Default Am I doing Ollies right?

hey i took a vid of me doing trying out ollies, and I just want to know if I am doing them right. Is there anything else I can do to improve them? should i lean back more? I dont cause i heard you can get hurt leaning back when going off jumps. Thanks!!!!

It looks fine. Just do it a bunch once you get snow to get used to the feel of it while riding and it will be second nature in no time.

And yaaaaa.. don't ollie of jumps. Pop off with both feet equally so you stay balanced in the air.

Tempted to comment on the irony of rookie09 giving advice to expert365 but I think I'll refrain. Oh wait....

All in good fun gents!

Btw I didn't look closely but it looked like you had mostly ollies with a random straight pop and a nollie or two here and there. Do it moving on snow though, that's the only real way to get it down imo.

I like your pants.....
If you pull you knees up in the air you'll get more air time and a level landing.

I don't know for sure what I'm seeing, so I could be mistaken, but is it common for kids to keep their boots loose & unlaced like that at the top?
If so,.. Why? Wouldn't that make it harder to control the board with one's feet so loosely tied into their boot?
