For years people have made jokes that Ryan must have a barspin button on his bike because he does so many of them. Inspired by that, he and his brother decided to make it a reality. It took a few tries to get the system done, and the button is in his brother’s hand and not on the bike, but they make it happen, and even get a double in!
Ryan Nyquist and TJ Ellis break down how to do this basic trick and show some great examples of how to put it to use.
Ryan Nyquist is single handedly bringing back the Rocket Air! Check out as Ryan shows you a bunch of different variations and schools some of the younger rats that don’t appreciate the classic!
“Ryan Nyquist decides it’s time to dig deep and find an obscure trick—a Rocket Air! Time for a lesson! Watch Ryan unleash a variety of Rocket Air combos on quarterpipes, box jumps and the Freedom 40 dirt trails outside Santa Cruz, CA. The key to Rocket Airs is getting your feet on the back pegs while in the air and then adding your own variation of bar spins and other tricks. After brushing off a few tough critics at the skatepark Ryan ends with an epic Neil Armstrong sendoff! Neil…Rockets…Get it?” – Network A
Zak Earley gives you a little help with one of the most classic BMX tricks of all time, while Ryan Nyquist struggles to get one fired out.
While filming for the last episode of Getting Awesome that dropped, Marc from Permagrin Films pulled out his crazy GoPro rig that has a ton of the cameras synched up to produce this crazy 3D like effect. This video is almost a behind the scenes look at the filming for that episode but crazier. Take a peek!

Ryan Nyquist meets up with Gary Young, Corey Bohan, Heath Pinter, Anthony Napolitan, Big Daddy, Mike “Hucker” Clark, TJ Ellis, Luke Parslow, Cory Nastazio and more for two full sessions at the trails behind Heath Pinter and Stephen Murray’s houses. This is a hell of a good day!
“Ryan Nyquist touches down in southern California for a epic day of dirt trail riding with the boys! Kicking things off in Heath Pinter’s backyard, Ryan’s excited to hit a spot he’s seen plenty of footage from but hadn’t yet had a chance to ride. Cruising through the morning everyone has a good time before breaking for lunch. Ryan packs up and continues on to Stephen Murray’s house. Stephen has created a BMX dirt playground in his backyard with plenty of lines and an insane off the balcany to mega dirt jump set up! Ryan rides hard, stomps a few tricks and even takes a few slams. If you’re not limping a bit after a day like this you we’re trying hard enough!” – Network A
Learn how to do absolutely nothing this week in this new episode of Getting Awesome… Or learn how to rip those feet and hands off like a champ. All I want to know is why we can’t get more footage of Allan Cooke these days? Dude still kills it!
“Professional BMX’ers Ryan Nyquist and Allan Cooke teach you how to do nothing and still get awesome! Nothing’s require you to remove both your hands and feet from the bike at the same time. Allan discovered that the trick is to take your feet off first and then let go of the bars. When you get those down try a few variations like Ryan’s Nothing to Barspin!” – Network A
Where Ryan comes up with this stuff is beyond me, but it’s hilarious. Take a little trip in slow mo and fast forward for this new episode of Getting Awesome.
“Professional BMX rider and Rad Dad Ryan Nyquist opens the door to his world and that shows balancing daily life with two young boys is no easy task. With too much energy and plenty of toys, it looks like a tornado ran through the house! Just when Ryan gives up hope on getting a BMX session in for the day he finds a magic remote! With slow motion and fast forward in full effect Ryan finds the time to clean the house, speed over to Scotts Valley trails, and throw down some mean tricks in slow mo.” – Network A
