How long did it take to learn a seat wrap?

So I am currently working on seat wraps as my first proper trick. I can do both parts of it fine but seem to find it difficult to land it all in one go. I can do it some times but very rarely. I was just wondering, how long did it take you to learn it?

I've tried doing a seat wrap a few times, but so far, this is the best I've been able to do.

Seriously, I think the hardest part of learning to do seat wraps is keeping the wheel still and keeping balanced while doing the wrap. I guess like anything else, it just takes lots of practice.

Ok I did laugh for some time there Terry =)

I first learned it as a mount, then later from the crank. It took me a few days I guess when I was learning the mount. It was a pretty big gap to go from mount to wrap from riding back into riding. I do it all the time now, its a great lil trick for showing off. On top of knowing how to do it from a mount, learning it from the crank must have taken another few days to get after that. But to perfect it... now that can take years =p

You can do better, Terry. Keep practicing and after a while it will be a piece of cake! With presents.

I've heard of churning milk into butter, but a unicycle into a piece of cake? Now THAT would be a great trick!
