Stoppies are your basic trick and probably should be the first thing to learn. There are various techniques depending on your riding level, so I will assume that this is for a Beginner level rider:
Since this is for beginners you will want to start out small as it will feel awkward at first...like anything you start to learn.
1.) Accelerate your bike to about 25mph-30mph and compress the front brakes slowly until you start to feel the back of the bike rise up. You may also want to pump the front brakes at least twice and then apply more pressure on the front brakes as the forks start to decompress.
2.) Continue with the 1st step multiple times until you become comfortable with the height.
3.) One you become comfortable with the height, you can then move on to rolling stoppies.
4.) Follow Step one, however you will need to accelerate up to 30mph-50mph. You will control your height by fluctuating your brake pressure. You can steer by locking your elbows and lean/steer with your shoulders. Steering is the hardest part to learn, but with lots of patients and practice you will soon be rolling 100+ Feet.
