I always over do one, then under do one....then lock in eventually....

No one old me about the toe...that works for me....hang my front toe, and push towards the wheel locks it in.

While learning, what helped me "lock in" was approaching at an slight angle, so kinda doing a backside nosemanual.

My front foot is slightly facing forward and not parallel, also helps with bailing since you just can walk out.

Don't be leaning your body over the front before you pop, you need to shift it forward as you're in the air instead. Also make sure you lock up your front leg when you get in or you'll collapse over the front

Doing stationary nose manuals for hours really did it for me. I used cruiser wheels so I could do it in the house. It came natural to ollie into it after I spent mucho time just building my nose manual balance. Spend 15 minutes a day working them out on a pad and some extra time at home working on your balance and they will come in no time.

im not the greatest at them but I found practicing on flat and doing curb high ollies into nose manuals helped a lot with the feel of landing in them, and if you have enough space you just hold them as long as you can.

Someone once told me that when holding the nose manual, focus on keeping the back truck in the air. It seems redundant but that mind trickery helped me become comfortable making those adjustments while balancing

I think about keeping the tail in the air, but I do it when getting into them, it does seems to make it more consistent.

You have to think of them as exactly what they are which is a weight shift from the back leg (for the pop) over to the front leg (for the position). If you didn't have a skateboard under your feet, you'd basically be doing a sidestep (I actually tell kids that a lot to help them figure out ollies). Ollieing into them on flat is harder than doing it up stuff, I'd recommend finding a low curb to start, or if you're comfortable with shove-its with no pop try and learn to hold shove-it nosewheelies on flat (since you don't pop that trick it's not as disorienting to try to figure out the jump, and without an obstacle you have less parameters hindering your grasp on the subtleties of the trick itself). Funny to hear about that other poster thinking of them as a backside trick as I've always approached mine like a frontside trick, my shoulders are open from the roll up to the dismount and I never move them as it's my hips and legs doing all the work. I push down on the nose with my front foot and the back foot provides the right amount of opposite leverage as my center of gravity remains, well, centered. Once you've gotten familiar with 'the zone' it should come easy (and it's a great trick).

Just recently got back into doing these and theyíre for sure a lot of fun.

This might be kind of obvious/cliche advice but I try to have my head directly above the front bolts.

My major problem with these is not really having the finesse to nudge out of them properly.  I frequently end up just primitively taking my front foot off the board altogether, resulting in a rather gross clickity-clack landing.

What helped me personally is having the popping foot closer to the bolts

These finally clicked for me yesterday, was able to get the pinch and keep some going for a good 7-8ft.

the head above the front bolts trick definately works, also for me it was mostly about committing and not being afraid to let the front of the nose dip close to the floor.

Certainly felt like a breakthrough, but popping into them will be a different story altogether.

I never tried these ever since one dude at my locl nearly died doing one on flat. Blood everywhere, shit was fucking nasty.

Oh, this is a good one I think, will have to try! I am good once locked in, quite comfortable holding and adjusting Nose Manuals. But I tend to be too careful when locking in and put the back truck down a lot of the times. Thinking about adding pressure or moving the weight forward does not really do the trick for me.

I've never been amazing at nosemanuals but can do them fine. The last few months though something weird is happening where I can't seem to keep my front leg straight, I kind of start collapsing downwards and my head gets way too low. Obviously makes me way less consistent at getting in and holding them. Anyone else experienced this? I feel like it might be something to do with my front foot struggling to take my bodyweight since I injured it a bit but I'm not sure.

You probably had a bad session where your leg/foot was tired and you got in to a habit of neglecting your core and shoulders, believing it was all a leg problem. I guess Iím trying to say that you might be focusing so much of your energy making sure the leg is good, itís throwing the other parts of the manual off that you usually take for granted.

Sometimes I can get into them and balance them. My problem is the exit. Idk how to cleanly pop or nudge out. I just end up doing basically a lil hippy jump when I try to nudge out. I have the same problem with bs nosegrinds.

I just dont feel that tension that gives you control to pop out. Like when I do manuals or  fs 5.0 i feels this tension or leverage so i can pop out no problem.

I've been trying for years. I'm convinced that the trick is CGI in post

Study John Dilo. 

Along with subtly shifting body weight from back to front you also need to get the back foot over the back bolts before setting the nose down.

Probably not the best tip but keeping my eye on the end of the pad helped me a lot while I was learning them. I also found it easier on slightly higher ledges, as it's more difficult to balance when you're dropping down into it.

More of a mental trick than trick mechanics, however it has helped me get pretty consistent with my Nose Manuals. Prerequisite is a solid flat ground Nose Manual. When I pop the only thing I focus on is anticipating myself on the pad, in a perfectly balanced Nose Manual. Almost like I beam into it, I completely disregard any specifics of getting into manual position. I tried the balancing back foot instead of pushing down front foot tip for more consistency from earlier in this thread, but it didnít work. Turns out when I simply skip part of the trick mentally I can do it better. I suppose I am tricking myself into relying on muscle memory more and itís a bit generic for a trick tip, but I was really surprised how well it works with Nose Manuals. Regular Manuals work completely different in terms of how I do them.

Land with more weight than youíd think in your back foot. Keep head directly above front bolts at all times. After lock in, just stare where you want to go

Easier with indys than ventures and thunders.
I kind of lean back and don't try to lift my back wheels too high off the ground. I feel it's way easier to go far with your back wheels pretty low.
Also when I was learning I found it way easier with my board backwards but I don't really know what that's about. Some geometry bullcrap I guess
