Best tip I can give you is to look at your hub throughout the spin. If you look at your hub, you will turn your shoulders and will then turn your hips, the bike will follow your hips.

THX is next generation surround sound, developed by a George Lucas company not an acceptable substitute for the word "thanks". Read the guidelines

If he is really on your ignore list, why do you respond to his post with this almost every time?

If you have 180 down you should easily be able to get a 3. Look at what you are doing when you 180 and amplify that until you get 360.

I think I learned 360 before 180... I suck at riding fakie.
