I'm a beginner in BMX and thought it'd be cool to do a progression thread.

Got my new bike last Thursday.

1st day at skatepark- got used to my bike, dropped in for first time, and learned to 180 in the half pipe. I attempted to get out of the half pipe and ended up falling flat on my back (half pipe is 8ft tall)

I highly doubt you learned 180s having a bike for 3 days...

I seek progression, not perfection.

Well not obviously every time, I swear to
God I landed a 180 my first day 4 times off of a fly out . Almost a 3 too. I don't get them constant but sometimes I get lucky . And yesterday I got fakies down pat off of a wall or footjam. Gturns are not that hard. Just carve into em keep pressure on ur front tire and watch it the whole way. I used to bmx when I was like 13 but not alot . I'm 17 now .

I get what the dude is saying here. I did the same thing, i learned 180s real quick and all the stuff. I progress really really fast because i ride a lot. I literally ride every day as hard as i can.

2nd day at skatepark, I tried clearing the coping on the half pipe, I kept messing up, my nerves got the best of me.
I spent time trying to 180 on the box, couldn't do it.

I successfully did a consistent amount of fakies!!! It felt so good, I spent all day in the driveway practicing. I also practiced manuals, there was sometimes that I did it pretty good for a good distance, just gotta be more consistent.

I think he's talking bout rockwalks, for a gturn i believe you have to travel backwards on your front wheel

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.
