5 days

I started to Bmx 5 days ago and I have mainly been working of bunny hopping. I decided to measure how high I could jump. I could jump 9+ inches. Is this good for 5 days? Also, what trick should I work on next?

Keep working on the hop, 9 inches is decent since you can hop over most little stuff but learn how to tuck after you pull up (I hit a ceiling of 2 feet and haven't gotten better in a year).

Do manuals too, even though those are a ***** to learn they're pretty much a staple of street. Just pull back and try to balance, then keep trying, and when you're completely sick of trying them, try them 5 times as much as you have so far, and call it a day.

For my bike, i have to really pull up far to hit my balance point. Will i eventually get the hang of manuals at such a high angle?

You are annoying. Maybe I don't feel like editing since I would not really be editing.

I could go a little over a hundred feet consistantly at one point, but my bike geometry got screwed up and I had to kind of relearn them, they're more sketchy now so I can go maybe 50 feet most of the time. Been practicing them for like 2 and a half years, haha.
