My feet constantly come off the pedals when I go to barspin. I don't know why but Its just naturaly instinct I suppose, trying to learn barspins has never been so difficult. Help?
Thanks.

Please don't be a fucking mook and tape your feet to you pedals.
By forcing your feet to stay on by tape or some other method, you'll develop a horrible crutch. Chances are that crutch and your need for that crutch will make you develop crutches in other parts of riding AND in your life.
Your feet are coming off because your brain is panicking. Your brain knows something is not quite right so it's trying to fix that by taking your feet off the pedals. You need to convince your self that you can do it. Maybe that just means you need to practice the motions more or that you need to get out of your and do it. Gotta find the right way to make your brain understand; that's all it is.

Duct tape was sarcasm.

Honestly the only way to learn barspins is........................................... wait for it.............................................. just fucking do it! but for reals, thats all it is.

Nut up or shut up!!!!

try buying shinguards from dans. the fox racing sports they're 16.95.... you can also find them on Ebay with free shipping.. they go under your jeans and provide you with a lot of confidence. i just landed my frist fly out bar about a week ago and these helped ALOT. i also typed out an explanation on how i learned my barspins on another forum.

heres the link-----Barspin Help

really, you need to through later, so you are not still going up when you through, because if you let go of the bike, the back end will drop, so pinching can help, watch some slow motion videos of barspins to get the idea.
