    ive been practising for almost 3 weeks and ive gotten 3 quarters of my first flare, i am 14 years old and i dont have alot of strenght but im getting flares alright, i practise almost everyday and i look on youtube and see people get like 3 flares in there first month, i was wondering how long it has taken you 2 get 1 strong flare and 2 strong flares, and when i practise my flares i make sure there clean not sloppy

    never in 4 years. it depends on the person.

    EDIT: plus i got a semi-pro friend who has about 10 years in, and he can only do 1 good flare, but he's got pro mills and an airflare and stuff. and airchair hops and stuff.

    me, i don't. i think my friend does so more than i do, but he doesn't force it unlike my other friend who posts here who got a few flares in around 3 months of focusing on that move.

    my personal approach is i don't really focus on moves like that.

    took me 1 year to completely master flares. Practice quantity and dont concentrate too hard on quality. Good luck

    By mastering do you mean just flares, i don't consider it as mastering unless you can transition into and out of it from all your moves.

    could you bboys do any clean flares in your first month cause i am really close to 1 whole 1 i just hit the floor just before i come back
    but i do my flares in the backyard on the grass which is slightly uphill so i think when i go to a flat surface it will be alot easier, i dont do it on a flat serface because there is not enough room and the emptiest room the ground hurts when i land on it, but i will be going to the mall and practise flares there in a quiet area

    flares take a while to master, ive been working on them so long, and its hard. its a type of move that u have to practice everyday, otherwise u will lose stamina and start losing the move. I worked on them for about 1.8 years and its lookin better and better, but not mastered yet

    again, it depends on the individual. some people take days others take years. but it all comes down in ur mindset. if u really want to get it, u will get it; just a matter of time.

    It depends on the individual for sure, even if people here says it took em about 2 years you shouldn't be like: Awh, 2 years screw that im going into something else...
    It's very different, some master them in 2 months, some in 2 years. It's not like it's guaranteed it will take you 2 years...

    I personally don't know flares or any such moves. But, one of my friend (not such a good friend) told me it took him two years to do up to maximum 4 flares yet, I believe more practice makes more perfect. Since, you do regular practice (unlike my friend) it may take you lesser time.
