find your balance spot, stay at it and pump with your legs to keep balanced. it just takes practice.

i suggets to find the point of balance and to go beyond not bye pumping ur legs but rather by using ur breaks if u pump this not only takes alot of energy but is for longer manuals that want to go on for a whle

if you want to manual, you have to pump. using the breaks doesnt make you balance and keep going, it just keeps you from looping out.

youve seen a crane right you know how it works yer with the counter balance so it can lift stuf, well think of the front end of ya bike as the end that lifts stuf and ya arse as the counter balance, it dont matter what trick you do if the balance between those two points aint right for the trick it aint gonna happen ,with a manuel youl find once you can balance on the back wheel you can bounce the balance points gveing you a steady motion a bit like bouncing on the back wheel, (which is a good way to practise balance and control)but while your moving.i was once told that the longer you can stay bouncing on ya back wheel the longer you can manuel, so me being me i took it to my own extreme and now i dont have to bounce i can just balance, got a bit more practise to do on the front end though .
