Fuller twice failed to land properly after trying a double backflip, with her first attempt a particularly nasty-looking fall.
But the 22-year-old admitted she was determined not to hold back and has no regrets.
"I laid all my cards down on the table, went for it, didn't quite work out today but I thought I might as well go big or go home," she said.
"After all it's the Olympics, the biggest contest on earth, so I'm pleased I went for it really.
"I'm going to walk away happy and have enjoyed my Olympic experience so far."
British snowboarder Jenny Jones, however, made it into the slopestyle final. Jones' first score of 82.25 was enough to see her seal a top-four finish in the semi-final that was needed to advance to Sunday afternoon's showpiece event.
She then bettered her first score by a point to finish third and raise hopes of Team GB earning their first medal on day two in Sochi.
Jones went on to pick up a bronze in the final to become Britain's earliest medal in a winter games and the country's first on snow.
