when trowing a beginner three should i start on one side of the lump and land on the oposite site spining in between? ive herd its an easier way to begin. and when setting the spin should you carve off of the lip?
If u want to go cork sure go ahead but if ur just startin 3s i think u should find a jump that ur comfortable with and just go for it. Rotate ur shoulders and head first, and your feet should follow. Using your poles and arms to swing yourself around helps too if its ur first time, I leaned it that way. Its also good to try a 270 on a small hip or a spine first, its easier and it builds your confidence, then from there its only another 90. Good Luck!
For me doing 3's or 5's what ever on the ground didnt help skiing at all. It was completely different, you just have to go for it, make sure to pop hard off the balls of the feet, dont be leaning back and throw once you have popped and make sure to keep looking, just think about looking over your shoulder and it will set your rotation, look for your landing and stomp it! good luck, it took me a couple trys to do my first too
ok I used to browse through threads like this all the time. I personally just started doing threes this season but really got them down over the last five times i went. Anyway, when I look through all these threads about how to do 360s or 540s i always see that people say to spot your landing or pick a place and keep looking for it. This DID NOT work for me . . . (as a side note i feel like I may be the only one on NS with this view) when I would go for the 360 and spot my landing I always would end up getting to a little over 180 (lets say 220 for shits and giggles) and i would end up kind of flailing to make it around. I found that it is easier to just wind up hard and commit, do not put effort into spotting a landing , just go with the flow. As someone above me said, it is just like spinning on the ground really - it just takes more force. I find that I am spotting my landings now naturally and can land threes with ease. It will just click, it happened with me and a few of the people i ride with just out of the blue , we all attribute it to the fact that we just let it flow , dont think about it too much.
