having trouble hopping

well so i can hop about like pogo stick stylee but i am having real trouble jumping high. i cant quite get it. any other tips i could get. not sure what im doing wrong

sounds like you might want to work on your regular hopping a little first. Try hopping and then doing a short still stand (at first it will be very short but youll get better at it and it will be longer) and then repeat. Putting a still stand between each hop well keep you more controlled. You could also try hoppping in circles for gaining more control.

If you can already do everything up there fine, try prehopping to get higher. To do this hop next to something and instead of just bouncing up, do a short still stand and jump sideways and push down hard to compress the tire and then spring up. It usually gives you a few extra inches. You could try learning to hop seat out too.

There isn’t any advice that will make you instantly hop high. It takes alot of pratice.

i concur. find a curb to hop up on and do it 52 times. find a two step and rolling hop it 57 times. find a 3 step and rolling hop it 69 times. on your 70th time hopping up the 3 -step, you’ll be ready to try sif. pull the seat out in front of you and support it with your thighs and practice hopping up a curb, then 2 step, 3 step… by the time you can rolling hop sif up an 8-set, you should be preparing to take over the world with mad uni skills. hopping is like riding, it only takes about 30-50 tries to get proficient at it. i picked up hopping by riding everyday for 2 years and hopping every curb in my way.
(i hope something i wrote made sense.)
