I've been barspinning for a while and usually when I throw my bars, my front goes to the side. I throw with my right hand, so my front end is going to the left. Then, when I land, I usually have to pick up my front end to get it straight. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong and do you have any suggestions?

probably throwing too hard.

do you bus?

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

No I don't bus. I don't think I'm throwing THAT hard and plus I think it would be hard to change the speed of it.

Also, a lot of videos I see, the bars are going like 100 MPH.

thats just cause they have good technique. a lot of them don't throw very hard.

you could be pushing a little bit t-bog style when you throw?

Hey that's a good idea haha. I'll try that today. It'll definitely be something to get used to.

yep seems like it would work, just throw them kinda toward you instead of making a quarter circle with your hand. it will take some getting used to but it might help!
