Why do I spin part of my spin corked?
I have just started trying some spins off of a smaller jump, I can get to about 270 but then i spin the last 90 degrees corked. Anyone know why?
probably looking down just turn your head to the right or left depending on which way you spin and you should be fun, if not that your probably leaning backwards or something.
try popping off the jump a little more once u get the hang of it
you probably aren't committing to it. keep your weight over your skis and keep your head up, and you will do fine
a good friend will bail you out of jail, a best friend is the guy sitting next to you saying, "damn that was fun"
Dude I used to do the same thing. It pissed me off to no end. Keep a level head.
keep it steezy
pop than spin with keeping your head up

Everyone does this when they're learning threes. Look over your shoulder instead of under it, pop harder, and practice makes perfect!

i did this a lot to but just lean on your shins when you go off the jump and pop a hard and look over your shoulder but not down over it and don't rush the spin
Awesome, Thanks! this should help me out i think the problem was keeping my head level
This ones for satan!

I can almost guarantee this is your problem: you spin your body around 180 before you even leave the lip. Pop, then spin. This should solve your problem. When you spin, pretend like you're punching somebody that's at your shoulder height with your right arm if you spin left.

As long as that feeling's there, you're gonna keep coming back every year until you get that feeling and more.
