    Default Just another victim of the ollie :: HELP

    Hey guys. I'm glad i've found this site. Hopefully, i'll be able to learn from you all. Anyway, i got my board yesterday from Tactics. I was really stoked. Went out and practiced my ollies for the WHOLE DAY. Of course they suck ass. This morning i tried them again and it's the same problem.

    My back foot wont come off the ground for some reason. I tried popping hard and fast but then nothing really happens. My fromt foot seems alright, I mean it slides up until the nose and it comes off the ground. Really having a bad time with my back foot.

    Im gonna post a video of me doing ollies and put the link here


    Im also new here.

    Skate safe everyone

    You will learn , it doesnt just happen. when you first start skateboarding it takes a while until you can ollie , everyones different you have to be determined to do it. it can take a year until you can get a good ollie or months its really not easy if you dont do youre best. you just have to keep trying.

    Did you just start skating? I would take some time to get use to the board! Like learn to push, Stop, turn, etc.

    Yeah man. I just got my board recently. You think i'll improve just by skating everywhere? Cruising?

    Definitely. The more comfortable you are on your board, the more confident you will be and tricks will be easier to learn (because of your board control).
