I just started freeskiing this year, and I got my 180s down off pretty much anything, and I almost have my threes down, just not quite. I got the rotation today, but I can't seem to keep my balance. I always land way back on my tails and kill my shins.
if you are landing to far backseat, try to go off the jumo forward, like reach for your boots or punch at the landing to throw yourself not backseat on your rotation. thats all i can help you with tho, if that doesnt help, your screwed in life.
"You retarded? The casg edit clearly says JACK BORLAND also who the fuck cares. There are really only 3 styles in the ski world these days: the max hill/ jossi tight pants leather jacket. The medium kinda Twall Thall and then The thugged out Bdog Edollo and the tricks that each do accordingly."
Not trying to thread jack.. but whenever I get to 180 i put my head totally down sending me way backseat or falling on my ass. I think it's because i'm trying to spot my landing through my armpit area. Even if i try to look up I normally look down even more. Any tips?
I lean a little forward with when I am approaching the lip of the jump and when I'm in the air I still try to press forward with my shins, it helps if you get used to the jumps and its landings. I try to get to the mountain really early and get like one of the first lifts so the park/jumps/landings/lips are prime, and then once you land it in that you have enough confidence to do it whenever you want. hope I helped and good luck!

I see a lot of people when they are just learning spins its like they wind up and close their eyes and just try to survive the trick. It sounds kind of weird but try to stay in the moment and think about what is going on throughout your rotation, spot your landing and keep your form. This will help you do them better.
Just practice, practice, practice, off anything you can, so long as you a get at least a solid second of hang time. Eventually they become second nature and very easy and simple. Bigger jumps just call for less pre-wind. Best single rotation tip I can give you is, set your axis around your belt buckle (center of mass).
i had the same exact problem... on this little like 5 ft jump i wuld try em on i wuld always come around and land backseat, and fall. but then i tried it on a like a 15 footer, nd they were sooo easy. i didnt even think about like trying to stay on axis or anything, i just looked over my shoulder nd it just came around to my feet. so i think u shuld go for it on bigger jumps... waayyy more easier
Whats happening is that you're probably dropping a shoulder by accident and whipping it around. Make sure you consciously lift both shoulders up equally and look over your shoulder and spot your landing right away.
