Basic Tricks of BMX

When people first enter the world of BMX, their first question is often "What tricks to I start out with?"

First of all, the main trick you want to get down, as discussed in an earlier post of mine, is the bunnyhop, that is, using your bodies strength and momentum to lift the bike, and yourself, into the air.  This leads to many other tricks that you'll be learning.

One of these is the 180, which is when you bunnyhop and turn, while in the air, your body 180 degrees and land backwards from the direction you were facing.  Depending on if you're on an incline or a flat surface, you will have to either fakie out of it (ride backwards and turn the bike back around using your handlebars) or just ride foward, if your on something such as a ramp.

Another trick is the 360, one that gives a lot of people trouble.  To do this trick you essentially do a 180 but put a lot more force into your spin to get yourself all the way around and facing the same direction you started in.

Later on ill make some posts with more in-depth descriptions on how to perform these, and other, tricks.

Until then thanks for supporting! :)


BTW you may have noticed another ad at the top of the screen, sorry if it annoys anyone, I hope it doesnt get in the way but theres some cool stuff thats advertised there so be sure to check it out if you like it :)

  15. Thanks for the input on bidvertiser, I've heard nothing good about it and the only reason I deicided to do it was because I saw it on your blog I believe. I'm gonna replace it with AdBright and hope it works. I'll let you know if I start making money off this.

    Please remove this comment once you've read it. Thanks again for the help!

  16. I had a friend who used to BMX.
    I'd see him bruised up all the time.

    I think his love for weed overrode his love for the sport.
