ok, i've been hitting some fairly large jumps and i've found one that i like alot. i'm trying to do whips, and flatty's. Everytime i do a whip, i can't get the back end out, so i'm just sorta twisted in the air. The flatty's just end up with me twisting the bar. plz help!
When doing a whip, use your legs and push the frame out, if you are very confident start it as you take off. Also lean to the opposite side you want the end to go out, also if you are whipping land front wheel first for the sake of your poor rear wheel which will get munted.
When doing flatties/tables, push your hand;e bars accross, don't just turn them. And use your legs, you can do small flatties only using arms or only using legs but when you see a real table they use arms and legs.

You could also probably post this in the BMX forum, I think more of them worry about doing tricks than the people here.
I'm not one to give advice, I can't do either very well myself.
