Somebody's doing it in this way:
1. Ride at a moderate speed
2. Kick the bike
3. stick my foot in the tyre
4. Let the frame spin
5. watch for the pedal then land on it
Which one is the right one?
Is there any defination ?
The second one seems to be more stylish and hard
which one it better ?

the second one is better for style points. but the first one is easier.

yeah the first one is the basic fj whip, the second is when you start doing a really tiny tailwhip hop but you footjam straight after you kick the frame, makes it look better, a 'proper' fj whip if you will

How to kick the frame first and then jam the tyre ?
Any tips?

well for example if you spin your frame anti-clockwise you'd start to hop, kick the frame with your left foot and at the same time bring your right foot over the toptube to land in a footjam while your frame is spinning, and just jump back on the pedals as the frame comes back around

I would say that there is no right and wrong. But nr. 2 is more stylish. I've only seen pro's do nr. 2.
WHen I'm out there trying to do it I always end up slipping of the front tyre and hurt my ass really bad :p

I do it the second way, somehow, it is easier to me...i do it by backjacking a little and kick it, when the frame start to spin, i land my foot on the front wheel. then watch the pedal and jump back, although i land it by a pedal on the frame and a foot on the pedal...if i am not wrong, this is the only way you can do it on a quarter pipe or bank
