Lightbulb Help! Please... 360 unispin

I know there is a lot of threads about unispins.. But so far, None of them has helped me out.

I wondered if anyone could give me some tips, what am I doing wrong? I filmed a few unispins. I know I`m holding the seat in a n00by way (One hand at the top, and one back at the bumper), but if I try to have both my hands on the middle, I can`t even spin it anymore then 180. I actually land with my right feet on the crank pretty often. But I never land with my left one.

I jump with my right feet behind, and my left feet.. yeah, you know.. in the front.

Anyways, Here is the vid, I hope someone can tell me what I do wrong, I really wanna land it soon. Or maybe I just need to practise more.

I can easily do a 180 unispin, But if I hold in that way, I can`t spin 360.

I recommend you learn 360 jump mounts, to seat in.

At the moment, you're not jumping high enough and you're actually jumping backwards away from the uni and leaving it in front of you.

360 jump mounts will help you get the hang of the hand movement. Also practice just spinning the uni while you stand there, use your right hand to catch the spin as early as possible.

Just put both off your hands at the same side of the sadle, and jump high enough, spin and put your legs far away from the unicycle.
And then pull back your feet towards the uni, aiming on the cranks at first.
Then when you get the hang of it, aim for the pedals only.
All the help I can give you mate.

I know I can do it...i just can't commit myself to landing it for some reason. I need to try the 360 mount to seat in...i think my seat is too high.
