    why can i still not do a bunny hop???

    i have been trying to learn how to do a bunny hope for the last few months, every time i go out i will have a few attemps at doing it but with not sucess. All my friends can do it and therefor can do all a lot more tricks i can do. obviously i can get my front wheel but but i jus cant get my back wheel off the floor. i have read loads of sites instructing me how to do it and watched a couple of tv shows but yet still no result. i also cant get my back wheel up when i am trying to get onto something like a bench or log.
    How long did it take you guys to learn?
    is there something that sombody told you that made you see it in a different way, and really helped you to make it?
    Also i do not want to hear PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE as i am doing, jus want a little more help.
    Please help

    to pop like i do now it took the best part of 4 years to learn.
    i know you don't wanna hear this, mate, but just keep practising. unfortunately BMX is a sport where you will stick a trick or skill immediately or it will take years, or anywhere in between.

    Tilt your feet forward/down and LIFT that back end up. Practice doing this on its own, like a donkey kick. See how hi you can bring the rear up on its own.

    A "few attemps" isn't enough, just go out for a couple weeks and do not focus on bunny hopping on flat if it's causing you that much trouble. Try em off curbs, and mybe off the side of some pyramids, or off a home made gehto ramp, so that you get the feel of goigng in the air.

    I'm a 40-year-old bald road cyclist with the coordination of a hippo. One of the neighbor kids was riding his BMX bike around and I asked to give it a shot. It took me about three tries to bunnyhop on the platform pedals. If I can do then anyone can.

    if it's off a ramp it's not a bunnyhop.
