I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this question, so I apologize in advance, if I've posted in the wrong section of the forum.I would like to learn a 360 this season. I tried it a few times last year and came close a couple of times but never landed it. My problem as I understand it is stopping the rotation half-way, at 180. I can land 180 but not 360. A couple of people suggested spotting my landing on the way around, but I think this is actually contributing to my difficulty. I think it actually stops my rotation because I look down and try to find the snow. I was also told that leaving my legs dangling straight below me, "old-school" is preferred to tucking them on the rotation. This doesn't seem to feel right. It feels as though when I'm not compressed, my rotation slows. Also, I need to work on my timing. I was told that I need to start my spin the instant my boots leave the jump. When I watch other skiers spin it looks as though they actually begin the rotation on the snow. Not sure if my impressions are correct or if I'm missing something.
