    Hey guy's, Just really need some tips for these cuz whenever I try halfcab nose manny's my wheel just stops and I loop out & then when I try 180 to fakie nose manny's I fall foward and loop out the same way I do with the halfcam nose manny's.
    Some tips would be great!

    It's honestly all practice and finding your balance point. I suggest that you have regular nose manuals on lock before attempting fakie.

    Ok so for 180 to fakie nose manuals, start by doing pivot to fakie nose manual. Let's you get the feel and less likely to eat it. Then start doing the actual hop and practice.
    For half cab, start by doing them really wide. Like its hard to describe by almost only like spin 90 and try to carve in a nose manual the rest of the spin. Start taking them back farther till you do a full 180 half an to nose manual

    I'm guessing you're asking about doing a halfcab and landing in a nosemanual? If so, I suggest you try to carve as little as possible when you jump up to do the halfcab, just turn the wheel a bit. Rather than actually spinning smoothly, try to kind of pull yourself around. It's kind of hard to explain but if you manage to do this, you will be able to land in a straight nosemanual (I suggest you try hang5's first though) instead of always being forced to do a 180 out of it.
