HOW TO OLLIE
The first thing with an Ollie is to be
relaxed and smooth. Watch any pro skater Ollie and they're smoother than
silk sheets. When you're feeling relaxed and smooth stand on your board
with one foot on the kick and one foot in the exact middle of the board.
(Try this trick stationary first then add motion later). Then with your
back leg jam down the kick. This should but all the wheels of the board
into the air momentarily. As soon as you do this drag your front foot up
the board. Using the front kick to "catch" your front foot is a great idea
and will give you extra height. For a good part of the Ollie only the
front foot should be in contact with the board. When you come to the peak
of your Ollie shift your weight equally on both feet in preparation for
the landing. Land, bend at the knees and ride away.
