the feeble grind is the most basic street strick.. other than like gaps.. which is just jumping down steps.. but its a grind where your back peg and front tire are on top of the ledge you are grinding.. you can learn it on really low ledges.. but if you're riding street, that for the most part means alot of ledges.. so feeble away.

This is not me, found it on google.

After you get comfortablt hitting tabletops or dirt jumps start trying 1 footers. Just go in the air and take one foot off your pedal then put it back on before you land. Tabletops are good beginer tricks to.

A table-top is not a begginer trick, you can kinda put your bike to the side or like actually make your bike paralel to the ground, thats a table-top.. they're not easy.

There a good trick for beginers to try. I never said he would be able to do them any time soon. For a begginer it's good for them to try and do table-tops because theres no real risk in trying it of a jump your comfortable hitting. It's not like a barspin or a no-footer or something that could mess you up easily. The earlier you try something the sooner you'll land it.

u spin the bars half way around. so that when u catch them the handlebars are backwards. than u spin them half way around to get the handlbars straight again.
