It is hard to tell. I wouldn't put myself in the super beginner category, but the beginner category on here is way too advanced in my opinion. I do need to learn some basic tricks, so this will be great. I will let the anyone start. If someone hasn't posted by Sunday, I will. However, they are expecting rain here all weekend.

I'd be up for this, I am missing some basic skills like idling well, 1 foot riding, 1ft idling, tight figure-eights.

Trick: The kick up or any other creative way of getting on the unicycle and riding. You can use your hands and hold onto the unicycle. You can run and jump on. It just has to be something different than the usual way of getting on and riding. Show us what you've got!

great I've always wanted to learn kickup mount. Pity I've just came back from small practise. Then the training will wait for tommorow
Is the deadline the same time Sunday next week?

Here's a 180 jump mount. I'm trying the night vision setting on my camera.

When I saw "super beginner" I thought that described me pretty well. But the first trick being a kick up mount is a looooong way off. So I guess that would make me a mega-ultra-super beginner I am at least a year from OUT The Game, even at the super beginner level.
Nice mount though headcamguy! And the other stuff you did was very cool too. I have never put my saddle that low before - wonder if I could even ride at all??

What do "hop for 30 seconds without falling" or "hop up 6 inches" or "idle 5 times" or "3 tight figure 8's in a row" count as? (these are the kind of things I could try with some chance of success!) I guess these are just basic riding skills and not yet in the realm of tricks. I really am a long way from OUT The Game! Oh well. I will check back often and see everyone's progress. It will be a good motivator! I have seen the kickup mount a few times but still don't get how to do it so I will watch these videos several times to see if I can figure it out. I really like the repetition and the angles on Hack's video - Thanks!
