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.

i know the basic mechanics of it just not to good at it and cant do it to well when moving...by big i mean about 5 feet high launch ramp, 10 ft table top, and a rather steep receving ramp(bout 45 degrees)
