    Important side-note here: When grabbing the board, be sure to keep your thumb parallel to the board, i.e. don't try to grab it between your thumb and fingers, but rather, your fingers and palm. The first time I tried a boneless, I accidentally popped the board right into my thumb and sprained the hell out of it. Not fun.

    well the boneless was created before the ollie, so before the ollie was invented, people used the boneless to get air. so yea, it is an old school ollie.

    old school ollie is different than a boneless, and ya boneless was around before the ollie but even back then people were doing old school ollies.
