We’re going to talk about another advanced
street technique which is how to improve your ollie. Many people when learning the ollie
is that they have problems ollieing higher. A trick to ollieing higher is keeping your
front foot back further than what you would normally would and keeping your back foot
further back on the tail than what you would normally would. Often times to pop a really
high ollie, you only use the very tip of your foot to pop the tail. First let me demonstrate
an ollie with my front foot just behind the front bolts with my back foot entirely placed
on the tail.
Now let’s try that same ollie moving my front foot back further away from the bolts moving
my back foot further on the tail. Hopefully this will give us more pop and improve the
height of the ollie. Move the front foot back from the position you had it earlier move
your back foot to the very tip of the tail bend your knees more than what you did the
first time and you’ll be able to pop it much higher ollie. After practicing this trick
enough, eventually you will get use to combining the bending of your knees, the placement of
your feet to make your ollie’s higher and more effective.
