I've read about trying a board grab then spinning, but haven't tried that yet. Everyone says pop then spin. That's what i'm trying to do, haha, but not working so far.
See my comments above, some of this may help you. I would not suggest grabbing if you cant land a bare 3, this might help you spin at the peak, but it can stall you out. 360s are not progressive cuts into the wake, slower approach, just enough to clear the wake, and ollie off the wake to give you a floaty pop with no line tension. Spin at the peak, and be sure you're not heel or back foot heavy off the wake, this causes off axis.

I wakeboarded late yesterday for the first time in three years and damn it was fun. But I am sore.

My bag of tricks is as empty as a magicians hat with a hole in it but I enjoy going W2W 80ft behind my 205v

I'm getting inside out blind 180s now, but haven't gotten wake to wake. I've been doing 18 mph and short rope, and the line tension has been my issue. I'm going to focus on a good ollie pop next time to get rid of the tension and hopefully get it.
