Over rotated 360? /backseat
Am I sitting too far backseat or should I have kept rotating to the 540 and not bailed. This was my first 360 on a larger jump.. The times after I landed the 360 somewhat. Let me know what can help me. Thanks!
kinda hard to judge your skiing with a video
Is the video working now?

Well it's hard to tell but, you need to put forward pressure on your shins and pop off the lip. That's the biggest thing with 3's, you have to pop. You probably did have enough air for a 540 though.
I still have not perfected my 3 but by the looks of it you need to have your weight foward on the takeoff. Press your shins into the tongues of your boots, also pop straight up and make sure your not looking down at the jump when you reach a 180. Keep that head level.
Forward pressure and lead with your head and shoulders, follow with your legs
when i was learning, i found that having a little bit of a wider stance on the take off prevented me from going back seat. I also noticed that i would rush to see the lander come around. This made me look down during the spin, causing me to fall back seat
Like what others are saying, also try to bring up your knees to absorb it. I might get flak for this but what helped me to learn is to also look slightly down as you bring it past 180.
