I caught both pedals just before I landed as you can see above but I slow-mo'd the clip so you can see it and my problem, I'm leaning too far to the left which is why I slid out.

Can anyone give me some tips or should I just keep practicing? My friend taught me a little secret to whips on Saturday so I've only been applying it since then (right when the bike gets halfway around, kinda tilt the left side of your handlebars down (or right side if you whip the other way) and the whip will come around easier) so I haven't known about that long but they feel like they're getting easier so I'm gonna keep at it for sure, I was just wondering if anyone had any advice other than keep practicing.

I'm stoked as fuck they look good though

I think its just your mind taking the pedals off (maybe because you havent landed one yet) but im not sure

maybe. my friend who was helping me on Saturday said once I land a few, they'll come to be a lot easier. I just keep leaning too far, I landed like this twice and would have rode away but I slid out haha

so you still need to get over frame? I had that problem for fucking ever. hopping a bit higher helps, also step towards your frame and make sure to push your bars down
