i can do pedals ok but not peg grinds

whats goin on?

i been riding for about 4-5 months now and can do quite alot

180 with fakie
180 tyre tap to 360
360 flat
pedal
barspin
disaster
smith on qp
double on qp
fj tailwip and some other stuff

but i have so much trouble with grinding on ledges
i can hop plenty high enough to get onto a ledge (2ft ++ easy)
everytime i go to a ledge and as im about to land.. i take my foot off
i been trying for 2 months bit by bit.. but i cant keep my foot on the pedal
why is this? im not scared of falling.... i just need some decent help cos this is pissing me off now

ive got a 15inch grind box in my garden.... about 2 metres long so i got stuff to learn on

any reasons why?
and dont just say.. just commit.. cos i am but i cant keep it on

when you hop up, tell yourself "keep foot on" over and over until you are on. if you take your foot off, go kick a wall and then it will be fine the next day and you will have it.

You can flat 360 after 4-5 months dam bro thats good, I find when i do feebles if i lean to the left ( side i grind on ) it helps me stay on. Also dont think about grinding just try to hop on it kinda like your going to manual on it but dont hop high enough so your back peg gets on its kind of hard to explain.

I never had that problem but try shifting your weight around in different directions

If your foot comes off before you land on the box , i would recommend trying it on a ledge that is barely barely over peg height, just so you can get the idea of how it feels when you lock your peg onto it... instead of starting off w/something you might be scared of falling off of or whatever.

You can't do regular grinds because you suck. J/K . It's because you don't practise them enough. One of my friends practised A VERY long time(don't know, maybe 3-4 months) untill he could finally do feebles. It's all practise.

same thing happened with me,i just got an older friend tht could do them to stand there while i showed him wat happend with my foot,he told me to just manual and drop my front peg on and get the feel for tht,and then once u got tht down just add a little hop and sort of freeze ur legs against the seat.hard to explain but it worked for me

Try getting into a stall first, and get stalls consistent then try to grind.

Ive been riding for just lil over a month and i already know how to feeble ledges and such. I had the same problem of putting my foot down. The simple fact is that your too scared, or your just jumping to high and your body thinks your gonna fall. Just keep practicing, thats the only thing

Well, another friend of mine learned smith grinds in 1 week. It all depends on the person. You seem pretty ignorant to me, because you think EVERYONE has to learn at your speed or he's not normal or something.

it helps you stay on the ledge.
