well, first i had to get 180's dialed on flat, then i got in a bowl and did like this 180 pivit deal, like i'd go up the slope but instead of doin a 180 in the direction i was goin, i would spin the oposite way and land on my back tire and spin around a lil, witch got me comfortable piviting, but it wasn't a full 360 pivit. then i went to flat and worked on 360 pivits, which is a over rotated 180 and land on back tire then pivit to get the full 360, in case you didn't know. and i finally got them!

Yeah I know what a pivot is. Are you sucking up your back legs a lot?

but i think the bigest thing is jus stayin centered over your bike. i would lean to the side a lot for some reason and it would fuck me up every time. and practice a lot.

yeah, once you get the bike up there spining, you have to comit and keep that back end up, i had problems with putting my back end down to soon, jus tuck it up and spin hard as hell.
