This is the spot where I tell you how to do different street/vert tricks.


Abubaca- Approach the ramp or curb at a moderate to slow speed(unless vert, then go faster)and hop, land on approximately a 65 degree angle holding your brakes, lean back, then hop backwards, roll backward a few feet, then spin around the bike.

Abubaca x-up- Approach the ramp or curb at a moderate to slow speed(unless vert, then go faster)and hop, land on approximately a 65 degree angle holding your brakes, lean back, turn your handlebars so that they are at approximately 180 degrees around, then turn them back to the original position, then hop backwards, roll backward a few feet, then spin around the bike.

fufanu- Approach the ramp at the same speed you would for a abubaca, then hop, land somewhat crooked at the same vertical angle as the abubaca, then pull a 180 off of the top of the object, then straighten out your bike, land and ride away(hopefully)

fufanu x-up- Approach the ramp at the same speed you would for a normal fufanu, then hop, land somewhat crooked at the same vertical angle as the abubaca, turn the bars 180 degrees, turn them back, then pull a 180 off of the top of the object, then straighten out your bike, land and ride away(hopefully)


360 Tailtap- very easy trick, it is a necessity to learn. jump your bike, and spin as fast as you possibly can at a 50 degree angle, pull back and keep spinning your bike, when its all the way around, let the front end drop, and ride away.

540 Tailtap- semi-easy trick, same as above, except jump higher and spin like taz off of looney tunes, balance on your back wheel, it may help if you use your brakes(only if you can't do it without, otherwise it kinda looks like crap).

Tailtap- necessary easy trick, all you do is come to the top of the object you want to do it on, hop, land sideways at a 90 degree angle(holding your brakes), and hop back in.

Tailtap x-up- not necessary, but very fun. You go to the top of the ramp, do the tailtap, lean into the ramp, and pull the x-up (turn your bars at a 90 degree angle, then hop back into the ramp.

tailtap barspin- crazy but fun trick. Same until you get to the x-up part of the trick above, instead of x-uping, pinch your seat with your legs, lean into the ramp further, then barspin, grab the brakes asap, and then jump back into the ramp.

tailtap barspin abubaca- this is one of the harder tricks i've done on 1 wheel. first you do the tailtap barspin as shown above, after you perform that cool part of the trick, hop 90 degrees in the direction that is opposite which you did the tailtap, hop back onto the coping of the ramp, then jump backward, roll a few feet, and spin the bike around.
barspin airs- This is a fun trick. All you have to do is grab your seat with your knees, spin your bars 360 degrees, keep your bike level, and grab your bars on the grips and ride away.

walltaps- somewhat difficult trick, but necessary. You have to find a jump with a wall near or right in front of the jump. once you have found the location, then you approach the jump at a moderate to fast speed, hop sideways, hit your back brakes, tap the wall, then do a hop back into the jump, which sometimes isn't successful...believe me, I would know.

fastplants- very easy fun trick. go off a jump, kick your foot off the pedals, grab the coping with your foot, spin your bike back in the opposite direction, and put your foot back on and ride away.

feeble grinds- extremely easy, jump at a ledge with your bike, land with your front wheel riding on about 3 inches on the edge of the ledge, with your back peg grinding the rail, if you can keep the wheel on the edge, it will keep grinding your rear peg.

smith grinds- somewhat more difficult than a feeble grind, you must keep your front peg on the ledge, while leaning somewhat toward the ledge to keep your wheel on the coping.

doublepeg grinds- easiest grind of them all. just pretend your trying to jump next to a rail with your wheels, your mind will think that you are only riding next to the rail, but you really are grinding down a ledge or rail.

crooked grinds- hardest grind of them all. you must do this on a rail, you cannot do them on anything else! You must find a rail you are comfortable grinding. after you have established this, you must have 4 pegs, or do a x-up grind down the rail. To do this difficult trick, first approach the rail at a slow to moderate speed, hop your bike, land with your back peg on one side of the rail, and your front peg on the other side of the rail. This leads to a very slow and acward feeling. It is normal to wipe out the first 30-100 times when you try this grind, so do not do this trick without alot of skill and balance, and you must be competant to do it, wear some good pads people.

icepick grinds- somewhat easy trick. all you do is land at a 65-70 degree angle on your back peg down a rail or ledge, this trick can only be performed on a level rail or ledge, or a downhill rail or ledge. its fairly simple, just use my angles and you'll be fine :)

180 feeble- easy. All you do is hop 180 and do a feeble, but make sure you have a smooth peg while doing this, without them, you will get drag, or in extreme cases, you may flip backwards on your head. Be careful.

180 smith- not real easy. same as smith except a 180 degree spin, with your front peg pressed against the ramp to grab the rail and keep you level.
