mabey your just not ment for 2 wheels:p how long you been riding?? and dont just jump you cant just hit just jumps go ride some trails like woods, rocky, sand then you get better try and get air of natural jumps and get a bigger kicker man 2 ft what are you jumping a barbie car?!:D

yeah, from what it sounds... your new to riding in general.... you cant just hop on a bike and expect to start hitting jumps and hanging off the side of your bike.... like redbull said, go ride some trails, sand, dirt... just ride around for a few weeks... .get some practice riding.... then.. when you are comfortable on your bike... then try hitting some tables... then doubles... but dont go right into jumping if youve never really ridden much

lol exactly what these guys are saying, u cant just jump on a bike and think your gonna be a pro rider in a week...
The guys out there jumping 80ft+ jumps every week have been riding for many many years. Most of the best guys started racing when they were really young, thats where you get the best bike skills from.

yeah, you dont even have to race necceceraly... but go to a local track, and go some time when there arent many.. or even no people riding there... (well.. dont ride alone.. but you get the idea) and just start riding the track... practice cornering, small jumps, whoops, etc.. just riding around a good mx track will teach you some decent riding skills... practice there as much as you can... just learn how to ride a dirtbike good.. from there, then you start jumping
