be humble,be friendly, be willing to learn. U must practice at least once a day, doesn't matter how long you practice, but its very!! important to practice, skipping 1 day of riding session when u aren't familiar with the tricks u are doing can result in like : forgetting how to do it, impatient that you can't get it right. When u are impatient u tend to less concentrate on what u are doing.

Peace =)

Don't worry about if you think you aren't getting any better. If you are out riding about an hour a day, you are likely getting better.

It's kind of like if you went out to play golf for the first time... or some other sport for the first time. You would learn a TON in the first month or so, but then things would level off, then the progression would be very, very slow. It's the same with freestyle. You will learn all these really basic tricks, then you have hard stuff to work on.

Once you can get some air then you spend the next two years gaining control of your air and being really comfortable going off of jumps. So, a few years down the road, you can hit almost any jump and simply have the confidence to clear it. But, it's all about the practice you put into it. If you get bored and don't practice then you will never have the confidence on your bike to try newer tricks and have more fun with riding.

ride allll the time forget fear, dont take too many _____ runs.. When you want to do soemthign and you feel like your up to it, dont look at the ledge for 20 minutes and go up to it all Robie Keneive and do it after an hour of messing up your head, just go for everything. and learn to enjoy pain.
