It's because you're not getting the full rotation. Keep practicing and you'll get it. The same thing happened when I started 180s. I always thought I was getting the full rotation until I videod myself. Keep practicing getting further around, and also go a bit faster and make sure your weight is more over your rear hub. It won't come over night, but you'll get it.

Ur most likely keeping too much weight on the front end when u land. as ur about to land get ur ass over the back wheel and prepare to be moving backwards. same thing happened to me when i was learning but now i get them

Ok, thank you both! As soon as my new stem comes in I'll go out and try it again!

try 180ing into a driveway decline it will let you know what your doing wrong and give you more momentum even if your going slow

Look over youre shoulder and make sure youre getting the full 180. RELAX.... and try siting down on youre seat.
