yer well i learnt them six months ago never did them again, now the last 3 times i tried i snapped my chain..
here is what happened
1) local park- ledge around 2 stair height i slipped onto the chain and crunch
2) street spot- around same height as local, kept getting my peg under the leg coz it overhangs and then i landed weird and snapped it
3)street spot- again same spot

help its g**, now i am scared of doing it, i think i put my f/w too far up and consequently i go sidewyas...

should i go back to the ledge i learnt them on?

just go at a really slight angle and make sure you bunnyhop high enough and land on the peg with the tire next to the edge of the ledge really it's just practice and if you have them they are super simple.
you also might find a wooden ledge or something(maybe at a school or somethign) those things doesn't destroy your chain

what i do is ride at a less angle and bunnyhop more but it's a good start just practice from that and in no time i really mean no time you'll have it
the bunnyhop out also needs a bit practice but it's good

If you are landing on your chain your coming in at too much of an angle or when you go to hop it you hop too much and land sideways on your chain.

I think the grind all depends on how you land and guide your front wheel on the ledge or whatever.

So i think you should:

Reduce your angle

Find a ledge that is'nt very wide, so you can learn how to put your front wheel on as close to edge of ledge. By doing this, it will help you from going to wide and landing on your chain.

Hopefully that helped

I forgot to add, You have to Commit to doing it

It looks like your problem is the front tire angle. Try to land with your front tire as parallel to the ledge as possible.

id ride parallelish to it, and just go to side hop onto it.. I find it you get your front wheel on, concentrate on your pedal hoverin over what your feeblin, then when it is your back peg will always get onto it..hope that helped..
