since i can only imagine you are talking about a rollback because i have never heard thruster...you don't even need to use your brakes for that man actually i dont' think you should...you just are rolling fakie and you just turn your front tire quick and turn around...use pedal power to stop your back wheel.

Using your brakes for this makes it more consistant then pedal power, and just keep pacticing, you start getting the feel for it after a while.

Practice, practice, practice. . .

I'm not good at explaining things, but I'll tell you how I learned. . . the road I live on has a nice little downhill slope, not too steep, but goes on for a little over a mile. . .

I just pulled a 180* in front of my house, the slope of the hill was enough to keep me rolling, which DOES help with your balance IMO, and just kept trying until I got it. . . by the end of the downhill mile. . . I pretty much had it. . . of course, I never mastered it, but that's due to the fact I have trouble riding fakie. . .

Which is embarassing considering I've been riding for 4 years. . . *sigh*

I had to learn with brakes before i could do it without....make sure you turn the handlebar first before you hit the brake

yea, they are, but i think he is talking bout just pivoting out, i think the easiest way is to do it without a brake

dont' even worry about that man...took me forever to learn to roll fakie decent...but then again i picked up tailwhips and 360's really good...just works that way sometimes.

Infantry's right...I STILL can't land fakie. Comes from riding dirt almost exclusively for 3 years. I'm working on it now, though.
