i have really been working on the si hops! im trying to get to 30 inches, but i want to be able to get 29" 100 out of 100 times before i move on. im still having slight confidence issues with si hops…i can really only consistently hop every other day…as of now :).
yeah i can feel how much easier standstills are when not on the skinny and having both arms flailing. im still pretty new to riding skinnies though, and i don’t have the confidence yet to take my hand off the handle…i always feel like ill be in absolutely no control if the uni slips out from underneath me. yesterday I did attempt to ride it with 2 hands, but as soon as id take the hand off the handle and just put it right back on and leap off the side.
it will come in time i just gotta get more confidence…
i started riding 3 years ago…wasnt really serious about it and took a 1.5 year break after some back problems. In Feb 2009 i started gettin serious about trials.
aight ive tried for about 10+ hrs now trying to ride the skinny with 2 hands out. I just cant do it for some reason. I get half a rev. im just too used to holdin the handle. im too scared of the uni droppin out from underneath me and then me crashing badly.
should i really keep trying with 2 hands? will it benefit me thattt much? cause right now im pretty consistent with skinny riding with 1 hand on the handle and 1 hand in the air
