JemsMy first 360 was an accident, but my first intentional ones took me a few tries.
nmwninjartShould you have 180s down before trying 360s? ( I'm working on 180s now and want to get 360 soon)
theabortionatorProbably dozens of tries to get it clean. 180 to 360 is the hardest transition followed by 3 to 5. Getting good at 80s almost puts you at a disadvantage to learning 3s. You get so used to spotting the landing and popping the 180. You never have to spin properly.
Def a great feeliing to get those first clean 3's. That said even the 270s where you're sliding it around are a decent tool to learning.
NarcopusI can’t speak for 1 to 3 cause I did 3s first, but 3 to 5 was the easiest thing ever, just spin a little harder and you’re there. Got it second try when I couldn’t even consistently do 3s or land switch well
TheMailManNot sure if that's a serious comment but my literally took like 2 years. I've always had a constant (mental) battle with them after breaking my collar bone in France a couple of years ago trying a 360.
Nowadays I can land them pretty confidently anywhere on the mountain (of side hits, cat tracks etc) and up to the medium kickers in the park, just with 0 style. Trying to work on getting a tail grab in at the moment but I'm still nowhere near. I think I gotta grow some balls and step up to the large kickers so I've got more time to grab.
