I can land 180's now and whenever i try to go for a 360 i can only get half way around. Any suggestions on how to get more spin.

tie a rope to a tree with a handle and practice on a trampoline. if you dotn habve a trampoline just do it on the ground thats what i did.

Make sure your spinning the right direction also.

im assuming you're talking about a hs fs 3... <BR> <BR>two things: <BR> <BR>1) make sure you go up first before you spin (get your height) <BR> <BR>2) pull yourself to the handle. i used to do my hs fs 3s with my hand waaay out there - i could get the 2/3's or so and then i'd just land on my ass. if you don't pull the handle in there's no way you'll get the handle pass, which makes it really difficult to complete the trick. <BR> <BR>like others have said, it's good to practice. either on the ground or on a trampoline. <BR> <BR>when practicing on ground or tramp, don't forget to concentrate on pulling the handle in and advancing your body forward. i first practiced them on the ground AND on a trampoline, but didn't think about pulling myself towards the handle - and it didn't make much difference. then i went back to the trampoline and concentrated on pulling my body towards the handle, and the next time out i got it. <BR> <BR>it's easy to do them on the ground w/o advancing, but that's what it's like behind the boat as it's always pulling you forward. if you concentrate on this aspect of the pass you'll find it a lot easier behind the boat. <BR> <BR>so... <BR> <BR>1) make sure you get your height first - just like a 180, don't try spining before you leave the wake. <BR> <BR>2) pull your body to the handle - this makes getting the handle, and thus the rest of the rotation, much easier. <BR> <BR>good luck! <BR> <BR>

Chris, <BR> <BR>You always give the best explanations - you really spend a lot of time on them. Thanks - I am working my 360's also and will try that this afternoon.

On the 3's get your wrist past your spine before making the pass. If you do not get your hand into the small of your back and on the other side of your body, you will wind up pulling yourself back the direction you came. <BR>try landing some blind 180's without passing the handle to get the feel of proper handle positioning.

Everything above plus <BR> <BR>pull with both hands <BR>&amp; look in the direction you will be spinning.
