Ok so yeah im trying to do a 180 fakie. yes i know how to fakie i know how to hop i lean to the side i rise the front wheel first i look at my landing zone and i do jump over 90. But i dont know what im missing every time i land i just keep going forwar where my front wheel is pointing i doesnt matter if i hop and do 180 i will go forward not backwards so im not able to fakie out. You know what i mean? i rotate but i go straight. I not even fall in or out i land "perfectly" what am i missing?

I have the exact same problem
people just told me to go faster so I guess thats the trick with 180s
I'll try when I have some time to ride
good luck

and by the way make sure when you land you lean back and not forward. that makes it easier to get into the fakie

turn head more and pull with shoulder in the direction youre going its a lil bit easier going faster but probably gonna be scary at first

Most things come with lots of practice, may take a month or two.


I ride to stay on two wheels and have fun!

I say gain more speed before you rotate into it. Keep your head and shoulders rotated, like another member said on here, "eat your shoulder" - tomdon... good advise to follow
