your opinions on combos

hi. there's a BIG BIG jam happening in a town near me on saterday, and i got some combo tricks in mind:
> barspin sprocket to alleyoop out on 1/4
> x-up to nacnac feeble
> 360 tiretap to barspin
> 180 front tiretap to 180 tiretap
> sprocket to slider out
> some other stuff

now my questions:
1. with these sorts of combos should i enter beginner or intermediate?
2. any other beginner/intermediate stuff that you can suggest i will try, so please suggest some stuff?

thanks
J

if you grind right, a hard 180 would be a spin to the left, a regular 180 would be to the right. the hard 180 is more difficult because the friction from the back tire rubbing on the ledge can stop you

Just do whatever you can do. It's not like you're going to do a flipwhip in a pro contest or something.

No-footer to double step-thru/no-footed can-can looks alright, but a one-footer to can-can just looks sloppy, unless you do a nac-nac or a griz.
