great advise. Try J-hops u can get higher air, but u really need to work out ur back and arm muscles. The stronger ur muscles, the higher u jump.

you are greatly mistaken.

j-hop is the same thing as a bunny hop which is the same thing as a pro hop or a dolphin or a deer hop or......

lots of different names for the same trick.

Alright your muscles have nothing to do with your bunny hops its all skill and practice

an ollie and a nollie are both skateboard tricks.

an ollie is pulling the front end of the board up then the back end.
a nollie is the opposite, hence the name. Nose Ollie = nollie

I misread his post, anyway. He's talking about a normal bunnyhop, not a nollie.

Ok a bunnyhop has a thousand different names but they can be done two ways
1. You pull up the front of your bike and then unweight and pull up the back to level the bike out in the air. This gives you the greatest hieght.
2. You can pull up both wheels at the same time. However this does not alow you to jump high and is considered the incorrect way to bunnyhop

Now a nollie is the opposite. It is when you unweight and pull up the back wheel then pull up the front and level out in the air. This is the hardest of the three to do and its even harder to get a good amout of hieght. However it is more of an advanced trick and looks awesome when done correctly.
