I have to say even as a total beginner that 180 degree turns, maybe a little more than than just to stay behind the landing zone not only keeps you into the wind (and those over 180 degree turns are necessary to stay out of the hang glider landing zone). I have been warned about 360 degree turns on landing. It’s obvious now. those figure 8’s can lead to not seeing an approaching hang glider or even an approaching paraglider. It’s essential to definitely see other gliders on final approach.
