    Casing

    Hey guys i finally got a bike (eastern grim reaper frame , cranks, animal everything else pretty much) and i have been at the skate park the past 3 days, gotta love public skateparks, i have been doing 180s on quarters and for the past 2 days trying to air. I am able to get my front wheel above coping every time i want to but when my back wheel clears it i case, resulting in a nice over the bars descent once, anyway if yall got any tips that would be great

    Well. Try to land a tiny bit farther down the ramp.
    Just go small to big.
    Don't try to go big the first times.

    if your trying to air out of a smaller quarter with less tanny its going to be harder and require a lot more bunnyhopping at the top.

    if your trying to air out of a larger quarter i.e. 6ft + then just go fast and ride up it untill your front tire hits the coping. that is a good indication of when to pull back a little and air out.



    This quarter is 7ft tall and has some awesome pool coping at the top of it. Deff fun to ride.

    Tight pic man, yea the quarter that i bit it on was a 6 or a 7, i guess it just takes a bit of time and some trial and error to get a feel for it just like anything else in this sport
