Default Trick Tutorial: the helicopter

1. approach speed with knees bent, athletic stance
2. wind your hips, shoulder, and arms - more windup= easier, but less steeze
3. pop off the lift and turn your head the direction you want to spin
4. spot the landing right after 180
5. stomp the landing and ride away clean
6. claim it

Default Landing off centre on a 360

Why is it, during a 360, half the time I hit the landing leaning 20 degrees to the right. Half the time I land it, and half the time leaning on landing and end up on my right thigh and hip. I usually land the first three or four. Mess up the next five. Do a straight air to recage, then land them fine again for a while. When screwing up am I turning to hard? Are my hands not far enough forward? What do you think?
