Hooray for content creators!
As a person that had my childhood before internet was a thing, it sometimes hits me how amazed I am over how I've been able to learn to ride and do a few tricks on a unicycle, thanks to a person that I've never met and who lives on the other side of the world!
I just love it when you can learn stuff because people have been sharing their know-how on the net, and even more so when the content is of high quality and well structured. Just like Chris Huriwai's UniQuest-series on his YouTube channel PrettyGoodChannel. And it's free! With the possibility to support through patreon.

So, what makes me think that Chris' content stand out from the rest of the "learn to unicycle" stuff you find when searching YouTube? Well, one thing that trigger my lust for learning is that he arranged his videos in a leveling tree. That way you always have tricks to learn that should be pretty much in reach to nail.
