Step 1: What You Should Have

Picture of What You Should Have
Well, first of all your gonna need a bmx bike (not a mountain bike).
A man made water way or wash and a street.
For me and my friends, protection (helmets padding) optional.
your not suppose to jayhop you nees to learn to bunny hop. This way you will hop higher.And @theevilfrog just stfu he is a little kid and if you want to talk bikes than your bike is a POS. I have a stolen cherry frame, shadow vultus bars, animal jump off remix stem, fit blade 2 forks, animal headset, fit indent cranks and bearings, animal javelin front hub laced to a primo vs rim, and odyssey antigram back hub laced to a 7ka rim. My bike is about 19-20 lb
I hope your joking... J-hops get you much higher than bunny hops also stolen is a really bad make and the weight of a bike really doesn't matter. Some people have 40Ib bikes and pull of flails and stuff
