Okay so I read this article yesterday http://classic-web.archive.org/web/20080822161409/http://www.bmxbasics.org/new/bmx0703.html
Which explains very detailed how to bunny hop. I tried to pull it off and I managed to get both tires off the ground smile

Today I stacked up some pieces of wood and hopped over them. I can hop 6 inches ( 15 cm) i think . I tried to hop 1 foot but I couldn't get my back wheel so high tongue

Thanks to CavemanChad for posting the article

Thats good dude! The feeling you get from a new trick is like no other. I learned hops in about a week. i had a 35 pound haro too lol. I learned that little 2 wheel hucked up hop. it took me about a month to learn really high hops using pumping and stuff.
wish i had this tutorial when i was learning!

having a heavier bike will get you bigger muscles tough smile

But yea, I'm stoked. I can hop over curbs now (I hope, it's still a little chilly and windy as fuck, haven't tried hoping a curb yet) and i think i understand how to get higher. I just need to get used to pulling the back more with my feet.

And that tutorial should be a sticky, really helpful and covers what most people do wrong, starting with the front pull

I can only imagine. How hard is something like a foot jam tailwhip compared to a bunny hop xD?

Pretty hard. You start off learning these doing them the "gay" way if you've seen people just starting to learn or do them. Then as people get better at that, they do it the legit way. Just go look at footjam tailwhips on bmx videos on Youtube.

The best thing is learning them the fag way, it looks horrible but it starts giving you the feel of what an actual footjam feels like.

Fuck footjam whips, I went straight to hop whips. I just don't like footjam whips because everyone does them, and on flat.... they look cool on banks though.

They are possible, you just really need to commit to it.

I think i understand what we need to do: we have to use our legs more than the arms. Pull the bars towards yourself, not up while crouched and them jump really high with yours knees and push the bars forward. Will try that tomorrow, rained all day today :/
