Whenever i try to 180 my right foot slips off, but i still get the full rotation and start rolling back but the only thing stopping me is that foot. I spin to the left.

by the sound of it man your having problems balancing in the landing, try to land straight up and down both wheels at the same time, else tuck your right foot in a little tighter when practicing. are you trying it on the flat or off a ramp?

lean to the opposite side ur foot is coming off
so if ur right leg is always slipping off then lean to the left if ur left foot slips off lean right


it takes practice but 180s are very versital tricks

if you've got the carve and the spin down, id say just lean away from ya slipping foot when ya land, and keep practicing dude. it takes a lil while to get.
