Ollieing and hitting booters are completely different mechanically and mixing them is a recipe for disaster except when you know you are too slow, its too late to bail, and you can rip an ollie to get you over the knuckle, but chances are its gonna be ugly.

You really can't beat the SA vids for learning how to approach a kicker. The setup, and setup turn are key points as you learn to take off the lip both heelside and toeside.
