If you have just bought a BMX bike then it is a really good idea to try to learn some easy BMX tricks, but you should really learn on a proper course. It is quite easy to hurt yourself if you do not know what you are doing so you also need to get some proper safety equipment. It is very easy if you are not an experienced rider to fall off even doing easy BMX tricks and it can be very easy to hurt yourself. The main thing that you need to buy is a proper helmet. If you injure your head it can be very dangerous and a good helmet that is actually made for BMX riding is one of the first things that you should buy. The next things that you should buy are elbow and knee protectors. They are the most likely body parts to get injured if you fall off and you should not start to practice until you have bought them.
If you are learning at a course then you will not only get instruction on how to do the BMX tricks, you should be able to find out what is the best safety equipment to buy as well. The instructor should be able to tell the best places to buy the equipment and how much you will have to spend. There should be a local bike store that will have what you need. Even if you are just doing easy BMX tricks it is still easy to injure yourself if you do not know what you are doing.
If you cannot find any safety equipment stores near you then a good place to look is EBay. They will have a good selection but you need to know what you want before you buy. Another place to look is on the BMX websites. They often do reviews of safety equipment and you can also get some great tips on how to do some easy BMX tricks.
You could also join your local BMX club. They are great places to learn and to meet other BMX owners and riders. You can pick up some really great tips there about the best tricks for beginners and they are usually really great places for new owners to go to for advice. So if you are a new BMX owner then take time to buy all of the right safety equipment and learn some great tricks.
