not bad.. i was gonna say if you had a stiff board it would probably be a lot harder to spring up for the tailblock, but a 5 can do the job just fine. what are you having trouble with? getting the nose up all the way? it would be easier to give pointers if i could see your attempts haha

Rocking fore-aft and then popping your ollie can help you get some extra spring. Remember you want to pop up and plant the tail, not just roll up on it. You also might try just grabbing lien instead of all the way up on the nose, it doesn't look as good as a solid nose grab but it's a start.
