the only pointer i have for u is: watch lots of video...and find a local rider who is better than u so that he can give u tips not only on riding but on the maitinence of ur bike, and just ride because u like doing it, not because u wanna be a million dollar pro rider...so have fun and good luck

Rules of thumb:

1) If the lip of a jump looks unstable, watch someone else try it first.

2) If the lip of a jump looks vertical, it'll still launch you in length. Physics, Physics.

3) Don't overshoot the landing. Once your front tire clears the landing, push your bike down and start pumping for the next jump (if you're doing rhythms)

Yep, start out on some small table tops. Remember, have some fun and work your way up to bigger doubles. Don't forget, you need to learn to walk before you can run!
