How do you jump? Which leg takes the majority of your weight? How do you get the tail to pop correctly? Any help is great. New slayer here.
1. Keep your body straight (hips and shoulders in line with the board) 2. Put most of your weight on your back foot. 3. Keep your back foot straight and pop with the ball of your foot keeping it as close to the middle of the kick (horizontally) as possible. This also makes jumping easier.
(8/29/16) 6:34am sesh and I was practicing my ollies and for the first time in about a week str8 of practice, I landed them consistently! While moving AND over a curb! My best advice is to JUMP with the idea of bringing your knees to your chest. NOT bringing your chest to your knees. Don't rush your ollie out of fear. Airtime, and sliding your foot keeps the board level for better landing. (BEST ADVICE FROM YA BOI) Practice. Practice. Practice.
Ps. Your asking the right questions :) always keep this sort of analysis in mind when learning it will help you alot.
i think u should definitely search for braille skate 'how to ollie' on youtube i learned it with their vids greetings from germany👋👋
One if the most important things to commit to muscle memory is keeping your body in line with the board, unless trick required something else. To jump, make sure you are using your legs, not your back, and when landing, your weight should distribute equally between your feet.
Your back foot has most of your weight And when you pop it you slide your front foot forward but tilt it at the same time
watch the vid
Put all your wait on your back foot and keep it on the tail of your bored
The three main things you should practice for the ollie are the pop, the flick, and the jump. What I mean is, practice each part individually and be comfortable with it before attempting the trick. Start with the pop. Using your back foot with the ball of your foot on the edge of the tail, push all your weight onto your back foot. You want to put enough weight so that all four wheels come up when you pop. The next step is the flick. Practice sliding the outside toes of your front foot towards
You need to hit the tail with your backfoot then slip your frontfoot up the griptape
Right when the tail is popes move your right foot move your left foot scraping the side of your foot diagonally up
I don't really think if it as a jump but rather a pop, sliding your front foot up and tucking your legs in with the board

Just push the tail down
(Contd.) The nose. Make sure you are comfortable with these two steps as they are crucial to getting the tail to come up into the air. The final step is the jump. What you want to do to practice it is do the pop, then the flick, and then jump with only your back foot as high as you possibly can, and land with two feet on the board. This can seem a bit scary at first, but if you break the ollie down into these steps and practice them individually you can put them all together, and learn the ollie

Your weight must be on the center of the board so you have max stability when you pop it hard
Use your upper body by swinging your arms
Back foot takes more weight
It is all about the timing when you pop that back of the board and when you slide up your front foot, make sure your practice the timing and commit with both feet.
The leg you pop is the one u jump with
You jump mostly with your back foot. But important to bust the misnomer - You're NOT jumping off the ground once your tail hits there ground! Instead you're jumping while the board is flat (all wheels on ground) and then tapping (popping) the tail hard as your back foot is about to leave the contact. The jump happens BEFORE the pop.
You want to kinda slam on the tail and lift the foot you slammed the tail with right after you slammed the tail (a lot of slamming)
Jump with right foot and do your left foot to above!
For your back foot make sure you pop with the toes and not the whole foot
Jump equally off each foot, pop through the tail.
When people say jump, litterally jump! try to loosen up your body, if your body is stiff it can affect the timeing and flow, don’t think just do it, instead of thinking about It as a multi step trick, think of it as just an Ollie. thinking less eventually makes it more second nature, you become more comfortable. Jump simultaneously as you pop, jump high even if you don’t land. this will get you to pop harder. Make sure your legs are straight, shoulders, arms, and head when getting them higher.
Both legs should be equally distributed in weight, weight matters, if you lean back too far your board will fly and leave your feet, lean too far in front and you will fall on your knees.try finding your sweet spot for you front foot, wherever that foot carves and flows in the dips of your board, sometimes that means putting your foot closer to the bolts and angleling it until you get more comfortable with aiming for higher ollies.

Pop with the back leg and put about 75% of your weight in the back and then level it out Ok
