MTB rider gone wrong

Hey, I ride a mtb and so does my friend. But he recently got a BMX bike! He has learned a few flatland tricks like endos and tailwhips, but he wants to learn street. He's not sure which tricks to start learning. Can you help him. I told him to work on trackstands and balance but I'm not sure what other advice to give him. Thanx for your help.

Tell him to start small, maybe work on manuals, small grinds, then work his way up to manualing down long steps, manual to grind, small gaps....
and my favorite, manual to a small gap.. these are all easy once you learn the basics of how to balance yourself.

it might sound like i love manuals, but its a good place to start, since isnt that the basist for most street? manuals, grinds, and gaps.
