I have a concrete park that I've been going to but the layout is kinda sketchy. The only box jump is set up in a way that a beginner like myself can't get speed going into it.

My question is what type of ramp/jump do you find it easiest to practice new tricks on? The design of the park is like a big bowl so should I just try to fly out of quarter pipes on to the flat top? I want to start working on 360's and tabletops for now.

do them off of curbs, way easyer, and if your just learning the rotation you dont want to go rely fast, and you also want to know how to fakie out from banks first

I'm learning 180s flat or off a curb like you said. That's fine. But at the skatepark I just wasn't sure what was safest to jump off of so I don't kill myself.

The way I understand it is: A flyout is jumping out of a quarterpipe onto a flat surface. Is that right?

yeah or a bowl, dish, or a tabletop would be considered a fly out, anything that you get a lot of pop but, not a shit load of air.
