Ok so i've had 180s pretty dialed for about 2 weeks. But over the course of the last week i've started to carve into them more and more and not landing them (maybe it's just when im tired, but i feel fine). Anyway how to i fix this problem of carving too much, I can normally do them fine with a slight carve, but something just feels off and i seem to have become inconsistent /:

How much do you guys carve? Do you start to carve when you get tired? Help me fix this.

Do you turn your shoulders when you rotate? That helps. Also, suck up your back end if you want to jump high.

Oh bro i think that's it! I always focus on turning my head, not my shoulders.

You can still land them with the carve, you just have to rotate your backend a little more to make up for it. I naturally started carving less and less as i did them more, now i don't even have to think about it or even give much effort into a 180.

You don't want to carve at all with 180s, if you get in that habit youl never be able to 180 at high speed or figure out how to properly air high on quarters
