I'm just getting back on the bike after 4 years and I'm a little sketched out about dropping in on quarter and half pipes. I know you do it at an angle, but how do you commit and what other tips do you guys have? And also how you 180 back and forth on the half pipe? thanks!

you said it yourself.... You just commit.

Everyone commits differently we all have our reasons to why we ride. You just have to muster up the courage and commit. When I commit to do things I try to calm myself and realize what I'm doing for what I'm doing it and if I believe I can pull it off. Sometimes I fall on purpose to try and get a feel for the consequences, mind you when you fall it's usually unexpected so it might work might not.

Just commit, start small, and give it a shot.

I've watched tons of videos on YouTube and they said its actually pretty simple, it's just committing and following through with it. But how do you 180 back and forth in the half pipe?

I've been told to go at it side ways and go into it walking speed and lift the front tire to clear the coping and lean into it. It's so nerve wrecking though!
