I tried to 180 a curb and turns out when you double tire hop your 180's, you hit your nose on the curb. What can i do?

Hop higher.

OR start trying to hop front wheel then back wheel. That will add height, AND help clear things.

Also go faster.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

Pull up front tire first
Hop higher
Edit: I think I quoted someone by accident. I forgot to mention when you get better you can kind of push or pull yourself and the bike to get more distance

Just do it...nike mofuka! Haha its a curb not a fucking 10 stair, get on with it!

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

Start doing 90s off them and when you get comfortable with that go for the 180. It is what I did

Feeble you're kinda an ass to him

It's just a mental thing , I had the issue of doing it "off" something . It relates to any trick really , just a mental block. Get some speed and pull off , but move your hips so you like push the bike away and get the tire from the curb

go fast, carve less, pop high and spin slow.

make sure you drop at a decent height. like a foot.

that way, you'll spin a lot slower. have time to adjust your body to land center.

But in the internet, i'm a killing machine with 10 years MMA training experience.

Yep, don't really carve. Personally, the higher the obstacle you're dropping off of, the more I'd throw my head and pick up my rear end. Otherwise, you can spin fucking quick as hell, and it's honestly simple as that. Now going up things.... That's kinda different.

approach the curb parralell so this way you can go as slow as you want and your carve into the curb will force you to not hit it ,
