what your doing is spinning before you pop. Make sure you jump first, then rotate by bringing the handle in to your back hip.

assuming you are regular, when pulling the handle to your right hip, rotate it so your thumb is pointing downward, this will put you over your board and help you not to slide out.

Spot your landing then look for the shoreline.

Ride switch often.
Land on your toes and ride away on your toes.

Don't try to rush the 180 in the air, take it nice and slow. U should land with the board pointing as if you are going to cut out to the other side and make sure that you bend your knees alot when you land. Most people push out the tail of their board when first trying them because they are not taking it round far enough and landing on your TOESIDE edge.

Good luck, you will be stoked when you get it!
