    Most people I know feel backside spins are are easier to learn cause you can spot you landings. Well a full 360 spin you can spot your landing. A FS 360 you are blind to you landing. I learned BS 3's before FS 3's

    last time i checked you don't spin backside off your heels unless ur doing a bs rodeo.

    unless of course you spin really awkwardly

    backside spins are initiated off the toes
    frontside spins are intiated off the heels, but can be done off the toes also

    i find that beginners usually feel more comfortable spinning frontside, as they can see where they are going as they leave the jump, which feels safer.

    i think when you're first starting out, backsides are way easier. once you get more comfortable in the air and rotating, and you actually start to understand the mechanics of spinning though, frontsides are so much easier!

    Frontside is easier for me. Backside is more difficult
