First off, if you are new you want a rear brake at least as inexperienced riders who go brakeless end up having a bad time.
What is your budget for a bike?

Get something with sealed hubs, double wall rims, integrated headset, and full chromoly. Rest doesn't really matter as far as first bikes go....you need brakes

I'd say good starters are KINK or maybe a FIT. I began late 2012 and still run that KINK Whip frame to this day. Pretty solid. For you though, I'd recommend at least a rear brake to get the feel of actually riding BMX because crashes happen to everyone and sometimes brakes can help prevent or lessen an impact. Also, you can do pretty cool stall tricks, that's why I still run brakes. A helmet is ALWAYS a good idea as well. If you get pegs, hub guards will save your hubs and I highly recommend them.

Good luck! :D

Have a look at WeThePeople, FIT, Kink, Sunday and Cult and see what you can find for $400, Look for sealed bearings and as much 4130 chromoly as possible.

Seriously, get the least expensive, full chromo bike with sealed bearings you can find. Mongoose Mode 900 was a good bike for beginners, at $200 us, it's a beast for starting out, and if, you decide freestyle bmx isn't for you, you're only out 2 bills.

Get something with brakes, you don't have the experience or feel of a bike to be able to handle no brakes. Plus brakes are super fun!
