    Getting out of smith stalls. Tips?

    I have not really rode bmx in forever because i just got busy with other things but i have been attempting to learn smiths. Right now i'm just doing stalls to get used to getting on the ledge and getting off aswell as getting comfortable being in the smith position (Always had the fear of catching and going otb) My problem is that last night i managed to get into a smith stall 3 or 4 times but when i go to hop off i **** it all up. I usually do feeble grinds or double peg stalls and hopping off is easy because i just pick up the front and hop like a regular bunyhop. With smiths it's weird for me because i can't do that. do i just hop the front peg off the ledge and push off using my back tire? I'm not sure how to explain it but that's the only thing i can think off.

    Your first problem, Tyler, is you can't get out of grinds without having a grasp of how to use the English language.

    What is the point of posting if no one can read/understand it? There is however a rule about not typing in txt, but I'm sure you already know that.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Bunny hop out of the stall, simple as that. Lean out over the transition and turn your bars.
