Street 360s

I learned 3s at this park at the end of last year and I had them down pretty good. I was riding street and saw this 3 foot ledge and I started doing 180s, x-ups, and tabletops of it. But then when I tried(for the first time) to 3 it I ended up getting almost full rotation but my front tire was a lot higher than my rear and I some how ended up tiped way to the side so I slid out. Do you have any suggestions on how to keep from tipping to the side when I try to spin 360 of a ledge?

I don't try and lean to the side, but when I lift upto the side it just ends up that way. Maybe I should try it off something taller so I don't have to lift up and turn as fast.

try this
instead of looking over your sholder when you spin try spinning toward your rear axel
also go faster and spin harder

Well, here in Rosemount MN last night we just got about 4.5" of snow. So when it's all melted i'll go give it another go. Thanks for your ideas.

That sucks, but no matter how many feet of snow you get you can allways go ride on mainstreet(or any driveway you shovel ). 1-2 days after it snows you can allways go ride there.
