I pop off of jumps. I do ollies off of natural features on slopes for fun though. I'm no expert so I usually fall a lot

I do know that a lot of pipe riders ollie off the lips. Even in skateboarding. Tony Hawk used to be called a cheater for ollying off of half pipe lips to get bigger airs. Now everyone does it.

I don't think they olly when they start getting into bigger spins though. I can't imagine how they would olly if they are already initiating a spin before take off.

i agree that popping is generally the better of the two, especially for spins. i do feel, though, that ollie-ing works better for me on straight air grabs. i feel like i have more control as i head off of the lip.

ollie-ing for spins does give a different feel and dynamic than popping also because your weight is back. this puts spins a little off axis and looks pretty cool.

big jumps are really just about big, giant, brass balls. lol

Snowolf- Everytime you write something about how to do something i have to pull apart everything you say in sections and actually imagine myself performing the move. haha. Great advice for sure. You really break it down step by step. As for the pipe...next time I wonder into there Im gonna be thinking about this thread lol. Natural halfpipes Killington halfpipe

I need more practice in the real one....

I'm still at that stage where I'm not really coming out over the lip, just sort of carving, pumping, maybe stalling at the lip if I'm feelin it, and doing small airs below the lip by ollieing. I guess the 13-15 foot walls still scare me alot.

On the flip side, I'm pretty comfortable in the 5 foot mini pipe, can throw 3's, cab 3's, 270 stall 180 in, but obviously thats a lot smaller and less "extreme"

With the real pipe, I keep seeing this mental image of myself airing out, my board coming in too deep on the top of the lip, my board slamming into it, causing me to flip forward onto my head in the tranny...I think this image is holding me back lol...am I just trippin?
Don't air out of the pipe when you first try it. It's not that hard to turn 180 when you're vertical. You don't have to pop or ollie like you do on a ground butter trick. But start small. It's usually icy and I smashed my goggles once slamming on my face. If it wasn't for the helmet, I prolly woulda broke my nose too. And I only wen't maybe 3/4 up the wall. It's the scariest and most dangerous ramp imho. But the good thing about it is that you don't have to commit to it all the way like a large jump. Make sure your edges are sharp just in case. I've seen pipes that are so icy that no one goes on them. But it's prolly because before they got that way, someone got hurt.
