    thank you

    You'll have no respect at first. Grow some balls and keep trying new things. You'll gain your "respect" at the park, but you need to be..brave..and don't worry about what other people think.

    Just go to the park and try to be friendly with the guys and not act like an ass. Don't try to show off or be bossy and just ride. Riding brings people together, and that is all you will need to do.

    Then keep practicing so you can become less green.

    Don't worry about it- everyone had to start off somehow. If you are that shy about everything, then take to the streets and try to bunnyhop and manual and such, and then when you get that down, go to the park.

    Hit the parking lots for a few days/weeks until you can bunnyhop up a curb and at least pull up a manual and set it back down without crashing, consistently, then you'll be a little more confident to try some stuff at the park.

    Bunnyhop
    Manual
    The two core basic tricks you need to master. It'll take you a while to get even semi-good at them, so just keep practicing them. They are al you need to learn right now. After that, you can try some x-ups, barspins, and nosemanuals.

    His specialty is the hop to manual to leg snap.

    I'm good at the back flip to body slam, I got them dialed.

    My last trick was a hop to manual to shatter my leg in three places and be on crutches and be unable to ride for eight months.

    EDIT: WTP, you stole my thunder. I want it back.

    I just told you. Hop to manual, except it was a very high speed hop to manual. I don't think I will ever go half that speed ever again.

    This guy might as well be a racer with the way he rides, so fast.

    Almost 3 years big bikes, 1 year little bikes here. Except I basically stopped riding MTB when I got my BMX bike a year ago, so that might be 2 years.
