Try practising front manuals first beforehand. When you're bunnyhopping, just lean forward and you should be able to nollie. Takes practise..

Practice. And give equal time to your spelling and grammar too.

when your riding from spot to spot, instead of picking your tire up to hop off a curb, learn how to pick up your back and whip off the curb. pull back and try to land on your back tire. then try to do them straight and off higher ledges. soon you will be hopping up stuff and going into grinds.

theres no reason to practice nose manuals before nolies. Just like queensrider said, just start jumping back tire first. Lift your back and bunny hop. I can do them easy because I first learned how to bunnyhop lifting both tires at the same time so nolies came easier. I dont do them too much though. A nice nolie stair gap or nolie smith allways looks good though.

Try using your front brake. (If you have one.) It'll help you, but I wouldn't suggest using it all the time. Just get the motion down and the feeling of going up tail first.
Instructions:
1-Use front brake, your tail should pop up.
2-Just pop up your bike like you would for a bunnyhop, except focus more on the front.
3-Get used to it.
(I want to note this is just an idea. I don't know if it works or not.)

Yea, the whole front brake thing will end up getting you on your face at the bottom of a set of stairs. Just jump and lift your back first..

won't work.


i found these two sets of stairs, they were 3 steps-flat-3 steps. i nollied to manual and barspinned. throwing barspins out of high speed manuals are hard.
