I have been trying to 180 for a month now. I can do them when i ramp off of a bank and land it perfectly but when i do it off of a curb or flat, my right foot always wants to come off. What am i doing wrong?! How can i fix it?

If your foot is coming off you're most likely just not fully committed to the trick. Just keep practicing.

Boldly going nowhere.

BIKE CHECK.

Ya its most likely a commitment thing. Or that your not centered when rotating. If you could get a video that would give us more info

i dont recomend this for you, but when my friends dont commit, i duct tape theyre feet on. one asked me to duct tape his foot for catching tailwhips, i asked him how he would start the whip. it was funny as hell

Yeah i was actually thinking of doing that but i thought i was just going to eat shit and that my foot will just get used to being tightend against my pedal

That. The way you're postured makes it look like you don't want to 180. Like if you're hesitant to land backwards. You HAVE TO WANT to land backwards. Get in your mind that you want to land fakie. Don't over think it. Your new goal is to land fakie and roll back like the muthu fuggin boss. Dot it!!! aarargg!

You're giving too much carve and not enough hop. Remember, you still need to get off the ground. What i do with my 180s is carve a little, then pull up as if i'm just hopping over something about 6+ inches high. Also, with all spinning tricks, the trick is to turn your head. Wherever you turn your head, your body will follow. Lastly, try to tuck up your back end a little, its a hard trick to get comfortable with but its a building block for so many more. Good luck!
