Trickionary is back to look at another skateboarding trick. The most important skateboarding trick to know is an OLLIE because it’s the foundation to learning all the other tricks. Once you learn how to go airborne, you’ll be ready to take on 50-50s, grabs and kickflips.


What is it?

An ollie is simply when you jump into the air with your skateboard. It’s the best trick to learn because it will make you totally mobile everywhere. Instead of having to stop when you get to that one-foot curb in the road, just ollie right over it and land on the sidewalk!


Starting Stance

With your back foot on the tail and your front foot just behind the front trucks (trucks are the wheels just in case you don’t know), bend your knees and you're ready to try an Ollie. The more you you’re your knees before you jump, the higher you will go!


The Pop

Ollie TechniqueOllie Technique

The secret to the ollie is the pop. Your back foot has to push down the tail of the board and then at the moment the tail hits the ground, your back foot has to pop up and jump! So you are basically jumping using only your back foot.



Front Foot

After you pop, you are now airborne, and your board is too. Your can use your front foot to control your board and what it does in the air. You should try to level it out so that it’s nice and flat.


Elevation

To get an ollie high as you possibly can, it’s important to suck your knees right up into your stomach. The higher you pull up your feet from the ground, the higher your ollie will be.


Practice doing ollies standing still and moving. It’s also really helpful to practice on grass so you don’t slip. If you really need help because your balance is very bad and you’re slipping too much, hang onto the crossbar of a hockey net while you jump (You can also use some monkey bars).
