I just put on my new freeze stem and aitken tires. Now my bike feels alot bigger haha. Plus aitkens are alot less forgiving on sketchy landings. I can not hop as high though.

The headset question is whenever i tighten mine, i tighten it until i feel tension. It was really loose when i cruised around today, how much should i tighten it?

right here.

tightening it hard will seat the bearings better, then loosen it so the head set will actually spin, and won't fudge the bearings up

that would be dope just go like 1-2 cranks faster and just keep looking
also try
no footer cans
tuck no handers
180 cans
hitting hips
no footers
discos (one ander one footer)
full discos (no footer one hander)

just a bunch of basic tricks that come to mind

I wish there were good skateparks around here. This one is a mile from my house

But it sucks cuz you aren't allowed to have pegs and you have to were a helmet. shin guards, and elbow pads.

Put your bars forward a tiny bit. Your bike looks tiny
