My best trick is a Kan Kan into a nothing. However, it took me 4 months and lots and lots of falls and bruises to learn it.

getting home in one piece

i have to say thats the best thing to say to such a common question. Stacking and injuring yourself really is a pain, it ruins a good days riding. Its nearly as bad as something on your bike go wrong...

Other than that, i love just doing 360's they look and feel great. Tailwhips are nice but you have to find some serious air to get the tail back round and both feet back on.

k sicfreak i take it your new to bmx.. an endo is when you pull your front brake (which i discarded long ago) and balance on your front wheel. a cowboy endo is where your bars are turned 90 degrees, and is much harder. fakie, in a nutshell, is riding backwards, opposite to your normal riding way. same as alley-oop sort of.

Fakie is also when u jump into a wall and stall, ur tail is closest to the ground and u're facing up at the sky, this is done mostly on street.....

also you must not get alley-oop mixed up with fakie. alley oop is where you go your unnatural way, like on a grind.

How do you do long manuals? The longest one I've gotten was about 5 feet or so. I can never balance it right. I love watching the pro's go up on a street course ramp and do a manual across like five ramps then back down. It's harder than hell. Please help.

And my best trick is probably hitting a dirt jump, bailing off my bike, and doing a barrel roll swan dive. My dad was there too. It was good times. Only suffered a swollen wrist and grass stains on that one. Oh well, the best trick I've landed would probably be a bunny hop over a 2X4. No shmit, I really do suck!

My best?

A bucktooth stepsister gliding tail grab.

It's not pretty, but it's worth it.
