I am wondering if i could get some help on a bunnyhop. I seem to always get my back end higher than the front. I also never get much height.

Best option is to look it up on youtube so you can see the technique.
but personally what i do is lift my front end high (kinda like a manual) in kind of a swooping motion.
then when my front tire gets about 2 feet off the ground (depending what i want to jump) then i just use that momentum to lift my rear tire up by swooping my feet back and i tuck in the air so i get extra height and i level out in the air still while im half tucked,.
then if i feel like im going to land front or back heavy i can adjust where my wheels are because i can just un tuck even more and adjust my bike in mid air so make sure both wheels land about the same time.
once you have got a decent bunny hop and landing down try lifting you're front wheel up much higher and put alot of effort into it and commit.
I hope that helped!

Lean back more, get you ass over your back wheel. The reason you're landing front wheel first is because that's where you're putting your body weight

I spent a lot of time hopping cardboard boxes, if you land on them it doesn't really matter (you crush the box).
