i can spin about anything on something 35 or under but above that i get scared and go to slow and case it and it hurts
just start hitting bigger jumps straight until you hve the confidence to spin on them...at some point you gotta try it
If your not real good on jumps, chances are you aren't going to be comfortable on them and know your speed etc...
Watch someone else who's hitting the jump to gage your speed. Or if possible talk to them have them straight air the jump and you follow behind them to get teh speed right.
Once you got the speed straight air it until you feel safe, then do some straight air grabs. Once you feel really good on it trying a spin shouldn't be nearly has scary, you won't be worried about the speed, going to fast, to slow, air time, etc... you'll just be focused on the 360. Once you get comfy with those move up....
HUCK THAT SHIT!!!!!!!!! then once u stomped the shit out of it jizz all over it haha with some mad steeze
I found a good tip is to work your way up, 3 a smal jump, then 3 a medium jump, then 3 a large jump.
If you can't perfect a 3 on like a medium jump don't try it on a large jump.
But sometimes your mountain only has big jumps (not enough progression)...
So evetnually your gunna have to throw it on a big jump. A good trick to work your way up is to act like your gunna spin off the lip and just look behind you at the horizion and then back to the landing. This way you get the feeling of doing a spin (take-off, not seeing, landing) without doing one. Also, trying different straight air grabs helps to gain blance (and confedince) in the air.
And chances are, on any spin that your not corked or inverted the consequences aint so bad even if you land awkwardly.
And by the way, I'm not an expert, I'm in a similar situation, and this is my plan.
