yo, if i was in the situation dude id just keep trying them till they aventually feel right, i learnt them topside and after a while throwing with your left hand will fell natural just give it a little bit of time and practise, im sure it will feel better soon

well it is if you want to learn truck drivers and make photos and footage alot better i would suggust learning them the other way just looks alot better and stuff for me it took a little while learning them the other way, and if you already have one way dialed the other way shouldnt be to hard,

ive already got truckdrivers down, i spin goofy. left foot foward spin to the left and bar to the right very messed up.

So Marnold, In Australia does it make you different being a street rider? Because it seems to me, most the dudes in Australia who ride, mainly ride park. But in America, it seems to me like most the dudes are all crazy about street... Enlighten me with what its really like to be an Aussie BMX rider and what all is popular down under.

If you spin goofy and throw bar's to the right no need to learn the other way man.

Hey man, nah not at all man there actually is alot of street riders in austraila just not a guys get noticed as much as all the park riders do. Being an aussie bmx rider isnt really being something man its just a thing i do on the weekend and after work with my mates and something we all love to do, to be honest with you i really dont pay the biggest attention to what all is popular man i ride for the fun and for the good times.

Hey man, with nose manuals its all about practise and finding where that good spot is. With the balance finding that point and keeping it up it will take time and practise it will come and you will be anle to balance them
