Not to take anything away from Danny's riding - the guy's an incredible rider - but "how tos" are basically always the same:
1. go along at the right speed to do a <trick>
2. do a <trick>
3. land <trick>
4. ride away

Very informative.

The thing that I find confusing about 360s is how you start turning before you take off but still fly in the right direction after take off. Some kind of witchcraft if you ask me.

It is a bit like that Monty Python skit . Next we'll learn how to play the flute. Well you blow in this end and move your fingers on these holes. Neat! Swell!

He should just say - watch me do this and then go practice relentlessly til you can do the same. Learning tricks is 2% know-how and 98% practice.

Think of it more like carving into the take off instead of turning. Come into it from the opposite direction a bit so that by the time you carve a few degrees you're pointed straight ahead.
