Im looking at getting a airborne skyhawk, my question is im looking at doing some small trails and maybe some tougher stuff as my skills get better. would it be worth getting a full suspinsion bike or would the front be fine.

thanks for the help

A front suspension bike is fine until you gain more skill and experience after you have few miles behind you; you will make a better decision on what you need to progress. My advise to the beginner is to keep the initial cost low and buy used.
