Don't look at your feet.
You don't need to set for a 9 to get a 270 on stay relaxed and set the spin easy. Stay forward don't lean back and look at the end of the rail not at your feet cause you will end up slipping out if you look at your feet to much.
I skiied for a year when i was younger i can ride fine already but i wasw snowboarding for the last 3 years of my life. Ive been like 3 times this season ive got switch ups and zero spins and shit idk what else to try really?
If you're talking about a street style down rail or box... Approach with a wide stance and speed, and then pop up. Don't worry about getting the spin around super fast, as it will come. In the air, spot your estimated landing area on the feature, and make sure to keep your knees bent. When you land, let your legs compress with the rail, locking yourself down. There ya got it!

i learned a 270 onto a matress box (about 2ft wide and really low to the ground) because i was scared i wouldn't be able to line it up properly. ive only just moved to doing it onto narrower boxes. is it hard to 270 onto a rail or a thin FD box?
I find it helps to spot your landing like you would for a 360, only look for your landing at 180. The less time you are blind in the air the more stable you will be. Try to land with as little impact as possible, and spread your legs out. Then look at the end of the rail. (Helps you stay on the rail/box.)

haha thanks dude ive been having problems with my 2 ons for like 3 years now and this finally got me to get them. Definitly the way i just learned mine was to think of the poping on part as a 180 so jump your body 180 in the air over the rail and spot it and when your spotted and over the rail perfect finish the rotation. I stomped mine like 2nd try today. stoked
just go for it onto a box, there easy, u will most likley not get hurt and its easy to learn from ur mistakes, just do it! i landed em on my first try and i decided to go for it when i was like 10 feet infront of the box
