1 of 2 questions then you go about your day...

OK I am riding a burton duce 2009 155, stance is 15..-15 on both bindings then I have my bindings set all the way spread out as far as can be. When I try to do a ollie it is really difficult, I know my legs are strong enough to do it I can leg curl 230 10times and squat 265pds. But when I had my stance closer I just se-saw my way into doing a ollie it really wasen't a pop because I moved my weight from the front to the back to the front of board to get air. Could it be the board not having any pop?????? I feel that I have more control over the board and when I hit a small jump feel more comfortable on the landings but cant do a ollie just coasting down a green. Also when you hit a kicker where should you be looking at the landing or straight forward, I am scared of heights but like getting air on the hill so I just deal with it.
Thanks Chris

jump higher...

stand in place and jump then pull your knees to your chest. how high can you jump? now strap into your board and ollie. the motion should be similar.

For some reason I thought you had to put a down ward force on your back/tail to pop you into the air, like if you rest your hand on a desk with your arm hanging down and raise up your fingers by forcing your palm down.

you're rocking like a 24" stance is pretty crazy IMO. but yeah, you can ollie similar to skateboard, where you apply downward pressure to the back of the board, or you can just "jump". I feel like I have a lot more control doing skateboard style ollies.

in fairness, leg curls and squats have almost zero to do with pulling out an ollie. get your ass a jump rope and start blasting those calves...

All the strength in the world won't overcome poor technique. Some of the best boarders I know are beanpoles that probaby couldn't lift shit.
