practice alot. I got mine Sunday

I found that you have to be able to catch it or else you won't land very well.

Nice, now you have to try landing another. It took me a while just to get my second.

I spent a few days perfecting the motion of the hands. Then I progressed onto doing the 360 mount to build up some courage. After I could get that consistent, i just went for it.

It helps a lot being able to spin it consistently so you don't have to focus on that part of the spin.

Here is a vid of a tutorial that really helped me.

I'm getting quite tired of trying 2 land 3spins. The best i have dun is landed on the crank with my left foot and on the wheel with my right. My problem is i can spin the uni really fast, fast enough, but i am struggling to jump any higher than when i do 1spins. does any one have any techniques in jumping higher.

How do you hold your hands when you spin it?

Same thing was happening to me when I was learning. Before I landed it I didn't have very many attempts that were even close. My problem was with commitment though. Sounds like you're pretty close to landing it. Don't give up yet.

Practice jumping higher for 180 unispins. It may kind of feel like your pushing the seat down to get yourself higher.
