  • Video Tutorial: Learning to Hop for the beginner

    Seems like such a simple thing, but many beginners have questions about how to do it. So I made a little tutorial. I hope it helps some people.

    Have a good one,

    Thanks for that Dane. It covered some points that I have been wondering about. I'll have to drop the seat if I seriously want to learn The business of keeping the legs bent was well shown and explained too.

    Thanks again.

      Thanks a lot Dane, I just started learning how to hop, now all the questions on my head were answered and very well explained. I already lowered my seat this morning by 1 inch so, I need to check it again.

        Excellent Dane - really well explained - particularly about hopping in order to keep your balance not hopping for the sake of it. Do some more.

                      Haha none yet, I'm pretty careful with how I distribute my weight when I land big drops (I have bad knees so I have to watch out)

                      Also I am not a super extreme rider yet, and I think the people that break seats the most are big street riders.

                      When I get the chance next time, I'll plan out a beginner muni tutorial. And as I learn how to master some other muni skills, I'll make other mini-tutorials

                          Yeah dude, thanks for the advice. I'm able to hop around now because of this video...now for height. For more height, do you pull the saddle forward from under you or do you just tuck higher? And do you recommend people being able to stand on the balls of their feet while sitting on the saddle?

                            Seat height is all preference, lower seat makes it easier to pull up, but doesn't make your original jump higher, if that makes sense. And it seems that most high jumpers do it seat in front, but there are some that don't. I need to work on SIF hops myself.

                              Will it be easier to free mount with lower seat? I am still have a hard time to static mount but able do some rollback mount instead.
