Wow- this is the only section of this list that two different tricks are listed together.  It probably has something to do with the fact that these two tricks are VERY similar in appearance and how they are done.

It helps to be able to do a pretty decent bunnyhop as well as be comfortable with pogos before attempting these, as well as being confident with doing endos.  Either one of these qualify as a REALLY cool looking trick!  When you get better you will be able to do either of them forever- and grasshoppers will be able to be rolled forever on the front wheel...  Down hill and such.

While grasshoppers are the easier of the two tricks in my opinion you should try BOTH ways just in case crickets end up being easier for you.  NOTE:  In the video Grasshoppers are presented first.

GRASSHOPPERS...

VARIATIONS:  Instead of grabbing the front brakes HARD at the peak of one of your endos- Gently squeeze the brakes and try to roll backward on the front wheel.  While you are rolling take a foot off the rear peg and roll on one foot.

CRICKETS:

Another way to ride out is to go into pogos on the back wheel and ride out of them.
