i kno u guys are probably going to tell me to search the forum(and I have), but do you kno any web sites or any thing where there are bunnyhopping videos. ive looked really hard, ive found some but they arent really helping. im kinda stuck at 1 foot and i cant seem to get past it and ive already checked bmxtrix.com but they dont help much either.

try any biking video out there, preferably a street video. Buy little devil criminal mischief, animal can i eat, fbm all time low.. blah blah.. just get biking videos and you have 40 minutes of non stop bunny hopping and great riding. Theres also a how to video in dans for basic tricks.

I was just answering his question, I didnt feel like being mean. but in that case yea, videos will not show you how to bunnyhop. You need to keep trying to jump over and over and over again all day. You will get them if you try. I hadent seen a bikeing video or knew anyone who knew how to ride before I learned how to bunny hop and how to do alot of the basic tricks.

Yeah, Videos just excite me and give me the courage to do stuff, or try new things. But, a video has never helped me. Try doing leg exersizes, or just going bunnyhop crazy almost everyday.

that was before he broke his assbone on that rail, right?

good music for that part.

i love that style of street. big gaps, rails,ledges. some tech things here and there. i can do triple kink rails, big drops, manuals. not on 20+ stair rails though. i learn alot from watching edwin. now i throw a barspin or kickflip out of everything.

Yea it was. That rail is beyond crazy long in person, it isnt something a human should attempt to grind down, let alone ice pick.

no, i've done bigger rails than that. 50-50s though. the thing about that rail was the kink at the end.

they made a slim jim commercial with that video on it.
