I broke my Scott Wallis Deathgrip handle.
But I also learned to wheelwalk and one foot with both feet. Not at the same time either.

Dude, 4 feet= 48" to pedal, right? Ryan Atkins has hopped 43" to tire, which means he can probably hit somewhere around 50 inches to pedal. Which would mean you're in Ryan Atkins' league. So are you really almost as good as Ryan Atkins?

My son learned to jump mount today... It only took him like 5 tries to hit the first one... and he is probably hitting 75%+...

I... um... I got three turns backwards and 3 idles... (man I need to work hard to keep up with him... )

A hickflip? Is that when you rotate your hillbilly 180 degrees in midair?

I got in four idles for the first time; I usually do three and fall/shoot the uni out behind me. I also learned how to keep going despite pedal strikes when I really lean into turns. I got off a few really, really low hops today too, for the first time. I never could land one before. That was all this morning before going to church, too.

Yesterday, I transitioned from one-foot riding to one-foot idling and back again for the first time, I seat-out hopped up a curb and rode off for the first time, I came closer to a suicide mount than ever before (I can do the jump onto the pedals, but only if I hold onto the seat), and I went in a backwards circle with a smaller radius than ever before.

So, did you pick up a new trick today? Finally make that six-foot static side hop? UPD for a stupid reason? Post here!
Nice going Eric! You'll have to show me those new tricks when we ride this Tuesday! Well I just got back from Moab Muni fest, and I kinda learned something new.

A film crew from Mountain Dew was there filming a lot of us and asked me if I could/would hop down a ledge at a skatepark that was higher than I've *ever* hopped...so naturally i said yes!

I was pretty scared but tried not to show it as I side hopped about 55" down, and landed it first try! Whew! Other than that both Eric and I learned recently to mount to one-foot pedalling both from pedal to crown and then mounting first with one foot on the crown directly to one-foot pedalling. cool!
