Seen a ton of youtube videos but yesterday i came across this one.
Looks by far the simplest to understand and shows all movements involved from start to finish.
Hope this helps a bit.
Burton Academy Trick Trips: The Ollie - YouTube
Great video! But I spot a difference compared to previous explenations:
- In the video from weight over front leg he slided the board forward in a quick movement to get his weight over back leg.
- As I read/understood suggestion is from weight over front leg to move upper body quickly to weight over back leg.
The end result is the same - weight over back leg. But the transition is different - at least as described. I havn't tried it yet. Since I am not that good at ollie it will be interesting to see if this can improve my ollies.
