Time to enter the realm of proper full rotations. Back 3s are actually sometimes easier than backside 180s because you can spot the landing. This is one of the easiest and safest tricks to learn, so don’t hesitate and get practicing.
1) Approach the jump with weight low and centred. Make a gentle S-curve before you hit the knuckle, so you naturally come in on your toe edge.
2) Drive your lead shoulder towards your back foot as you ride off the lip and extend your legs at the last minute to get that pop.
3) Keep turning your head and shoulders in the direction of the rotation – and the board will follow. It takes commitment, but trust us! This trick looks great with a tail-grab (as shown here) but works equally well with an indy or a mute.
4) Soon the landing will come into view. Straighten up and land with a flat base in normal stance. Sweet!
