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.
They're not inconsistent. Sliding the board forward is kind of a natural consequence of quickly shifting your weight back. I've never thought of specifically focusing on the sliding forward thing, but it's the same movement either way.
