how much pressure are you putting on the pedals win you land? try going a bit faster and when you land back pedal a bit faster too. also how are you with rolling out?

Just keep practicing fakies on a slope or ramp and try getting to were you will be able to fakie at a higher speed. some tips when i fakie is to stare at my stem and keep my weight more toward the backend. when you do your 180s try going a lil faster then what your used to, if you dont wanna go any faster try carving a lil to make you complete your 180 quicker and still have more speed for the fakie. i hope this helps

i forgot to mention that you want to backpedal only a lil bit faster than your cranks this might help cause i see a lot of people that try learning fakies and they just backpedal way too fast

How has nobody said this?

Try looking down at your tire or stem, it helps with your balance

well when i first started fakies i learned them going down a slope and on quarter pipes, but when i started doing 180s i used a 2-3 crank speed to start off with then went up from there. The only time i land with my tire curved is if i need to fakie out of something quick because there is another jump/obsticle coming, but other than that i land with my tire straight inline with the bike and then start backpeddling and then do my fakie. if your having trouble with 180 fakies its easier IMO to land with both tires straight before you start rolling back because it gives you a little bit more momentum going backwards to do your fakie.
