    I've been trying that catch for weeks, sk8rat97. But the spin is too fast for me to follow, and the board seems to fly either too left, or too right (I'm regular). Right now, I'm trying to focus on keeping it low, controlled and centered. When I get used to it being centered, I think I'll try catching it then. Would that work?

    Yea they are a bitch to learn but once you start getting them they will become easy. Try different foot positions. Whenever i have periods where i can't do tres (they are really reaally annoying) its usually just because i forgot my usual foot placement so it wont flip all the way.If it goes too much left dont try scooping as much and if its to the right scoop the board in front of you so it makes a backwards L. You'll get it sooner or later though. Theres a few tricks i thought i'd never learn like bs tails and a few other ones but i eventually got them it just takes time. It took me about a year to get my tres good and thats after i could do them somewhat consistent. Its been about 2-3 years since i learned them and now i have them about every try. It might even be as simple as you just arent committing. I could try to make a tricktip for you tomorrow if i go to my friends or if i don't i can make a shitty one at home.

    Thanks. It would really help. It would probably help others who are trying to learn too.

    Once I get this thing, I'm gonna make a trick tip myself. :)

Hope this helps
    This is exactly what I'm starting to get into. I noticed earlier in the year, I was trying to do everything perfectly and not getting anything. So...

    ... I started to recently not caring where the board goes as long as it flipped correctly and I was comfortable before popping. Then I got into committing to landing wherever the hell the board went. Now, I can sometimes throw the board where it's supposed to go AND catch it.

    But yeah, I think my problem was trying to get everything at once instead of learning in steps.

    Found out that keeping my weight centered keeps my board centered. Still having trouble catching the board coz it pops too high. Decreasing the pop doesn't let it complete the spin. :(

    The part about getting your deck seemingly already 90 degrees before flicking seems to help me a lot with consistency. It also helps tone down the power level of the scoop so that I'm not all worn out after a couple of tries. So yeah, it's one of the better Braille 360 flip supports.

    Just mess around with your foot positioning. If its popping too high maybe just jump higher or you could move your foot more up and your back toes more off the board to be able to scoop more since your having trouble getting the scoop.

    This trick tip applies to any trick , you need to do the trick while bending , DONT jump then do the trick , dont even jump at all , just bend pop and flick , (if your regular) you want your back foot placed on the right edge of the tail and when your starting to learn this trick have your front foot near you back foot , dont scoop just pop your tail at a specific point on the ground instead of just scooping it , as in you want to pop your tail at a 30-40 degree angle on the floor , add a very light small flick , and you should land it , practice makes perfect :D

    Practice doing them moving, start slow, then faster and faster. I notice the board tends to go to your right. I had the same problem for the LONGEST time and it was the only reason I couldn't land them. You have to try to lean a little more towards the tail to center it.

    i found that doing 360 shuvits helped ALOT when i had problems with the rotation of tres. Kinda makes your feet be like....oh...it spins that easy.... Have to remeber to put more weight on your back foot to prevent these from flying behind you. Impossibles require same thing but in a bit different way. Have to like scoop it ahead of you.
