don't quit unless your not enjoying it and really dont want to do it
if bmx is something you really want to do keep trying nd keep trying learn some different tricks for a while and then go back to trying 180's

No.

If your tires keep popping, keep the psi high, it stops burst and punctures as much.
As for doing 180's, they are all technique.

Just watch a few youtube videos, and keep practicing and you will get there.

Dude you can't give up on on something everytime it's hard. If you want to learn new stuff you gotta put in the time to learn it. 180's aren't going to come in a day, and even after you land your first they're still gonna be frustrating to get dialed. After you do though it makes all that time worth it. For your tire check your rim for anything sharp, maybe invest in a dans heavy duty tube

don't just give up just cause shit ain't going your way.... starting is probably the hardest part once you get the basic stuff everything else almost comes natural just give it time don't rush and don't mad when shit breaks or pops shit happens and if you really love riding your bike just do it. things are going to break and pop it's enevitable almost like if you drop an egg it's gonna break, you buy a new part and keep going. it took 3+months to learn to 180 and after that 3's came so easy just give it time and don't get frustrated.

I laughed so hard. I can just imagine you finding him if he quits and just beating the shit out of him and torturing him til he gets back on that bike, and likes it.

Just have fun dont worry about progression it comes at a different pace to everyone. Hitting the gym and getting stronger works wonders for pretty much everything, especially action sports(including BMX!).

Truth. I remember I knew a kid who stopped riding. Lets just say he died a horrible death.

I literally want to quit as well. I ride goofy-footed/fuck-footed, and I can barely do the right tricks. I can bunnyhop about a foot but they're not even dialed. And I can barely 180 at all. I can fakie pretty good though, except learning half cabs and full cabs are gonna be a bitch.. And I hate getting hurt and shit but I know its how the world works. Plus, I'm more worried about getting hurt, and then having my parents not let me ride in like forever. I'm in your situation right now. I have to like literally have something stokey to do when I'm riding to get me pumped, otherwise, I can't ride. And I wanna use shinguards and a helmet sometimes, but never do.

i gave up on a lot of things, i was pretty good at paintball (speedball) and i gave it up because i got bored, i wish i never quit because it was so fun...if you quit BMX you'll feel the same way.

If you rode with me, you would be doing 180s, grinds, halfcabs, etc. You have no motivation. Your a pussy about everything. You dont go for anything. If you rode with me you would loose the vagina and grow a pair. Its a shame you dont, I hate seeing a rider not reach full potential.

Yeah. Basically, I have no self-esteem, faith, hope, motivation, courage, or stokeness currently. Maybe just a bit, but thats about it. And if I am SUPER scared to go on rollercoasters and shit, you can probably already tell..

Was the sameway about roller coasters. So I said, Hur hur hur yolo, and I nearly shit my pants upon sitting down. But after I got out there it felt so good I went strait home and beat my meat for hours.

Anywayz you cant be a pussy about everything man Life is passing you by. you'll have your falls some REAL BAD some not so bad its life if u love it go for it. O___O idk what to say keep at it. I ride alone 100% of the time im the only motivation i got other than the random strangers who scream KEEP AT IT KID. Bmx is my "outlet" its what i look forward to when im exhausted from shitty school days and life basically..... Fuck i would ride all night if i could =( but i only get 1 fucking hour a day its pathetic while my dad gets drunk off his ass he puts his "pants" on and tells me i have one hour which isn't so bad idk im fucking depressed

I was about to give up because of 180s then I said fuck 180s and learned other shit. I learned grinds, hops higher, trying tap 3's. Sometimes some tricks are just not your thing.

quitting because of finances that not so bad cause its understandable and stuff that if you break stuff and cant afford to repair/replace and if you dont have the money than ya know money dont grow on trees and in uk as i see you are jeez money is hard to get in this country and the price of things is stupid !!!
