Introduction: How to Ollie on a Skateboard

If you don't know how to ollie on a skateboard then read this!


Step 1: Materials

All you need is a skateboard and a helmet (optional)

Step 2: The Stance

Place your front foot in between the middle of your skateboard and the front trucks. Place your rear foot on the tail (back) of your board putting most of your weight on the ball of your foot.

Step 3: Jumping

Crouch down on your board the more you crouch the higher you will go. Push off of your back foot to jump. Wait until the tail of your board hits the ground.

Step 4: The Front Foot

After you've jumped slide your front foot up to the nose (front) of your board. This will make your board come up with you.

Step 5: The Back Foot & Getting Higher

Lift up your back foot so the back of the board goes higher. Also tuck your legs up when you are in the air. (it will make you go higher)

Step 6: Level It Out

Level out the board buy pushing down on the board slightly.

Step 7: Landing

Put both of your feet over the bolts so your board doesn't break if you ollie really high. Extend your legs so they are slightly bent and land.

Step 8: Troubleshooting

These are some things that might happen to you when you ollie.

Credit card
This is where your board comes up and hits you in the groin. This hurts really bad.

Chickenfoot
This is when one of your feet keeps on landing on the ground instead of on the board. Just pretend your feet are attached to the board and this will go away.

    Just relax, be patient and practice! don't quit!

    If you want to Ollie with no nose on the board, do the exact same thing. If your front foot slips off the front simply don't slide as far

    can i do ollie without a nose on skateboard

    Great instructable. The only thing I need is a way to get myself to jump higher. Do you know any ways to do that?

    This is a great instructable. I can ollie now :D

    I'm very impressed with your ollie, I kind of expected a little pop considering how young you are, but I'm extremely impressed. I've been skating for years and years myself. I would recommend kicking your front foot out a little farther and kind of pulling the board so it bones out and gets those back wheels up another 6 inches or so. As is your ollie is extremely good for your age, but if you could get those back wheels up a little bit you're gonna be ollie-ing way higher than most skaters twice your age.
