There are a couple ways to do an ollie.

You can use your legs only, just by lifting up your front foot, using the board like a diving board & bouncing the tail like a springboard.

Or you can rock your whole body forward then backward like described in the video.

The latter being easier when it's deep, heavy or just chopped up to shit.

I don't really think about it anymore, but when I watched the little vid there.
It looked like similar movements to this little ollie.

You have to ollie a little bit off drops with no kick, otherwise the nose drops first & you either eat shit or break your board. Possibly both.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

Is that you in that video? I thought he/you were going to leaf it down (he didn't make a turn )

I can do those ollies no problem. And I get what you're saying. The conditions/situation dictates what you can do.

Yay for this topic. Been looking about on youtube already on how to do ollies and learning a lot from it, but I think this topic(and the videos linked that I didn't find) just gave it that extra bit for me to understand it more to start practising ollies next time I'm boarding.

My ollies are still hit and miss. Most of the time they're mediocre, sometimes I totally flub it, but once in a while I get it just right and almost go orbital. Just practice, I guess.

I told my kids, "Someday, you'll have kids of your own." One of them said, "So will you."
