    well if i were you id start off on a new bike.....
    dirt jumping - build some small ramps and jump em then make em biggger and work on that
    street - find a ledge and wax it up real good and start grinding and learn manuals
    i cant help you on vert
    but you can try flatland too

    like they said, build jumps, make them bigger the better you get.. find a half pipe and just carve the walls over and over until you get better and better. and for street, man, just have a ball. Practice bunny hops and do stair-gaps and try to hit ledges, do stuff you cant do yet, and just have a great time.
