Plz Help Me Learn Street Tricks!!!

yea i really really really want to learn street moves like spins, and be able to grind, stall, and jump realy high so plz help

try to be more specific. what problem are you having with these tricks (dont say you just cant do them, try to figure out why you cant do them or what part of it you are having trouble with, and then i might be able to help).

well i can ride perfect and everything but for hopping wise i can only bunny hop like 4-8 inchs and i would love to jump really high plus for spins i can like be rideing and push of a wall or something and do a 720 and keep ridening but i cant jump off the ground and do anythingmore then a 90 degree turn in the air… and i havent tried grinding or stalling cause i can never jump high enough to get onto anything

learn to hop higher…

alright, the main thing you should work on is getting control with your hops and hop height. here are some things you can try.

-hop in place in a circle (turning about 45-90 degrees for each hop), clockwise and counterclockwise

  • to hop higher, learn to hop seat out. first become very comfortable riding with the seat out in front, this will help you gain more control
    -try compressing the tire when you hop to get an extra few inches
    -stillstands are good practice, or try hopping, then do a short still stand and then hop again, and repeat this
    -hop on uneven surfaces (rocks, driveways)
    -try rolling hops, after you can 180 stationary, try them rolling too

All these things will help you gain more control over the uni and to hop higher. Practicing though is the most important thing do to. Alot of hopping is figuring out new balances that your body is not used to doing.

When you have gotten better at hopping, learn to crank stall. Just hop on to an object and land with your crank on it, then hop off. later you can learn to go to rubber and do a crank grab.

To grind, all you do is a rolling hop and land on your crank/or pedal (try not to land on your bearing though)

Hope this helps.


skate4flip ur post was utterly usless

plz help people

did you even read my post?

I explained alot of things that will help you learn to spin better. I talked about learning to grind and crank grab.

Hopping high and spins, is not something that you can just do in 1 day or even a week. It takes alot of practice. For example, i understand how someone like ryan atkins hops so high but that doesnt mean i can do it. Im sure he practiced alot before he could as high as he can now. Alot of learning the trick is figuring it out the balancing and what not. There have been many many threads on technique for hopping seat out, and rolling hops. Use the search and you can find alot stuff. I was just posting a few tips to try to help.

i meant the max guy sorry!!! im sorry i meant him yours is great thanks a heck of a lot i will go practice now…
