Beginners Guide - The Ollie
The Ollie is the most important trick to learn for a skateboarder. It is the essential key necessary to progress onto learning flip, aerial and grind tricks. Once mastered, the ollie opens up all the possibilities of skating.
- Position your back foot over the back tail of the skateboard, your front foot just before halfway and bend your knees.
- In one fluid motion, slam the tail down into the ground with your back foot and slide your front foot towards the other end of the skateboard whilst extending your legs in an upward movement. TIP: you may get better results if you slide your foot up on its side.
- Raise your legs up allowing the board to naturally move up with you.
