hey im a new rider from manchester uk im 16 and since i was 8 i have skated and now im starting to get bored with it. i bought with christmas money and i got a second hand coustom bike of a friend it is mainly fit pieces. so i have got used to riding the bmx and stuff but i cant get a grip on bunny hops idk why but my front wheel doesnt want to lift up like all the youtube tutorials say and it only comes up like 2 inches not giving me time to lift my back up because it doesnt stay up it just falls down straight away ... any help would be helpful thanks

Bend your knees more
Lean back more
Lift more weights

Think of it more like your pulling your bars back and not up, once you practice getting your bars a bit higher, kick your butt with your heels as you point your toes down to keep your pedals locked. And the best advice i can give is to loosen up, try to not be stiff as much as possible.
