Hey there ,
Ive currently starting out bmxing about 2 weeks ago and well as you can see im in need of some help .
Ive seen the thrill and excitement of my friends riding and it seemed like alot of fun and well i guess its started from there.
Ive been riding for about 2 weeks now as mensioned earlier .
Im 15 years of age and on average i bmx for 2 hours a day ,
I know it may not seem alot but the thing thats stopping me from getting more out of riding is the " bunny hop " in particular .
I feel as though if i can learn this there will be more possibilities for me out there as a rider .
I know how to wheelie , but i cant endo - which may be a problem for learning the bunnyhop.
Ive asked my friends wot im doing wrong and they say that im not doing anything wrong for getting the front up but i need to learn how to get the back of the bike up.
I know once i get it it'l seem easy and i'l have doubts about why i couldnt do it in the first place , but at the moment i cant do it and thats where im hoping you guys come in coz you obviously have more expertise in this subject than me .
Im so confused with all the different ways now that people have told me i dont know which one is the right way for getting the back of the bike up.
Some say jump , some say lift front and lean forward , some tell me i need to push back on the pedals and lift the back up ... etc etc i dunno which ones reliable .
I need help with the technique.
I practise alot and ive had no success .
I know itl come to me sooner or later but for now any help would be appreciated .

ummmm...just save up some money and buy some shimano clipless pedals :D then you just have to jump...haha no, the thing you need is just constant practice, never stop riding and in a while you will be asking for help with like...tailwhips and stuff 8) keep riding

Yes dkbmx is right, practice. You say you ride 2 hours a day? Well for those 2 hours you should be focusing on practicing that damn bunnyhop.

whats good 2 do is ride in a circle do a bunny hop then manual bunny hop then manual eventually ull be awsome at both

That seems like a good idea I'm going to do that, see if my manual and bunnyhops improve.
