Hi, I am sort of new to BMX and can do a few basic tricks but only on street so I guess I'm beginner overall. I have started going to local skatepark more often and just want to know what tricks I should learn there or what stuff I can do there? I can drop in to most things and air some stuff but not high and haven't done any tricks or tried spines/transfers on BMX.



Thats what my skatepark looks like. Not sure if you can get any sort of info from it. Just put Wakefield Thornes Skatepark in Google and some images will come up.

Yeah I think I'm more street myself personally. I can do basics atm. I am trying to learn to manual longer, also fakie as I suck at them at the moment. I can 180 but can't fakie out of it. I can nearly 360 but i always end up tyre tapping most of the time or getting to 270 as I don't lift my back end up as I go around.

I might try grinds but I don't have pegs at the moment. Also learning footjam whips but haven't tried them in awhile, got it around once but didn't dare put my feet back on the bike lol. And bar spins but I don't dare throw bars when bunny hopping but I've tried doing them on grass and it's still scary. Well goodluck with bmxing I think I'm just gonna keep practicing basics until I get them perfect.

After i posted i noticed the date lol and i just recently took my pegs off my bike looks and feels better now and footjam whips i cant seem to get i put to much pressure on my front tire and it slips and to me barspins are overrated everyone does them and i wont do them cuz last time i tried i smacked the hell out of my calf lol
