For example watch 4:03 to 4:08 in this video.
YouTube - Thank Thank Stack Footy Scott Stevens
Even on flat ground a lot of people can spin a 360 or a 540 on the ground, and also I realized it does take a while to get good, but I have been snowboarding for over 3 years and I can barely get passed a 180. When I don't have a board attached to my feet I could do a 540 and even a 720 on flat ground, but for some reason the board doesn't spin with me, so is there a way I can improve my technique so I can get better at it?

Hmmm I'm not sure... I just started landing 360's off jumps, never did one on flat ground. You gotta keep your head turned, that's all I know.

The spin you talk about in that video is done with perfect timing and massive core muscle strength. If you notice his upper body was almost 180 before even leaving the stall. Then his upper body completely stops when he uses his core muscles to transfer the upperbody's momentum to his lower body and board. Then he lands with his upper body almost 180 behind his feet.
