Ok, first off, I am trying to learn hop suicide no handers, and it's not going well. I can take both hands off like 6 inches, but they aren't extended at all. Can anybody do these? I need some pointers.

Second, I cannot 180. It's embarrassing. But I was messing around with a friend of mine and decided to try and teach him. It took him 5 minutes before he was nailing 8/10 of them. I've been working on them forever, come on!

In other news, I tried oppo grinds on my box for the first time today. Im pretty sure my oppo feeble looks better than my regular haha. They werent as hard as I expected

I'm goofy like crazy. I grind right with my left foot forward. Spin right and throw bars with my right hand.

That's the way that feels most natural so far. Plus it seemed better since I bar right, so if I ever get to the point where I can truck. (WAAAYYYYYYY ahead lol)

Your only "Goofy-ness" is grinding right instead of left. The rest is the same as me. But I learned bars both ways.

Do what feels best.

Don't forget to turn your head. Try them both ways too, maybe you will be ambidextrous. Haha
