So i was trying to 540 a 5 stair and couldnt get past a 360 before hitting the ground. Prolly a dumb question but wouldnt it be much easier trying off a high ass ledge rather then a stair sey with a small drop? Or am i not spinning hard enough?

Well the most i can do is 540 on a mellow bank. Mostly because if i land it, i cant fakie it. Working on it. But yeah, its simpler to do it off a ledge, mostly because there is less worry about clipping something. and yes, spin harder. You gotta really freaking look HARD to get that thing to spin.dont carve too much or it wont work, carve a lot, no more than 60 or 70 degees, then freakin pull the bars close to you and push out at around 270, makes it land cleaner and helps with the spin. Just dont forget, this sort of thing is really sketchy off stairs, and be sure you can spin a 540 off a jump or a curb or something you wont get mangled on!! And always be ready to fakie at the end. The part i can grasp at the moment, but if you arent scared to pull it off stairs and such, go for it. Be careful man!

Jut turn your head over your shoulder further than humanly possible. and tuck a lot. here's an old video of o.e of mine idk if its legit or not. i can do them better on better banks but that one was almost flat. but i think drops would be a lot nicer to learn tgem on than stairs. tricks down stairs scare me.

ok..here is the thing...for flyout, dip your 360 abit, and when you get close to 340, pullup and yank hard to try and get that extra 180...on a bank start by carving hard, and just practice..

I never tried 540s off stairs.
Only landed them on quarters/pipes, way easier and if you bail you can't fuck up that bad, I only got a peg to my leg once and couldn't really walk at first but nothing too serious.

i'm having trouble with 540 but here are some advices, if you wanna try them off a ledge, don't carve too much, or you will completely lose the control of the bike and will make it 100x harder to land it, you have to pull a lot without carving too much, and put your bars as close as you can to you. dont try them down stairs before you can do it off a ledge because you will surely crash as you have to go faster to clear the stair set. the best way to learn 540 is out of banks, that way you get the rotation, don't learn them out of a quarter pipe and expect to be able to do it easily off ledges, because it's completely different. here is a video of how i was able to land them out of a steep bank, it was in summer, and i could only land them that day. http://instagram.com/p/eab52JNMLn/ this is what happens when you carve too much, it's harder to stabilize the bike http://instagram.com/p/gjNBBgAuY0/
just keep trying it out of banks and then you will know how to spin properly
