    3) Try: Moving your front foot closer to the bolts to start out with, and possible (when sliding) slide your foot a bit more outwards then inwards.

    Gotta get better grip on it..
    Are you doing a "rocket ship ollie?" If so, slide your foot more, and put more weight on that part of the board. How many stairs are you trying?

    If you already know how to Ollie but want to get higher, I use to try doing ollies on a mattress or a cushion. I think it helps you pop harder. It worked for me so at least give it a try.

Sorry for this, but any ideas?
    pop the board straight down and make sure when you slide you dont tilt your foot

    Is there a tip any of you have on sucking your knees up more? I'm very consistant on my ollies but they're just not like leveling out 100% it's more like 90% Is it because my knees arent up enough?

    Sounds like you're not popping fast enough. Ball of back foot centered on the back of the tail. Pop straight down and lift so fast that you're actually jumping first before the tail hits the ground.

    Hey, I just started skateboarding about 5 days ago, but my ollies keep on being rocket ollies. Basically, my ollies are: tail about 5 cm off the ground and the nose is about 50 cm off the ground.
    Can you guys tell me what I could do to get my ollies levelled out? Thx in advance.

    Hey guys, I am trying to learn how to do an ollie while moving and I have a problem. When I try to pop the board when I am moving I feel like the board is going to like "leave my feet" if you will, I dont know if its the grip tape, it probably is because i got the board from dunhams sports. Please help me out! Thanks!

    ^ sounds like you're not dragging your front foot along the grip enough or moving the back leg out of the way after you pop. A video would help to better assess your ollies.

    If the board doesn't seem to keep to your feet then it's more likely your pop isn't super strong yet. The better the pop the better your control generally.

    Yo.
    The little problem is, I'm totally left legged. I keep my left foot on the skateboard while ridin, so it's a lot easier to do front ollie (and the board is just flippin behind me unless I stop) cause I can't even keep the balance on the right foot doing ollie.
    Any suggestions?
