BEFORE YOU START

Only try out tricks in spaces away from the road - parks, skate parks, or even the back garden are the best places for riding your scooter.

THE BUNNY HOP

A must-learn trick, and the basis for lots of more advanced scooter tricks. Master this before trying out the others!

STEP BY STEP

  1. Start moving with a single push - you don?t want to be going too fast or too slow
  2. Hold your handlebars tightly and make sure your feet on the deck
  3. Bend your knees, then jump
  4. As you jump, pull the scooter up with your arms and tuck in your knees to get it off the floor
  5. Try jumping higher each time as you gain confidence!

THE 180

Slightly more daring than the bunny hop, this trick involves turning 180 degrees in the air and landing backwards.

STEP BY STEP

  1. Make sure you've mastered the bunny hop before attempting this trick
  2. Start moving, again doing one push so you aren't going too slow or too fast
  3. Grab both handlebars tightly and make sure both feet are on the deck.
  4. Just like a bunny hop, bend your knees and jump, but this time use your body weight to spin in the air, turning your head as you jump to help pull both you and the scooter around. You can spin either way when doing a 180, so just spin whichever way feel natural.
  5. Practice jumping higher and spinning in the air faster to set you up for other spinning tricks.

THE 360

Now that you've managed to turn 180 degrees, it's time to for a full rotation!

STEP BY STEP

  1. You'll need to be moving a little faster for this trick, so give yourself a couple of pushes to gain more momentum
  2. Grab your handlebars tightly and make sure both feet are on the deck
  3. Just like the 180, you'll want to turn your head and bring your full bodyweight around as you turn in the air. Remember, you'll spin twice to end up facing in the same direction, so you'll need to jump higher and turn faster!
  4. Remember to bend your knees as you land the 360, so you'll have more control over the scooter as you continue to travel forwards

THE TAIL WHIP

Add this cool trick to your repertoire and impress all of your friends and a family!

STEP BY STEP

  1. First, you'll need to have mastered the bunny hop - go back and get it absolutely right before trying this one!
  2. Before you try to flip your scooter deck around in the air, practice flipping it around as you stand still. Use your arms to move the deck around (a bit like a mixing bowl!) and use your foot to kick the deck around.
  3. Once you're feeling confident enough to try it while moving, push once or twice and get the right amount of momentum, then combine a big bunny hope with your 'kick and flick' technique.

THE BAR SPIN

Tougher than it looks, this pro trick is for scooter riders who are ready for more advanced tricks.

STEP BY STEP

  1. First, you'll need to have mastered the bunny hop, so practice that one thoroughly before you give this one a try.
  2. Next, you'll need to get your hand position right. Take care not to grab your handlebars from the underside at any point to try and spin your bars. Instead, bring one of your hands underneath your forearm then do the twist. This technique is much easier and safer. Try practicing spinning your bars standing still first so you can get the hang of your hand movements.
  3. Once you're feeling confident enough, build up some momentum with a push or two, then do a bunny hop and give your bars a spin. Just remember, don't try spinning them like a car wheel - reach one hand underneath the other and pull the opposite handlebar around.
