Anybody know the name of the trick/position I was talking about in the last post? Here is a photo incase you don't want to click the YouTube link I posted:



Just like in the photo. I'm rolling forward and in a circle. Been working on it now for a couple weeks, just not sure what to call it?

Ok thank you. I figured that it might be called a front yard as well. For me, front yard means when the standing leg is behind the bars and the balancing leg is in front scuffing like this:



In the version I'm working on, both legs are in front of the bars and no scuffing of the tire just rolling forward in a gradual circle. I thought maybe this version I'm working on has a different name but front yard fits 👍

It has been a long time since I ride with another person, so I tend to forget the names of tricks.

A tail whip.  Brand new to Flatland and been wanting to do one since I was 10 (cough that's 25 years ago).
I nearly have it, but for some reason I get stuck on what to do with my feet when I catch the frame with my left foot and lose my balance. >:(

Hi!


Its so good to have someone to talk about the tricks, since I didn't know a lot of people who ist doing flatland. Since Im new I am learning some beginner tricks. I am working on Bar Turn, X-Up and Tabletop. It ist really fun and every day I am learning a little bit more. Also I wanted to thank all of you for the great tipps for the stands.


good luck for you guys :)
