Just for the record (especially to the OP) -- as snowklinger says, ollies aren't as easy as they look. I've yet to successfully ollie a skateboard, and my snowboard ollies are still hit and miss. I have a tendency to look at my board when ollying (which is bad), and I often jump off heelside instead of straight up (which is bad), and I have trouble getting any height -- most of the time. Once in a while I manage a perfect one and it feels great. The secret: practice!

Yeah, that's me, Tracer Bullet. I've got eight slugs in me. One's lead,
the rest bourbon. The drink packs a wallop, and I pack a revolver. I'm
a private eye.
