Son with "new bike syndrome"

So the boy finishes his new bike 4 days ago (transition "trail or park") - this is his first time dirt jumping it

Actually his first time trying a 360 on a big bike, (he dose those fine on his BMX bike) he did have a successful can-can, turn down, and cross up just before this.

Very good. I would be so nervous if that was my boy. I would love to be able to do them skills. Where do you go to learn this stuff?
