It's always hard to define the level. This one is called Super Beginner just because the one called Beginner have pretty advanced tricks
NotSoYoungOne don't give up that early. Maybe next trick will be easier for you. It takes at least three rounds to be OUT of this game And by the way there are probably quite a lot of people who can hop and ride well, but still cannot idle
After a few days of almost spring we got a snowfall today so we'll see how it will be with my training. Hope to get it by sunday anyway.

I know. The learning curve is so high for these games. It has been a year, and I'm finally a super beginner. My problem is that I've never learned a new trick in a week. If someone sets a trick I can't already do, I'm in trouble.

Kick up mount is actually not hard, it looks hard though. And it doesn't have to be a kick-up, he said just do a mount other than a normal mount, something creative.

I've been able to ride for probably a little over a week now, and when he posted the trick on Sunday, I landed it a couple times on Monday. It's not that hard of a trick. What I did to learn was i got right in front of this 2-pole structure thing in my house(anything to hold onto would work) and got the unicycle in the kick up position, then grabbed the thing with both my hands, and tried to do it. It took a while, but eventually I could do it while holding on with both hands. Then I took one hand off which, naturally, made it harder, and practiced like that. I actually went to trying it without holding on at all before I could do it solidly every time with one hand. I landed it a few times Monday, but now I can do it almost every time.

Haha this is why I waited until someone else posted something, so I wouldn't have to set. I don't know any tricks at all. Haha. Besides regular hopping and a small drop I have in my house.

Hope it helps!

Lol, for me the mount seems easier than the "Hop for 30 seconds withput falling" trick, i suck at maintaining balance when jumping.

I can't believe there were not a super begginer game before this thread. The learning curve of people who are super begginer is really fast. With a lot of practice and having fun while ridding any of us can progress to begginer/medium in a blink of an eye

I was trying the kick up mount yesterday and i landed it just once on like 30 attempts, today got like 5 in 20 attempts. Is not that hard at all, Im working hard on that mount to upload the video before sunday

You're right. I had never really tried hard to learn it until tonight. It only took about 20 minutes.

I can't believe there were not a super begginer game before this thread.
There were some... there was another thread which featured at least one full game, then we had a couple of rounds ended by winter coming in.

I've got it yesterday, but it was too dark for my camera to record anything so I've got it again today. Wasn't that easy to do it again even if I landed it 5 times in a row yesterday.

and as for joining. Everybody can join up to round 3. Just the latecomers get the letter for the rounds they missed.

Nice job man! Looks nice where you live.

I was going to do a vid the other day when I had the whole day off, but I woke up with my back all crooked and couldn't ride all day! I should be back later, if not then tomorrow I will get one up. That is a promise.
