    Whipping issue

    Ok, so i am not talking about tailwhips, but whips like done on downhil.

    The thing is, i managed to figure out how to do them but i keep landing on my front all the time so i tried to lean back on the land but it feels off balance...any tips?

    Dirt jumps come and go, but dirt junkies will dig forever.

    Keep in mind that when jumping it is good to land front wheel first. Get the front wheel on the ground and gain control of the bike.

    Another good video from the coastal crew guys. (notice how he lands front wheel first)

    Maybe ill try to use more of the bar turning momentum instead of leaning foward to make the
    back whip.

    Well, i was right.

    Actually its the easiest thing in the world....u need to bunny from the lip( important to have the bunnyhop dialed the right way) and then just rapidly throw the bars to one side flicking a little bit with the shoulders and then let the rear end do his thing, no pressure is involved. it should feel has smooth as butter and then the obvious part of doing the same routine again to the oppsite side to have the smoothest landing possible.....!
