    If it's like a skateboard no comply, he probably means a foot plant or fast plant.

    Are you talking about bunny hopping? If so, all you do is pull the front up and then shift your weight back forward.

    Sounds like the rear isn't complying with the front...

    Yeah, I think that's a J-hop. As for the cradle, kangaroo perhaps? Except without the hopping? Anyway, I'm not much good at either so I'll refrain from giving advice.

    cradle = see saw.

    I have an OLD book that has that as a stunt. do an endo, then a rear wheel stand.

    See my post below and take a look at the link I posted. Practice w/o the curb or with but it is the same technique. Bookmark that site, there is a lot of good info there.
