So im practicing hang 5's for almost 5 months now, and the longest i had it balance is just for one span. How did you guys learned it any tips about finding the right balance and correct body positioning.

Keeping your leg that's connected to the foot that's on your peg as straight as possible helps. Bending your knee seems to throw your balance off. This tip also works for whiplashes.

Oldstreetdude, it’s actually the opposite, keep your leg bent so your seat is stuck to your ass and the bike doesn’t wiggle around, then keep pressure on your arms and shoulders and use the hanging leg to balance.

When I learned them the hard part was to get in and out of them, I was either pushing too hard or not enough. Once yo figured that out balancing it is waaaaaay easier than a manual.

I also messed around with the one foot rocket manual whatever it might be called, so I was used to balance with a hanging leg, maybe work on those

Don't look at the ground, don't look at the bike, pick a solid point way out ahead of you and focus on it.
