All of the 180 question explanations are not that good. Can someone please tell me how to rotate and/or a way to practice this without a bike so i can practice it after it gets dark and chilly. I know you are supposed to huck the bars, turn your head and go for it, but its not happening. I am also committed and not pussing out.

Huck the bars? No. Hop, turn your head the way you rotate, and keep trying. You can turn into them a little too if it helps.

If you land and your POV is not 180 from your starting point, you're not doing it right.

Carve some, pull up towards the direction you're spinning, turn your head, tuck legs up, land, roll out. I started out doing the little two wheel hops and just kept trying to spin further and further. after a day of practice i got comfortable with the 180 motion and i was getting pretty close to landing them. Then i just started cleaning them up by tucking my legs up to get them higher and fully rotated. This probably sounds like alot of nonsense bullshit but breaking stuff down always helps me out. Now i can do them with little effort.

Dont listen to the other guys. what you need to do is when you first learn to spin carve into the quater pipe and look over your shoulder (if you spin right look over your right shoulder etc..) and just keep trying. you will get it soon enough

Wow you dumbass I was being serious with that tip. Its an obvious thing but so many noobs over look it. If your head is not 180 from your starting point it's because you're actually not committing. You might think you are but you're not. Turn your head and your shoulders more.

I'm working on 180s as well (actually, go ahead and laugh, foot-jam 180s) and I keep reading that you need to turn your head. I was doing that but one thing I discovered that is quite helpful is you need to keep your head up as well. Make sure you are keep your eyes forward, not on the ground. Once I started turning my head while keeping my eyes up and looking forward rather than down at my feet, I started to make much more progress.

I started by just turning 90 degrees until I got comfortable with it then I started putting more effort into the spin. I still dont land them clean every time but I continue to practice. Not much anyone can tell u except turn ur upper body and fully commit to the spin. Practice as much as u can.

sometimes it helps out if you try it out of a fly out or a ditch , it gives you more time to rotate and land
