i would say bar spin but i dont know u to tell u if u can get the height and do the spin. wut u should try is a 180 (if u havent done that), some stalls then move on to grinds, or try flat land and learn how to tailwhip (if u havent done that already)

do a search on this forum for Bunny Hop. There's a couple of good threads even with pictures.

Can you do manuals? If not try them. Once you can get like 5 parking spaces, you're doing good. I would say barhops but thats probably a little too advanced, and you need good balance and to know what your bike will do when you land on the bars. I can't really think of anything else to try, at that skill level. Try BMXTRIX.COM , they have pretty good tutorials.

1:Ride at a medium speed.
2:Bunny hop.
3:Turn your head, then shoulders, then waist in the direction that is comfortable for you(not what someone told you).
4:Stick the landing.

You just completed a 180.

You should also be working manuals as stated by charlie.
