    The original post is 7 years old though.

    If you have questions, ask away- a fair few freestyle guys with heavy technical knowledge post on here so between them all they should be able to come up with an answer.

    No, that's not freestyle
    Freestyle involves caspers, 50/50 stands (not grinds), pogos, etc. etc.

    If it doesn't have an ollie, then it's most likely freestyle; the tricks you posted aren't freestyle, they're street

    ^ I'd start with just trying railstands, rail flips, 50/50 stands, caspers, some shoves
    those are good starts

    I agree.

    And to speed up the time needed, I suggest to do what I did back in 1974: practice stationary tricks EVERY night before going to sleep. Except for the flips of course.
    That should do it.
    And if you like manuals/wheelies, you can also start with those. However, not too many different tricks at the same time.
    But make sure that you cannot fall against hard objects. And that you are able to grab something like a chair to keep your balance in the beginning, until you're familiair with the new positions.
