how big is "pretty big". the fact that you dont know how to ollie yet says world to me. an ollie is not only good for getting higher, a good ollie has a level off quality that will help you stick many landings. start practicing ollies whenever you can and you will see your kickers improve a bunch.

To ollie, you need to lean back on your tail, like a butter, and then spring in an up/forward movement. It will feel akward at first, but with time it will become more fluid and you will feel better lift from your ollies.
