    To do a frontside 180 we need to sit up with the front foot like a normal ollie and the back foot is a bit one on the edge of the tail

    Turn the shoulders, and throw our arms when we pop the ollie

    We are going to 180 and land and switch
    .
    A lot of times people have problems with frontside 180, is when they land and the skateboards shoots out from under them. This is because their body weight isn't positioned the way it should be. It is either too far backwards or too far forwards.

    Backside 180s are a lot like frontside 180s except we are spinning in the opposite direction
    .
    For the backside 180 we want to put our toes a lot more over on the tail so we can get the proper spin. We are going to wind the shoulders up in the opposite direction.

    A lot of the time, people that try to learn backside 180s they don't get the proper spin and the board either shoots out in front of them or to the back of them
    .
    That's because their body weight isn't positioned properly. We want to be straight over the skateboard. We don't want to be leaning forward or backward. Just want to be straight up and down.
