getting more height on my presses!

So here is this where I'm at after this weekend's attempts:

initiation of all the moves seems good, but last second you do a lil jerk to force it the last 1/3...just hold the position and let it come around on its own, smooth like buttah baby..lil bit faster might make that easier too

Your stance doesn't seem unusually wide to me. Must have been pretty narrow before!
