In the beginning of the movie the kid spins his bike around while keeping both wheels on ground and rides backwards, and then spins around again and takes off. How can you do that? Has anyone else seen the movie and know what I'm talking about?

Theres not really a wrong way to do a 180...thats just a different way. and you actually go up on the front wheel just a touch to get the back end of the bike around.

and just a quick question, what are you doing watching such a terrible, childish movie?

I actually haven't watched it for a long time, but I'm trying to learn 180's right now and I thought about his trick and wanted to try to figure out if I could do that way easier

ok to do a 180 basicly do a jhop (bunny hop what ever you want to call it) and turn your head the way you want to go and your body will follow

yea, that's why I put it on quotations. technically its not wrong, but if you want to 180 over something, that particular method is not the way to go.
