I wouldn't mind a brief explanation of what I should be doing for a "super beginner" thread. When I joined the original super beginner game I was well and truly a newbie...from competing with everyone over there I feel that I'm verging on becoming a beginner-intermediate rider and don't want to set a trick that is too hard.

I'm not trying to say I'm better than everyone else, I just want to make this as fun as possible

From what I have seen for these games is it kind of progresses in levels, 2 or 3 tricks, then it kicks up a notch, a few more tricks then it gets harder again, etc , etc. This gives all levels a chance to play. The first time I played one of these it progressed too fast and wasn't at all fun for me.

I think the first few tricks should be at a level where someone who has been riding less than 6 months could do ?

Then we'll just ease in to the harder stuff. Kind of have to play it by ear, and see who is going to stick around and keep playing.

Sound o.k. ?

That's a good way of looking at it, I'll just hold tight and see where this goes

Also, I'll probably go and film the stairs today.
