I am okay at skateboarding but I can't land an ollie. My brother is awesome at skateboarding. He can always land ollies and he has a tons of hot chicks. How can I learn to ollie so I can get girls too?
Hey smartalec2004The best advice I can give you for landing an ollie is to keep practicing, watch what other skaters (including your brother) do and remember to bend your knees. You can also check out Simon's step by step guide to landing an ollie. But don't expect your love life to change just because you've perfected the most basic skateboard trick. I know more about playing sports than playing girls, but I can tell you that landing an ollie doesn't automatically mean you'll be landing a "ton of hot chicks" like your brother is. Your bro's skating might have something to do with the "hot chicks" that surround him, but they're probably also attracted to his looks, his personality or his new Element Skateboards' hat.
Landing an ollie doesn't mean you're suddenly going to have girls, who are dying to touch your skateboard, draped all over you. It might get you some attention, but it won't be enough to keep a girl around for the long term (unless you're looking for a ditzy skater betty who's got less brains than a set of trucks). You're better off finding a girl who's attracted to YOU, not your ability to jump a curb on your board. Besides, you should be wanting to land an ollie for the rush a skater gets from perfecting a skate trick, not just so you can meet hot chicks. If you only want to land an ollie so you can meet girls, than you likely won't be successful at either.
