I agree, you need to learn to ollie first, as well as manualing. You can base most other tricks off of those two things. :)

You should probably lay off it for a while, then. Rest up and try again. You won't be able to do much of anything when you're sore, and you might just hurt yourself worse! :(

It's a good idea. You're too young to be putting that much strain or your body. :D

They might get up, but it's just because they're in shock, most likely. Or the adrenaline is so high that they aren't quite feeling it yet! I had a friend that was ollieing over a chain connected two posts once - on his last try, his board got snagged on the chain and he fell really hard. He broke his collarbone, but he got up and walked home and then went to the doctor. :P

Here's my tip for the ollie. If you're having trouble getting enough pop, move your back foot further back on the board until it's mostly off. That's what I did when I was learning.
