This is Kyle Hovercamp from Skatechurch in
Portland, Oregon. On behalf of Expert Village, this is the tutorial of how to learn how to
ollie on your skateboard. In this clip, I’m going to teach you how to know where to put
your feet when you’re going to do an ollie. Before I showed you where to put your feet
when you’re just rolling, which was on the bolts. Now, when you’re ready to ollie, bring
both of your feet back a little bit. Your back foot has to be on the tail of the deck
and your front foot should below the bolts. When you pop your trick, your foot has enough
room to slide up to level your board out. Don’t have your feet too close to each other
on the tail because the board will start lifting up when you bend down to pop your trick. You
also can’t have your feet too far apart or you won’t be able to pop your trick at all.
You have to remember to keep your balance, so when you have your feet in the right place,
just keep your center of gravity of roll and just be balanced and comfortable.

    you can do it right before the bolts, as I do too. But with your foot in the middle you can easily get a higher ollie

    @bizzaro42 your are probably bending to far forward and sliding your foot a bit to far of the side of the board

    When you pop, you have to ump. This allows you to slide that foot up. I know it seems impossible, but you'll get it eventually. Just practice.

    Try this: just pop with your back foot and then jump real quick (just like you would put your hand on top of a fire and then have the reflex to take it off), don't mind the slide of your foot. I did this and the slide came naturally 🙂 hope it works for you

    what you need to do is jump while you slide your foot up. This will put less friction on your shoes and allow you to slide your food up smoothly.
