    okay. this i know. it took me about 4 months to hop 180. you must just do what your doing to get 90s, but kick the back out more. you must just twist with more force. give yourself time. goodluck

    (say you grind to the left) Just wind up for it mentally, just before you take off slam your head around to the right lean to the right and turn, the split second you start to turn HOP!! Kick out your tail to the left and land backwards. Try to keep it level but let the back wheel stray slightly down to the ground. If you grind to the right just do the opposite.

    Hope this helps you, it took me about a week trying it solid

    oh and its all about the HEAD!! forget anything else, if your head dont spin then nor do you. It should be a natural reaction when your head is turn'd back and you hop

    try them down steps, you'll have to get it or eat it, so it will help you.

    are you fooking crazy, he'l completely feck himself up. i mean c'mon, 180's down a set of stairs is 10 times harder than 180's on flat!!! + he can only 90, that means when he lands he will fall sideways and it wont be pretty!

    if your going to go that extravagant and try a set, DONT! do it of a curb not a flight of stairs

    ok ok, the computer screen is him, and the hammer is the floor, OBSERVE

    ive been tryin 180s recently too. the head thing might work, but i dont use it. I use a halfpipe or a really steep incline. Try fufanus. Im still trying those with no success.

    The head definatly DOES work. using inclines's does work to a certain degree but only works for incline's. On flat is a completely different concept. use incline's at first its alot easyer, but some time you will need to transfer that skill onto flat. Thats when you have to start using your head.

    practice practice practice. it just like riding a bike realy, just backwards. but do try to pedal backwards faster than you are travaling. if you let the hub grip your cranks, you pedal backwards with the bike real slow and lose your balance.

    180s must be easy on a freecoaster... can they take the abuse of streetriding or any they mostly for flatland?
