What’s up guys? This is Kevin from
SnowboardProCamp.com. In this video I’m gonna show you the
very first thing you want to try when learning how to spin 180’s. Before
you 180 off a jump you want to first practice on the flat
ground. This way you can get used to spinning 180’s and be comfortable doing them before you
get to the jump. There are three parts to doing 180’s on the ground. The first part is getting onto the
edge of your snowboard to give yourself a platform to spin from.
Set yourself up on your toe edge for backside 180’s and heel edge for frontside 180’s. The second part is jumping to give
yourself time in the air to get the 180 around. Bend your
knees and try to keep your back straight so you can jump straight into the air. Make
sure you jump even of both feet. This will keep your snowboard level in
the air. The third thing is to wind up your body
so you can get the 180 around. For backside 180’s winding up facing
forward, then rotating your body backwards. For frontside 180’s winding up
backwards then rotate your body forward. An easy way to remember which way to
wind up is to remember that you want the front
of your snowboard to always spin up hill. Practice doing 180’s on the flat
ground until you really have them dialed. Focus on the three parts that complete the
180. Creating a platform with your edge to spin from, jumping even of both feet to give
yourself time in the air, and winding up to get the 180 around. If you have any questions about 180’s, you can leave them in the comment box. Subscribe to check out upcoming videos.
