|snowboardboi||Lean back more. Don't learn ollies first. Learn butters. Learn to butter on your tail. When you can butter on your tail, you lean back which helps with ollies. To ollie, just pretend you are going to butter, but instead of holding it, use your leaning back motion to bend to board and snap it up. Remember lift front leg first with back leg bent then straighten your back leg to transfer your pop up into your body. When you go flying up, bend your knees in and bring them up. This maximizes your height. You may even try going for some grabs after you get lots of air. When you are at your high point, straighten both legs to stomp the landing. Land on both feet at the same time but remember to bend your knees as you land.|

Danny Wainwright has crazy yoga legs to be able to ollie this high.

Bravo, Snowolf.. Your explanation is complicated yet simple, understandable and informative. How do you do it? I can't for the life of me explain any aspect of snowboarding in order to teach friends and family.
Just to add my 2 cents, I agree with the "learn to ollie on a skateboard" idea. I had been skating for 3-4 years before ever touching a snowboard and ollie's on a snowboard came very naturally to me.

|Qball||That is the most precise and well thought out explanation of an ollie i have ever seen.|

You have a little while before it starts to snow - I would pick up a skateboard and learn to ollie on that. If you can ollie on a skateboard you will be able to ollie on your snowboard. They're very different yet very similar.
Learning to ollie on a skateboard will help you understand the physics and mechanics, of the art, of the ollie.
