    I can't do a 360 tail whip but I can do a 180. I saw a fat kid do a 360 So i think anyone can do a tail whip just go a little faster and focus on endoing better. I think the fat kid kinda has an advantage also 250 pounds then jaming your foot into the front tire you kind get a better endo. but I'll give Expatriate's advice, we'll send beerman over and he'll pick up the back end of you bike and spin it aroudn for you.

    I laughed. I highly doubt that you can 360 or tailwhip, seeing that you ride a race bike. I don't think beerman can do 3 whips.

    Dick, how are you going to start spinning after you tailwhip?

    I still can't land this clean yet. I fell over 50 times trying and i landed 4 but sketchy.
    It also helps alot if you whip the same way you spin. If you spin clockwise and whip couner clockwise, it will look ugly and you will bust your ass.

    wouldn't a clockwise 360 with a counter clockwise whip just end up looking like a screwy decade air where you catch the frame at 9, instead of 12?

    more people need to do decade airs. and regular decades.

    A three whip where you're spinning opposite the rotation of the whip is a 360 downside whip; plenty of people do them.

    I just need an idea of how to do it. I can do tailwhips and 360. I just want to try something different. I've never landed it yet.

    I guess it's possible to do this, I don't think I've ever seen it. I've tried it 180 off a box to fakie (body one way, bike the other), never could get my feet back on the pedals and roll it out. Not too hard to get around, though.

    Decade airs are cool and NO ONE seems to do 'em anymore. I took the brakes off my Quamen and haven't figured out how to do regular decades without 'em yet (and I'm not ready to kill myself learning rollades).
