How to ollie (By Cole and Ashton)

Place your front foot in the middle of your skateboard. Next, place your back foot on the tail. Now bend your knees and then extend your back leg, popping your skateboard up. At the same time, scoop the skateboard up with your front foot, by sliding your foot up to the front bolts. (Make sure too keep your foot angled, or it wont scoop as well.) Practice sliding your foot up a few times. Once you are in the air, bend your knees to your chest and then extend them as you start falling, to land. You want to make sure that both feet are on the front and back bolts when you land. (If you dont, your board will snap.) Now we will review some common problems. One problem is when you get in the air, you will not jump with the board, and you will land with one foot on the board. Make sure you jump with your skateboard, and dont be afraid of it. Try practicing this by jumping on flat ground and pretending sliding your foot up as well. Another problem that is extremely common, is when your toes or your heel hanging off the board. MAKE SURE that you have your front foot exactly in the middle of your skateboard so that you dont spin the board. If you have any more questions, please let us know in the comments. Thank you
