I wouldn't say it's not very clean.

I just don't like when both tires are picked up at the same time. It really causes problems later when you're trying to take 180s to stairs. Try picking your front up first and then sucking your knees up.



You've probably heard of Adam LZ before, his tutorials are pretty good.

I'm not trying to cause any drama with anyone else. It's just my preference. I have a friend who can't do stairs or gaps because the way he 180s. But if you're happy, it's totally fine.

Why do you hate Adam LZ? He's a great rider. He has a bit of attitude but who doesn't..

let me rephrase it. i dont actually hate him. i hate how cocky/douche-like he seems on camera. he seems like he thinks hes better than everyone else i guess what i actually hate is how he portrays himself on camera. but i never watch any of his edits due to that.

It's alright just keep on doing them, you'll slowly get them to look better.

Squeaky Clean mate you don't really need to do anything to it I guess if you really wanted to change it then you could maybe use a different technique to make it look nicer I guess

to make them more clean I would definitely suggest making sure you pull your front wheel up first then back wheel when you do your 180s and then work on getting those fakies cleaner and then it would look pretty dope.
