Well, ive got my 360 fly outs, ive got my barspin to fakie + reverts, and ive almost got my disaster to 180tap over the spines, im guessing foot jams or tyre taps would be the best next trick? Seeing as pedal stalls are ****ing impossible...

I pretty much know how to breakless tap, its just going to take a lot of practice, footjams however, im nowhere near!

Someone just explain them for me :)

I'm not the best pulling foot jams, as far as I know
just try to stand over your front tire as near as possible to the copin
and when you're ready to drop in, just try to hop the higher you can
and then keep your front tire straight and 4 any reason do not let your shoes touch the ground, you may slide some times but later if you keep your tires right it wont happen any more, hope this help you, that's how i pulled it,
please let me know if it worked out

learn to hop into and out of them on flat first
then on a gentle slope/bank
then on quarters

on slopes first obv, build up onto steeper ones, on a quarter try to let your rear wheel hang over the edge a bit and stay parralel, it makes it a whole lot easier to get back in

id go with trying tire taps first, their heaps easy to get, it would probably take you a day. i found it easyer to learn them on quaters. just lean back and hit your breaks hard.

tyre taps are relatively easy

go with just enough speed to be able to hop onto the deck without taking your feet off
go for a 90 and lean back and hold brake or use pedal pressure
do this near coping but not on it..
once you land youll kinda rotate a tiny bit on the back wheel cos of momentum
and then hop back into the ramp by leaning into the ramp then pulling up with back legs

Pedal stalls.
Nah, I'm kidding.
Work on some tire-tap variations or nosepick variations.

And for anyone looking at this thread for help on footjams, you're going to have A LOT of trouble if you don't do one-footers with your front foot.
