So, you’ve bought your first BMX bike, learned the short history of BMX, laughed at the BMX fails online and found some great local BMX spots as well – it’s time to learn the basic BMX tricks and how to master them.
Unfortunately, what that means is that the hard work hasn’t even started yet. See, even the basic tricks can be difficult to master on BMX bikes. All in all, it’s probably safe to say that the basic BMX tricks aren’t actually all that basic. Though with a bit of hard work and determination, anything is possible!
Still, no amount of reading about the history of our saviour Mat Hoffman or watching Kriss Kyle’s Kaleidoscope can improve your talent. You’re going to have to get out there and try these yourself, take a few tumbles and look like a bit of a jester before you get them down.
No worries. Everyone has to start somewhere, whether it’s BMX, skating, mountain biking or anything else, and better to learn now than never learn at all. It’s time to put that shiny new BMX into action – and these videos from Kevin Porter should help you out!
