bunnyhops - front end then scoop back end
moto whips - turn the bars and leave the rest of the bike follow
180s - turn your head and theyll be 10 times easier
and finding your spot in a manual to where you can hold it

Call me dumb, but to get used to the high drops of ledges & shit, run full speed & jump off it first to get the feel of the landing and shizzle. That's what I do atleast.

It'd prolly help if i wasn't being taught in the bike shop (ahem BLAKE). I can get the front to pop up, its the motion of getting the back wheel up and forward that messes me up. im thinking too much
