manuals?

How can you do manuals without peddling? Like on the Props Megatour a guy manualed probably about 50 feet without peddling.
also how do you do a nose manual and keep from falling forward and crashing from trying to get rear tire off the ground to actually do the nose manual?
besides balance...

There's a ton of threads on this.

But, you just lean back and you have to find a balance point in order to keep the front end up. Basically the same thing with a nose manny, but much harder.

It's all about balancing over the back wheel. I can still only manual about 20 feet max, and i've been riding for about a year.
I think they are hard to get down.
