hey... thats your name...
lean forward, rub ur foot, at teh right moment jam it while kicking the frame. Its a lot easier if u have front brakes. when the frame comes back lean back. also make sure the pedal is in the right position when u kick it. KICK IT!!

The first rule of tailwhips: Do not kick it - push it using your full body weight.

ey....mike ya i wish i could help....its taylor..........ya i think you should try them at wakfeild at the top of one of the wedges....

you should also practice just doin footjams to keep balance and get control then once those are dialed try the tailwhip........
that waz the second trick i learnt... all u do is push against the frame and as the frame gets to a 90 degree angle lean forward and the frame will move faster and as it get to about a 180 degree angle lean back and it will spin faster so u dont have to balance as long. And as for gettin bak on to the bike just swing your leg out and over the top tube as it comes around.........that trick took me lots of practise.
thanks for the advice
...i got it now but its still a little sketchy
