Just use the ****ing search or open your eyes and use your brain. There are at least 3 Threads with people looking for help on 180 bunnyhops and the answers are ALWAYS the same.
Carve before you hop, spin your head, try to bite your shoulder, land it, pedal back, turn around, PRACTISE!!

I will construct the following guides, including two ways to do 180 bunnyhops to fakie.


Type 1: Normal.
Step 1: Go at a comfortable speed.
Step 2: Carve into your 180.
Step 3: Bring up the back tire and sort of throw your body to the side you rotate to before you bring up your back tire.
Step 4: Kick up your back end and turn your bars the opposite of the way you're going to pivot out.
Step 5: Backpedal until you feel comfortable enough to pedal forward and pull up.
Step 6: Pedal forward and pull up. Set down the tire when your 180 degrees from when you landed.

Type 2: Video
Step 1: Go at a somewhat fast speed.
Step 2: Carve very little into your 180.
Step 3: Pull up your front and torque your body as much as you can towards your 180.
Step 4: In the air, tuck up your bike as much as you can, and straighten your bars.
Step 5: Land, and start back pedaling.
Step 6: Keep backpedaling.
Step 7: Still keep backpedaling.
Step 8: Still backpedal.
Step 9: Turn your bars and when you get about 45 degrees around, pull up your front tire and hop.

Just been out practicing and I can manage 180's again no problem. Not got much room where I was practicing to spin it back around but I was landing fakie no problem and rolling back quite a bit without falling or taking my feet off so I reckon I've got it back again. Just need to do it off a ledge or a jumpbox now.

Had a go at getting it further round and can manage about 270 from a straight hop going quite slow. Hopefully if I get a bit more speed I'll be able to get 360 nailed as well. Not bad seeing as this is the first time I've got back on my BMX in 8 years and I've only been practicing on my driveway so far.
