Hey there all... I'm new to bmx and I've was wondering if any of you know where I can get Dave Mirra trick tips vol 1... (or such dvds) I was trying to do the bunny hop and it isn't working like you see people doing at the sk8 park, or on youtube. I'm to scared to ask for help from the others at the sk8 park. I can't even get my front tire up more then a few inches and never mind the back tire. I know I just started yesterday and all but I'm not sure I'm doing it right. if any of you can help I would love it. Thank you.
sincerely,
Alyssa M. "Allie"

Go to youtube and watch vids. Just practice I don't expect you to be bunnyhopping till a couple of weeks if you started yesterday.

dont be scared to ask for help. Most everyone will certainly be willing to help you learn stuff. I have learned so many things by just asking for help

Personally, I prefer bmx on dirt to skate parks. I find it easier. give that a try.
+1 on youtube. I'm still considered a noob, but I've learned ****loads from there.

skate park basics;
