    try to learn how to do a wheelie. going about walking speed, but most of your weight towards the back of the bike. than snap the handlebars up and PEDAL!!! If the tire goes down real fast it means u didn't pedal, u didn't pull up hard enough or u didn't put your weight back.

    i have been practicing the trick for about a week. i have pulled back too much 3 times. i landed on my feet twice and once i landed on my knees. ouch!

    X-ups, one-handers, one-footers, and feeble grinds; those are some good, basic tricks to start off with.

    I agree with Beerman those are some good tricks to focus on but I would also add barspins to that list. They are actually really easy even if you stay on the pedals. I got them down the same night i started trying them. And if you can hold a manual and barspin it looks cool as hell. But anyway thats alil harder ... LEARN manuals they will be forever useful in your biking career. wheelies are fun but learn not to pedal its more impressive.

    yep, definitely manuals, I just returned to bmx a few weeks ago,after a 10 year break; and to learn manual is definitely better that a wheelie, also some bikes are really good for wheelies, some not, manuals will really help your balance and control of the bike from what I have seen recently.....
