    What you described is a footjam whip, not a whiplash. A whiplash is a rolling flatland tailwhip.

    As for advice, kick it harder, and swing the bars around a bit with your arms to keep the momentum going.

    I can't do them either, some days I just practice it like 50 times and make a tiny little bit of progress. I bet it'll be a great feeling to learn them though.

    Try cutting the wheel sharply right when your putting your foot in the fork. Oh, and in case you didn't figure this out already, you might want to be going at slow speeds when you do this so you don't flip forward.
