all u gotto do is pull your front really high, using a lil of strength and putting your whole body weight way back. After doing this don't let your front go down, try to stay like say 1sec or so then do an endo which is like lifting your back up, u gotto remember to push your handle forward and lean forward when u are doing an endo after u pull your front. Thats all i can say, go practice, thats the best way to become good.

ya hes right, u gotta learn how to do an endo, which is having either your right or your left pedal (preferably your left for rat hops but nvm that) towards the back of the bike. when u do this you want the left pedal facing down and your left leg pushing on the pedal really hard and just lean way forward (with your chest almost all the way down to the handle bars) and lift/kick your leg up and it will lift up the back tire. for big ones, push on the handle bars, get used to doin that without having your chest down to the handle bars then try doin it while lifting up the handle bars. -Bunny Hop-

if your just starting out, just try to sort of jump with the bike a little bit to get the hop in there, then as you progress, pull up on the handlebars, and try to throw some weight forward and make sure you push down on the bars so that the band end comes up. it worked for me

caleb does have a point, because to get a good endo going you have to push on the bars, which you do use in the bunny hop technique
