I hate it so much when kids say J-Hop. It's a bunny hop. It would be one thing to call it a J-Hop or a Bunny Hop but to say that they are different things is one of my biggest pet peeves

alright first start small attemp to manual and then at your highest pioint ( witch will probibly be a couple inches for you ) just try to push your bars foward and your body and kick back with your legs . at first you will land front tire thats ok then eventualy when you get your front tire higher start to do more of a scoop and compress in your legs and slowly you will get a good jhop it took me about a month to learn a good one but it pays of in the end

Mine too but when you live in a town of riders who are retards except one or two it gets to you and I didn't know how people here would be. They say there is a difference but I was confused.

My thought exactly! Its even worse when you try to explain its the same thing and is and always has been called a bunny hop and some scooter kid rolls up and argues with you like we only ride bikes but dont know anything about the sport.

I just started riding this year, and I can definitely say this is a very good explanation. It also helps (in my opinion) if you are jumping over or onto something rather than doing bunnyhops flat.

Aw, yisss.

A bunny hop is when both tires leave the ground at the same time all in one move. a j hop is a two part hop, first the front tire lifts then the rear

It's a bloody bunny hop people, you lift the front tire off the ground, reach your peak tilt your feet towards the ground and push forward thus lifting the back wheels off the ground and making yourself look awesome.
now what the hell is a j hop and where did it come from

What you need to do is stretch out the "pulling-up" process. You're likely pulling up for a split second, then bringing the bike forward too soon, which results in the bike coming too far forward. Ultimately when you do a good bunny hop there are 3 motions. First you lean back/pull up and jump up into the air, next you wait for that moment of weightlessness, and you time your tuck with that, so that the peak of your tuck comes at that mid-point of your hop. Lastly, as you start to descend you need to extend your legs and prepare to absorb your landing.

Hope this helps dude!
