Hmm truckdrivers, barspins, crank arm grinds, tooth hangers, and no footers.
Honestly tricks are only hard if you arent physically capable of completing it or if you dont know enough about it to go for it. Sometimes it can be that people are too scared to do certain things. I have to try hard to do a truck, but i can do it. It didnt take me long to land it. I landed one a week after i learned to 180 bar. And the 180 bar didnt take any time at all. I think tailwhips are a bitch and a half to learn mainly because i never really had a proper experience learning with them. I think some things hold you back. Like sometimes your frame's geo isnt very good for the tricks you are trying. I learned tooth hangers in 5 minutes after i stopped being scared. Crank arm grinds are hard if you cant get the lean and angle right. There are a few tricks that are hard for certain people. Some people just get better with practice. Some people get stuff just by watching. Some people are just good at understanding the tricks.
The moral of this story is things are only as hard as you make them. If you don't land a trick, keep trying. If you continuously fail for an hour. Come back to it after thinking about it.

i follow you on instagram and your barspins are ugly, plus youve posted a vid of you trying to truck and u 180 bard, never seen a video of you doing a truck, dont really think you can do them, really sounds like your talking out your ass saying u found trucks easy when your barspins are shotty at best.
real nice calling a person out and first off, ALL of my instagram vids i have had to do the line about 50 damn times because my brother isnt good at filming.
Yes, my barspins are ugly, i dont care though. I'm not riding to impress you. They still count. And personally i find it offensive that if you havent seen me ride in person, you can't judge that.
I have done truckdrivers, many times. I will try to get a vid on here as soon as i can of a good one. And as of lately (if that is the video you are talking about) i havent ridden as much as normal. I am busy with plays, cutting grass, Madrigal choir, school stuff, college stuff, etc. I'm sorry if my riding isnt perfect. But saying that i cant do them is another story.
And even though my barspins arent pretty, i do catch clean (the first 3 lines i do,, the rest im fed up with my brother fucking up on instagram)
I never said my barspins were a crowd pleasing trick either. I don't find them to be the most fun. I ride for me, not you.
UPDATE: Just checked my instagram. The last time i have posted anything with a truck in it was an attempt. It was IN THE WINTER when you cant ride everyday. And if you are referring to my last video, it WAS a 180 bar. I didnt call it a truck.
