Going off jumps?

When do you ollie off a jump and when do you just go off the jump without olling off of it?

from wut i understand, you ollie when you want that extra pop. but until you get the feel for going off the jump, you just ride off of it.

you always olly

it is 'correct form'

it gives you more jump for each jump

it helps to give a more centered mass and thus stability

it is vital to ensure successful grabs and smooth rotation

(above is IMO)

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

Im going to have to agree with Paolo and say, aye, ollie makes everything look cleaner. If you just ride off the lip it looks like you are launching forward. You want that hangtime effect

Depends on the jump. I don't ollie off the ones that I go off of. I find the ollie throw's off my center of balance, but that's just partially because I suck...hah.

OK boarder has made me change my mind a bit.

It really does depend on the lip. Most resorts build the lip without much curve thus launching you forward (you will need to ollie on these). Some resorts do have a curve on the lip and more vertical which will launch you upwards (no ollie needed)..generally these lips help with back flips.

Ok guys. thanks. you helped me out alot. It seem though when ever i try and ollie off a jump i mess it all up and i just dont really get any higher or anything. I can do an ollie great on flat ground but when im on an incline i have trouble. but it sounds like im olling off the wrong jumps that i should just be going straight off of.

I also find that if I ollie off the jump it helps with my balance. If I just ride off of it I feel I have no control or say when Im in the air.

Haha. Love ya mang <3. But really, it depends on the jump. Scope it out, watch other riders, then decide if you should ollie off of it or not.

to me, ollie always.... it is just the amount that varies!

something with a big kick of a lip (like on a new hip jump) needs less 'ollie power' than your average, well worn wedge of snow
