it's not easy to describe how to bunny hop, lots of people have there own styles, but i prefer to kind of manual and lift up the back if i want to get up kurbs, but for bigger one i don't know how i do it, i just do.

-Practice riding and pulling the bars up. Practice donkey kicking(curl toes down and pull up rear end with your feet). Put both of these together and you have a bunnyhop.
-Practice jumping over things. Start with a small object, then pile things on top of it to go higher.
