im new to this website and to bmx, i just started getting 180s like month ago i can already slide out. When do you think i should start 360s and should i learn 3-taps, and what are some methods that helped you learn 360s and master 180 like getting them higher.

its never too early to learn 3z, just make sure you have your 180s on point, all you really need to do is hop and turn your head harder. try and look through your armpit and just hold it. it takes a long time to get perfect to tap 3z but practice makes perfect.

I think the key is to not learn 3taps, but do 360s that you end up tapping because you still need more practice.

^ What he said I learned 3 taps before I could 360 and it got me more into the habit of dropping my back end too early and when your learning 3's what helped for me is having my 180's pretty dialed then just going a little faster than I would for a 180 and carving into it more because the faster you go the easier it is to do them as long as you don't go fast enough to sketch yourself out

Probablly but I haven't been able to get 3's on steep banks either I just never seem to tuck my front in enough to land them right
