Riding with your back facing forwards.
How do it
Riding backwards, i.e fakie. A vital skill. You should learn to fakie before proceeding to the 180 turn. Practice on a flat surface or slight slope. Make a habbit of looking backwards, innocent bystanders will thank you for it :)
1.
Ride up to an obstacle, a wall or a pole, at medium speed. Prop yourself against it.
2.
Push into the wall to build up inertia for the backwards movement.
3.
Push off. Keep your arms straight and tensed AT ALL TIMES, your knees bent and your butt over the rear wheel.
4.
Ride backwards, reverse pedaling a tiny bit faster then the hub movement. If you feel yourself falling to the side, move your opposite knee outwards for balance.
