Default How to fall, like a PRO!


Are you afraid of going big because the falls could be treacherous? Do
you fall and get hurt? Well, today I'll show you how to acheive falls
from a nearly 1meter sidehop and completely eat s***. It's easy, and
soon you'll be hopping like this without fear in no time:
[image: http://img223.echo.cx/img223/3206/al...emeter5jd.jpg]

I've made a simple diagram to explain how it's done.

Step1: After reaching the peak of your highop(in this case, nearly 85cm)
be relaxed and prepared, Don't tighten up or you could hurt yourself.

Step 2: Begin decent and let your body relax into a natural position
holding, on, while allowing your feet to move freely.

Step 3: Just before the tire touches shove your back foo between the
frame and your crenk, while pushing down with your front foot, jamming
your back foot into a position where it can't move.

(Diagram)

Step 4: Fall backwards because your foot is stuck.

Step 5: Realise you arent wearing a hemot, unstead, an Interpol hat, and
let your skull rebound.

Step 6: Flail your legs and let the uni nail you in the crotch.


If you do these properly, you can end up witht he unicycle flipping
wildy about, or having your body do the same:

last year. Why start now?

haha nice
Good advice and style. I've not really tried that much, but from what I
have jumping on a unicycle on a trampoline is hard.

It's a backflip, off the uni, the uni got kicked forwards and out of the
way.
