January 5, 2007, Newsletter Issue #47: Higher Ollies

Tip of the Week

When I was a kid this is the way I looked at things; I figured if I can jump 5ft in the air then I can ollie 5ft. And, do you know what? It started working for me. But, it was after years of skating, being in shape, and mastering the ollie. So, first what you have to do is start setting up obstacles to ollie over. You mentioned that you can ollie as high as 8 inches right? Thats about as wide as a board set sideways. Anyway, during your next skate session you and your budies should take turns setting up each others boards sideways. Practice olling over a single board until you feel real comfortable clearing it. Next, stack another board up so you have 2 boards stacked up. The hieght of two boards stacked up sidewyas is about 1 foot or more. Practice clearing 2 boards until you get really comfortable with that height. Once you master that stack a 3rd board. Setting goals will help you to progress fast. The key to progression in to have an obstale to clear and to set goals. The next time you contact us here at activemailorder you should be at almost 3 boards. Take care and remember practice makes big ollies.
