Umm...NO
Lets see back when... I would do the cheating bunny hop. Where when you pull up on the front you also pull up one the pedals with your legs. This was enough to get me up onto a curb or something small.
One day a friend I was ridding with told me you "you got to learn how to bunny hop". So he showed me the basic. Pull up, and then push down. It felt weird, very weird. And after a lot of practice I got it. To get the movements correct I collected a lot of coke cans and told my self to jump them and not crush them. I worked on this all day. Pull up then push down. Itís really simple, but really hard when you are learning. Good luck.

I hate it when people describe how to bunny hop by saying " you pull up, then push down ". No you don't!!!!!!!!!!!1 It's more of a pull up as high as you can and then suck your back wheel up to your ass to level out and get over what you are bunny hopping.

Question to tanner: Do you really think firebolt is searching this thread after 3 years trying to find out how to bunnyhop? Would he really have been waiting 3 years for an answer? Use common sense and grow up

In memory of ProZak(sarcasm tags)... (what the hell happened to him, like is he ever coming back, haha)

[sarcasm]But don't forget you need a bunny too! That really shows you've mastered the sport. When you can jump a moving bunny without crushing it![/sarcasm]
