Fastest: No-Footed Barspins. Took me 6 (yes, SIX) tries to get one clean. Back then I had bars more dialed than any other trick so they were easy. I could probably get one within a dozen tries now. I should get it on film. Hopefully soon I will get a solid chance to hit my local park.

Slowest: Whips. Took me like 6 years to land one to frame and pedals, about 8 years to pedals, and I still RARELY get one.

Front wheel stuff for the most part escapes me unless I have a front stopper. I think I might be removing the front stoppers this week, and getting back to the barspin anything and everything days.

Fastest was maybe hop no footers or wallrides. Each took around 20 minutes to get one.

Longest has been footjam whips. I landed my first one in 2009 and i have only landed three since.

I know, i know i can get the frame rotation perfect but for some reason i can't catch the pedals. I can catch pedals perfect on tricks like no footers, on footers, and barhops though. Idrc though, it's no biggie if i can't fj whip.

Fastest- I got a hop 1 hander the first time I ever tried. I also got 1 siders in the first few tries over a small hip.

Slowest- Higher hops. fakies, 180s, fakies out of 180s. Those all took me about 8 months.

I still can't get legit nose bonks honestly. I can do them but they're sloppy most of the time.

It was something pretty close to this:
Listen man, it isnt about how much you tuck em. It is about WHEN for a perfectly flat three. Tuck them right at 180 and put down when you are about 360.

Do three taps. Dont you dare over acheive! haha if you cant get a three sixty, dont try to make it perfect from the get-go. Get 3 taps. Just hop, turn your head and dont try to fakie when you hit 180 backend first, just keep looking.

Best way to do it is have something in front of you to look all the way around for. 360s arent too bad, but i recommend having maybe a bank to try them off of. Dont be scared of speed. I, however, do NOT recommend a flyout. Flyouts are one of those places that can be hard to learn tricks on. Mainly because the jump is intimidating to most, or worse, not available. I recommend a nice bank for that reason. You can carve on a bank and be okay, if you carve out of a bowl, you are messed up. haha If you mess up on a flyout, you are gonna hurt more.

Tip 1. Find an object on the ground in front of you and roll towards it.
2. Compress!! Hunch down with your arms and legs and get ready to pop.
3. Begin to carve sharply and pull up right at 70 degrees (you can carve more if you are comfortable)
4. Pull your bars to the furthest they go
5. Keep your damn head turnt
6. Push out at about 180 and keep your legs and arms pushed out.
7. At this point you will see the object you chose to look at and land smooth and have a sexy 360!
8. If you learn it, give me an internet high five!

Good luck all you non-360ers!!
