    Wind yourself up alot, and look were you are spinning. Try to keep your body verticle, and pop as high as you can. How are you bailing? Underspin? Falling back/forward? Tipping?

    This is what I do (can't do them yet but getting there)...if you can bunny-hop try to practice doing a 360 or as far as you can in one hop. I can get like 135 on flat ground and off a jump now I can almost get the full thing. Thats how I started to learn hopefully it'll help.

    PS once you get it get lots of PICS!

    Look at your rear hub. That is all I have to say, Ican't get them but that one piece of advice helped me in getting them further. By looking at your hub, you turn your whole body.
