I've been trying to learn bunnyhop 3s on flat for a while now, and not being able to do them is starting to frustrate me. I can usually get the full 360 degrees of rotation but not before my back wheel touches the ground. I usually get between 180 and 270 then my back wheel hits. I've watched a few YouTube videos where people say to suck your back end up, but I don't really know how to do that. I'm not sure what to do with my body to get the back higher. I've pretty much only tried them on flat with a few attempts on a ramp at a skatepark. I'm not sure if I should try to learn them off a ramp/bank first or on flat. Any help about avoiding tire taps or anything else would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

What they mean by sucking up is to bend your knees. But I learned them on a pyramid and I got them dialed in a day flat

mine arent perfect but if you tuck your knees up as if your trying to do a high hop and it usually comes round. also, tucking forward towards the bars moves your (centre of gravity? axis?) forward and speeds up the rotation.

When I pull my knees up to my butt should I extend my arms out to compensate or not?

If you havent gotten them yet, this is what I did. I first learned them to fakies on a hill, then I took them to a jump. I just decided to try them flat one day and I got them pretty quickly. They are easier than you think.
