I dont understand how to get your back wheel up when you are bunny hopping. Any advice?
make your toes point to the ground that try kicking your butt with your feet while keeping them on the pedals
try working on curb-endos first

this might be a j hop or what i call a horsey hop because in Grosse pointe we are kind of slow with names buti always push foward on a hop when my front tire is in the air
pull up more... your frame is only so long, eventually the back end will lift if you go high enough with your front.
try off of a lip on a sidewalk or use a sloped curb.
