If your talking about doing them on quarter pipes... I learned on a vert wall, I had 360 hops dialed. Then its just a matter of taking it to the quarter pipe, I did them about 4 or 5 feet up the wall, spun as fast as I could then landed fakie and rolled out. Of course it took a while to get it dialed, but its kind of a hit or miss trick, you just have to go for it. After getting those dialed, 540's are just a matter of going a little faster and spinning a little faster.
