Styling it up - Tabletops
Anyone got any tips for improving my tabletops, I have heard the 'try to get your top knee over the top tube so both knees are on the same side of the bike', should i be turning the bars or just pushing and pulling? Anything else that might help?
Both knees the same side of the bike.....   trying to picture it but struggling......

If you are progressing i'd watch videos on the net of some guys that are pretty good and pick things out of their technique...

Just find the local bmx dj spot and go watch them then pick up a cheap 2nd hand jump/street bike off ebay.

The only danger of watching them do jumps is that it may make you want to give up riding completly like when I watched a kid 180 over a spine on Tuesday night, rolled out of it backwards then 180 bunny hopped and rode off...
Spent the morning at perry working on this, progressed a bit but still a way to go yet, I can do it perfectly in my head its just getting the body to follow that is the problem! Will keep trying tomorrow.
group of us going to Porc tomorrow and a few of the guys I know who I think are going do some big stuff and get the bike flat off tabletops etc,

one mate with a blood is pretty useful

(should be there 10.30ish)
