Landed quite a few flyout 360's!

I also tried some flat 360's but had to correction hop after the landings.

Im proud, I had never tried 360's flyout or flat before. I have only done a weird 360 to fakie half cab thing on a tiny bank.

I pulled up to a skatepark and looked at one of my favorite banks and decided I was ready to commit to one. My first try I landed 270 on the deck but I kept trying for a couple hours and finally got like a weird 300° one and pedaled away. That really motivated me to keep pushing for a more solid one!

Got a bit of footage of some of the earlier attempts from today, I really wish I was filming when I got the one I would actually count as a 360...I will throw some in the next couple videos of mine if anyone is interested.

How long did it take you to get 3's?

It took me 4 or 5 tries flyout but on flat, it took me a looong time. I think I'd actually landed a hop whip before I first landed a hop 3, although it's a long time ago now so I could be getting mixed up.

Damn! 4 or 5 tries! Good job.

I could see dirt being more forgiving on a crash than concrete but harder to get the carve at the lip with the dirt giving way and all.

I had a taco quarter with a grass landing behind it so there was no real risk.

Quarter tacos are dangerous to your health though. There is such a thing as too cheap of a taco.

Yes...I just quoted myself.

I think you need to push yourself a bit more. I've watched a few of your videos and it's clear that you're riding below what you could do.

Glad you landed a 360, but I'm sure you could have learned that a year ago. I think it should serve as an example that there are many tricks you have the level to try, because it didn't take you long to learn 360s, and it's gonna open up many other things and improve you confidence/skills at the sale time.

You should always try out new tricks that you're confident you're not gonna hurt yourself trying.

I think it was pretty fast after I got 180s figured out. I likely tire tapped a LOT and then just started twisting harder.

Sounds like what I did too, I still don't throw them over box jumps, only to the platform. Also could probably 3 off ledges but stop myself at 180s, just gotta go for it.

I still have yet to try them. I have a dirt step up that's pretty much perfect I just have to commit to it

The days I set out to learn new things, I do accomplish them, you are correct. I wait till I am not only physically ready for something but mentally, as well! Keep in mind, I am starting pretty late in the game and learning these tricks in my 30's. Lol I just turned 31 this July.

I know for a fact there are many tricks/variations within my grasp but I have a lot longer recovery and more money lost when I do get seriously injured.

Good shit, a handful of attempts flyout first, then probably day or 2 doing them flat. The lighter the bike the quicker easier it'll be. If anyone is having a hard time doing them flat try doing a 180 to tap to 180 will be easier with brakes but can still be done less with pedal pressure, that makes it easier to learn if you have a harder time, and looking over the shoulder which ever way you spin helps.

It took me awhile maybe 3 or 4 years into riding to get them down on flat, what really helped me was sending it down some steps, not entirely sure if id recommend doing that though lol

Sick!

Took a few days flyout since I had to drive to a different park because my local has no flyouts, I think I could've got it quicker if I lived nearby. I only recently, maybe the past month or two, started flat ground. The real challenge is keeping my finger off the brakes, I still tap a little at the end, maybe like a 300 or 330, lol.

I'm 27, and I started riding at 25. A bit younger than you but still beyond the "I don't care if I get hurt" point. I'm scared to try many things, my first priority is to not get injured, I don't recover that quickly.

But at that age you still can push yourself quite a bit. That's a thing that I realized when I landed my first barspin an hour after trying it for the first time. A lot of tricks are not that hard to do, they're mostly a confidence thing. And a lot of tricks are not that dangerous to try, even if they're mentally scary.

Another example is that I learned ice pick stalls in just 2 sessions last week, even though I was at first really scared to keep my feet on the pedals while landing on the peg ("what if it slipped?" etc.).

If you just push yourself to try a trick just a few times, you quickly realize that it's not that scary to try, and that mental block is gone.
