At Rampfest, our BMX Coaching is focused on building basic, fundamental skills that will help you be confident on your bike all the time - whether it’s at the Skate Park, Race Track, Trails or just bunny hopping off gutters (that’s always fun!).
We believe that by initially focusing on the basics, you’ll find it easier to learn tricks and more complicated skills down the line - with a lower chance of injury.
Above all, we believe that BMX is supposed to be FUN. Our coaches love riding just for the fun of it - and we want you be be as stoked on riding as we are.

The following stages are a guide - these outline the basic steps in skill progression that we follow. It’s not a rigid system or a linear progression. It’s flexible to the needs and skill level of each individual. It’s very possible (and quite likely) that in different skill areas, you’ll sit at different places on the scale. As such, you’ll work on these different skill areas at the appropriate level.
These are the absolute basics you need to know to be able to navigate a Skate Park safely. If you have these under control, we can progress from there! These include:
Once we've got the basics under control, it's time to progress into some more challenging stuff! Here, we split the skills we'll practice into 2x basic categories:
These basic skills will help you get comfortable jumping and getting airborne on the bike!
Basic Jumping Skills
Basic Airing Quarter Pipes (we start below the coping)
First off, we’ll start learning tricks that promote good bike control skills. At first, we’ll be learning everything “fly out” – jumping straight onto the deck rather than a landing. These tricks would include:
Now that you’re a bit more use to jumping and ramps, we can start really using them! We’ll learn to jump over boxes, control our landings and flow into the next obstacle.
Intermediate Jumping Skills
Intermediate Airing Skills
We’ll build on the tricks that we learned in Stage 2 and start adding in some more complicated ones. This will include taking our hands and feet off the bike. As always, we’ll start small and work our way up!
This would include:
By now, you’ll have a good grounding in Jumping and using a Skate Park. This means it’s time to start using bigger obstacles, going faster and learning how to really maximise our air time off each ramp.
We also start working on some more technical park skills, like:
With our tricks we’ve already learned, we can start bringing them to other parts of the skate park – learning them over box jumps and in airs.
This means that within each trick, we need to learn to really control them and prepare for a smooth landing on the ramp.
We also start learning more advanced tricks like:
Now, we start combining everything. We learn how to link lines through the park with multiple tricks and combinations all the way through.
We work on doing our more advanced tricks over bigger jumps and a variety of obstacles – like hips, spines and in airs. Depending on where you do it, each trick has slight variations – for example, a 360 over a spine is quite different to over a box jump.
By learning to combine everything we’ve already learned, you’ll be ready to ride competitions if you choose to.
Alternatively, you’ll be able to just keep progressing, having fun and pushing your limits on your own!
