well explain how you do them...now [fornt tire then back tire]...[both tires at once?] i don't know.

anyways here i'll do it.
1. do it over something that will crush..it will help.
2. go jogging speed
3. when your close to the object pull your front tire up to the height of the object.
4. sort of point your toes at the ground and push forward on the bars
5. don't try it once and then come back and say it didn't work. PRACTICE!

Here's what I do.
Pull up and jump.
...
It's wierd though.

I can pull up and jump off my pedals with my back tire on the ground, but I can also bunnyhop by jumping.

I can't really understand the physics of my riding fully.

Sort of true, if you go fast enough you will air anyway without knowing how to hop. But it's a lot easier if you know how to hop first as it teachs you how the bike moves in the air and how to land properly. Trust me if you get big air and land badly it can hurt bad, especially shins when the pedals whip round as your foot slips off ::oops:

buy lighter parts
The is exactly what you don't kneed to do. You should learn how to ride before you buy a bunch of upgraded parts. It also dosn't matter how light your bike is.

1. To get better at them, try compressing alot, when i compress to hop, my ass pretty much touches my seat( Its pretty much slammed) Then follow through with the hop steps.

2. Your probally doing the hop wrong. I got alot higher by learning the "Right" way. All of my friends call it a pro-hop. Before i learned the "Right" way this was my way to do a hop.

1.Compress
2.Lift my bike with my handel bars
3.Slam my bike down by putting my weight on my feet.

Its pretty hard to for me explain the way i learned the real hop but it just takes time to learn it and get used to it. Ive been riding for lets say A month and a Half pretty much riding each day and my Hop is at or just below the 2 foot mark.

keep practicing, it aint gonna come in a 15 min session
