lately my favorite tricks have bean flat whips, but i cant do them at all so ive been wondering if anyone has some good tips on how i should go about learning them. i dont have any jumps or ramps near me to practice them on, and i only get to go to the skatepark like once a month so i cant really learn them there

i used to like pork till i found out it came from cops...

Hop a decent height, on the way up kick the bike around, keep the bars close to you as you spin it and land on the pedals. A lot of it is in your wrists but still get a decent kick and then bring it around.

yeah thats what i thought, any tips on how i should practice it like before i can throw them, cause right now im hoping like 1.5 feet off the ground and when i throw it my feet touch the ground just as the bike is about to make a full rotation

also how do i throw my arms, like in a tight circle?

Yeah I did step off whips to practice getting the bike around and landing on the pedals, like ride put one foot down or some shit and step off, whip the bike around and jump on the pedals. Yeah maybe try to hop higher or lift your legs up more after you kick it around, try to get over the frame. Yeah that's the motion of your arms that you want.

thanks bro ive been doing the step off thing for a while and i think i have the motion down, its just that i have a hard time practicing the jump and landing, hopefully ill hit sone ramps soon and get them dialed

do you think throwing them off stuff would help? like small loading docks and such

No problem man. Try doing it into small banks maybe, doing it off anything helps because it'll give you more time to get the motion and land it kind of like other tricks like 360s and whatnot.

I seek progression, not perfection.

Get your hops good, way I learnt them is try carv abit and also keep your feet up. I see so many people do it and kick their feet down and then wonder why they can't do it. When you kick the bike, keep your feet up and keep over the bike.
