So i've noticed some tricks that are really easy for me are hard for other people, but some easy tricks they do are really hard for me. I've noticed a few people talking about how they practiced for hours strait to learn how to feeble where as when i first got pegs i landed a feeble my first try, was landing more than i didn't by the end of the first day, and got them down within a week. Some people say one handers and x-ups are really easy but i can't do them well at all! What are some tricks you find easy but are hard for other people and vice versa?

Hmm truckdrivers, barspins, crank arm grinds, tooth hangers, and no footers.

Honestly tricks are only hard if you arent physically capable of completing it or if you dont know enough about it to go for it. Sometimes it can be that people are too scared to do certain things. I have to try hard to do a truck, but i can do it. It didnt take me long to land it. I landed one a week after i learned to 180 bar. And the 180 bar didnt take any time at all. I think tailwhips are a bitch and a half to learn mainly because i never really had a proper experience learning with them. I think some things hold you back. Like sometimes your frame's geo isnt very good for the tricks you are trying. I learned tooth hangers in 5 minutes after i stopped being scared. Crank arm grinds are hard if you cant get the lean and angle right. There are a few tricks that are hard for certain people. Some people just get better with practice. Some people get stuff just by watching. Some people are just good at understanding the tricks.

The moral of this story is things are only as hard as you make them. If you don't land a trick, keep trying. If you continuously fail for an hour. Come back to it after thinking about it.

Crooks are a turd if you dont alter your bike accordingly. Big ass tires and low bottom brackets and anything over 25 teeth in sprocket sizes can make locking crooks in a turd. When i did crooks i had a long metal primo binary up front and a 2.1 tire in the rear. I stopped with them because they werent fun enough and i never got to ride rails for too long.

i follow you on instagram and your barspins are ugly, plus youve posted a vid of you trying to truck and u 180 bard, never seen a video of you doing a truck, dont really think you can do them, really sounds like your talking out your ass saying u found trucks easy when your barspins are shotty at best.

Rail rides, smiths, oppo 180/360 fakies, nose manual firecracks and hopping really high also wallrides with pegs. alot of friends of mine cant get them without pegs and dont get how i can manage it.
But i cant X-UP, Bar spin, or 360 to fakie in a quarter, but i can manage them fine with full rotation on a steep bank

Actually he specifically said he thinks trucks are hard for him.. he can do them but they are hard.. and you haven't actually ridden with him so why do you feel the need to call him out and try to embarrass him ? Maybe if you rode with him often and KNEW he was talking out of his ass then you could.. but you don't.... so you shouldn't...

This, but i could always get 360, soon as i want to rotate more than a 360 I would stop at just over three, no matter how hard i tried I wouldnt get any further. I think it was in the mind more than anything, like making that extra rotation just felt off

real nice calling a person out and first off, ALL of my instagram vids i have had to do the line about 50 damn times because my brother isnt good at filming.

Yes, my barspins are ugly, i dont care though. I'm not riding to impress you. They still count. And personally i find it offensive that if you havent seen me ride in person, you can't judge that.

I have done truckdrivers, many times. I will try to get a vid on here as soon as i can of a good one. And as of lately (if that is the video you are talking about) i havent ridden as much as normal. I am busy with plays, cutting grass, Madrigal choir, school stuff, college stuff, etc. I'm sorry if my riding isnt perfect. But saying that i cant do them is another story.

And even though my barspins arent pretty, i do catch clean (the first 3 lines i do,, the rest im fed up with my brother fucking up on instagram)

I never said my barspins were a crowd pleasing trick either. I don't find them to be the most fun. I ride for me, not you.

UPDATE: Just checked my instagram. The last time i have posted anything with a truck in it was an attempt. It was IN THE WINTER when you cant ride everyday. And if you are referring to my last video, it WAS a 180 bar. I didnt call it a truck.

I've been practicing crankflips but not dialed just quite yet. I kinda have the feeling for one-footed or no-footed can cans, but it's just the commitment that gets me all the time in riding. Also, it took me a while to learn 180's off of things, and I still struggle doing 180's up things. As for 3's, I still struggle pretty badly with those. Footjam tailwhips are quite easy for me, but still not super duper consistent. Oh, and some days are just on and off for me, it's really bipolar. Like as of the moment, I run pegs but I haven't practiced grinds seriously in months and I literally can barely grind a 1' obstacle.. It's sad.

Hang 5s seems like a bitch, but i hae only been pratiing them fro like 4 serious days hahah.
Hop barspins seem difficult to me, well scary id say.
As i learned how to 180 faki out in 1 month of riding, when i firstgot my real bm (i could bunny hop a mtb bike so i just went for triks).
360 seemed really hard, but the following orning that maximus gave me some advice i landed a few, so id say they were easy for me lol.

180 up things takes a while, just hook that back end up and the rest will come... and I still can't legit 3 flat, so don't worry if they take a while either. Try em over a hip, really helped me get the back end up a bit. And everybody has crap days

I found stalls easy, 180s have been easy for me aswell. Foot/fast plants (which ever is the one where you hop, then take your foot off) easy also. I really struggle on things like bars, whips, and air tricks like tuck nos and turndowns an stuff though, but I don't really try them at all. I really suck at riding ramps though, same with skating. Just don't like ramps haha

I find 360 to fakies on quarters easy as hell until I start throwing them on quarters over 6 feet tall or airing them out as high as I can, same goes for 540 airs on quarters .......some years I have no footed can cans dialed then some years I can't get them for shit

There's a video on my Instagram of Max doing a truck. Check it out. My Instagram name is in my bio.

Whether he's the best at bars or not, there's no reason to be a dick like you are being. I'm sure I could find a flaw in your riding too, asshole.

Smiths are pretty easy for me but getting out of them is hard.
360s are hard too. I still can't get clean 3s.
I can get really long x-up rides and they're really fun.
^Funny thing about that is, I can't x-up.
I can rocket manual bar really well.
Uhhh... I really really suck at nose bonks and nose manuals.
I'm also really bad at hitting dirt jumps.

Tailwhips out of banks are STUPID , barspins seem harder than tailwhips , nose manuals , no footers. And every grind , 100% NOT my thing at the moment.

I can 180 basically everything but over rails and down huge sets , I can spin pretty good just actual "land or not" tricks arent my thing.

Okay, that's the video that took 1000 times to film because my brother is bad at filming. I did the truck a billion times for the video and by the 20th try they werent how I normally do them. The main reason I kept it is because it put me in the right direction for the line.

Trucks are pretty easy. Honestly if you can 180 bar and 360, you can truck.

All I do is spin harder on a 180 bar and then I truck. No joke.

Whips on the other hand, just don't like me. I have probably landed 50 or so in 15 years of riding, and only a handful were clean to the pedals. Whips are bastards for me.
