yea i guess so

i guess what you could do is get a few of your friends and make little lumps out of dirt or tiny ramps out of bricks and wood and jumps off them then learn how to balance and stuff i guess

ok stop being prats guys, this guy is obviously just starting out. dorlin, just start with a bunny hop, then when you have got that down, do some more bunny hops, do bunny hops until you have nightmares about them, then do them of stuff like curbs, steps, over walls etc etc. most importantly however, do it as much and as often as you physically can. BMX is not something that will just click over night, it take alot of time, and bunnyhops - even though simple - are an integral part of BMX. after you feel comfortable on you bike, just think of simple trick to do at first like endos, 180's on flat, and manuals. BMX is all about progression start of small just getting used to your bike until it is like an extension of your body, then move on to other stuff, and don't follow a guide or anything like that cos this if freestyle, you do what you want. if you want to hop and grab your seat, do it, if you want to hop and take your foot off, do it, if you want to ride backwards do it.

most importantly however be part of BMX, read BMX mags cover to cover (I recommend looking glass, dig, ride UK and national geographic...ok so it not BMX but its still good) and watch BMX videos/dvd's.

but even more importantly, just ride where ever, when ever, and how ever you want......just go for a cruise hopping over curbs around town, whatever. don't expect to do all the big arse x-gaymes tricks, as soon as you start riding, it will come with time, just stick with it, no matter the season or how crap you think you are.

if you cant find anywhere to ride, just look around town, build some dirt jumps, make some ramps, and be prepared to travel to skate parks and out of town street spots.

and a really good piece of advice is to get a friend which rides to ride with you it much more fun that way, if you don't know anyone try and get one of your school friends to start riding or something.

heheh just reading all that reminds me of jerry springers final thought...if he rode BMX offcourse....damn im ***...oh well.

Start with basics. Balance. To facilitate this, start by learning bunnyhops and manuals. Meanwhile, chuck yourself off stuff....(ramps, short curbs, etc) and get the feel of the way the bike behaves underneath you.

I would not think no footers and the like would be the place to start, although people learn differently. Some are more natural than others, and some have to work at it......like me.
