Hey guys I started biking around 2 months ago and so far all i can do is 180 and hop

But.. I can't hop very high because i dont really know how to suck up the back wheel to my butt.

How do i do this? Itd make hopping over stuff very easier

One thing you should do is angle your feet down to about 45 degrees maybe less or more depending but when I hopped(started to learn at least and teach a few people) my feet were almost at this angle of the back slash / little less but barely. You also may want to crunch into a ball kinda without sticking your head in keep it out. Hands first then feet.

Use your feet to scoop the back of your bike up with you and bend your knees while your doing that so the back of your bike comes up higher.
