Hey, I've been working on the flatland tailwhip for a long time lately, and I've found myself putting the free foot (the foot that kicks the frame) on to the front of the front tire, rather than hovering it in the air. Does anyone else do this? Also, I've been working on the tailwhip for like 6 or 7 hours of complete tailwhip practise and I still haven't gotten it once. How long did it take you guys?

I use my free foot to balance.... I also found it easier to learn when I would spin my body to the front like a 180 decade and cath the frame there....so its like a 1/2 tailwhip and 1/2 decade.

there is a difference in how the tailwhip is done. From your description it seems liek you put your foot on the peg and your 'free' foot on the tire. The regulkar tailwhip is done by putting one foot on the tire directly, and kicking the frame with your other foot, which then becomes your free foot for balance and catching the frame. It is a pretty nifty trick to get this dialled.

i do foot jam whips and i only balance on the foot that jams the wheel since i dont have a peg on my left side. but ive been working on doing a half whip drop switch my feet, which causes the back of bike to pop back of the ground, and start scuffing then do like a half decade. i dont know if anyone can get that but its hard and its hard for me to explain.

I am getting these dialed now. You'er going to have to deal with the jamming foot crossing the frame at some point in the whip. Whether you decide to put your right foot (for us righty's) OVER the frame and onto the front tire FIRST.....then push (not kick) with the left leg (which is what I do)....OR you decide to use the same foot that is pushing the frame (I have seen this too) where you push with the left, and also jam with it.....when the frame comes back around you are STILL going to have to lift that left foot OVER the top bar to get it back to the pedals.

This should probably be in "tricks"
