I have been practicing trying to air out on a four foot quarter and have been unsuccessful. I can exit out and drop in no problem but I would really like to learn to air out. Anyone have any tips or explanations of what to do? I have also been working on 180's launching out. Any pointers there? Thanks guys and gals!

you dont really do a full 180 when you air out. well i dont. i go up on a slight angle and just before my front tire hits the coping i lift up, rotate then lean foward abit and land. as for the 180s out i learnt how to fakie first. when i 180 out i turn my upper body first then the back follows.
