Before you jump into the list, a few disclaimers:
We all have different skills. So the exact difficulty level assigned to each trick will most likely be different. What I choose for them. But, to be as realistic as possible. I’ve made this rating based on some of my experience. But most of the general opinion/consensus of how difficult each trick. It seems to the average BMX rider.
Omit the order, I avoided mixing ground tricks with air tricks. I put ground tricks first and air tricks last. Because it makes more sense to get complete control of your movements and balance on the ground. Before taking the more considerable risk of trying them from 10 feet in the air.
Also, there are some specific cases like Bunny Hop. Here’s #4, you can find other tricks down the list that you think are much easier than the Bunny Hop. But #4 seems to be the one because it’s the fundamental trick you’ll need to get familiar with. Be able to squeeze in a lot of other tricks.
