right before you brake, like a split second before you do literally slam your stomach to your tank (or lean your weight forward) and your initial brake should be pretty hard but not too hard.

Dont slam your stomach into the tank, it is more of a fluid motion of smoothly pulling the brake and slightly pulling your ass off the seat. Get up to a 30mph roll or so and start the motion of leaning foward and smoothly pulling the brake. Dont use all 4 fingers, 2 is enough. Take small steps, each time using a little more brake until you feel the rear tire start to lift.

DONT double brake. by that I mean dont do a poppa stoppie(just grabbing a handful of brake to get the back tire up)and release the brake and then pull again. I have seen so many people go over by doing that.
