ASK THE BMXPerts: TRICKS ARE FOR GIRLS
Bookmark and Share

Hi my names Amanda, I am 14 and I own a Kink Launch. I started riding about 2 months ago and have gone to a skatepark once. I can bunnyhop, fakie occasionally, hop down a 3 stair (Woo-hoo right?), and jump the intermediate jumps at our park. I was wondering what tricks I should
start out with on the jumps? I am not scared to fall.

ANS- Start out just getting the feel for the jumps and if your truly not scared to fall, your comfort level should show quickly as you start to drop your nose into landings and pull up more off the lips to go higher. When you feel like you are in control and confident, never mind scared, start with the basics, like one-footers, one-handers, kick outs and X-ups. These are all great tricks because you can learn them fairly quickly, they all help build bike control and then you can easily start pairing them up to make bigger tricks, like one-footer one-handers or one-footed X-ups. Remember to wear your pads and helmet and you will be pro level in no time.
