the progression of a trick- from start to finish, and onward.

ever since I got into bmx about 5 years ago, the main trick that I've always wanted to learn, and do properly, were tabletops and inverts. not janky little bike tweaks. full, 90 degree flat, Vic Murphy approved, Tables. ever since I've tried learning them about a year and a half ago, I've taken pictures every step of the way. enjoy.

still trying to learn em-

Oh man. Seeing stuff like this just fires me up.
Amazing moves and pics. You've got to be so stoked.
Get working on that Judge! It seriously looks like you could pull it off.

Re: the progression of a trick- from start to finish, and onward.

as for tips- learn the arm motions first. they are the easiest. if you're right foot forward, you wanna pull then punch the right side of your handlebar right into your armpit. it helps to keep the right hand sweaty so you can throttle grip the bar in.left hand just pushes down a bit, but not in. next step is to try to get the toptube of the frame to bonk you in the shin. when your frame is to your forward foot shin, try and snap your leg althe way in, as if trying to kick yourself in the asscrack. try to move your backfoot leg in doing almost a scooping motion. also, pushing your shin down over your frame creates a leverage point to flip your bike over. notice in the fist couple pics how I was all arm, and just bowlegged and awkward? try to avoid that by crunching your legs in. and if you feel your feet slip off the pedals, let it happen. that's a good sign haha. if I missed anything I'll try to remember to post up what I missed.
