Step 1: Ollie

Have ur ollies dialed in, shuvits dialed in, and ur ready to learn to kickflip

Step 2: Foot Placement

You put ur front foot JUST below the front bolts, and back foot in ollie position

Step 3: Flick

when you ollie, try to flick your front foot out of the pocket of the board, the board will start to flip. Don't be scared, just JUMP UP!!!! and when the board flips all the way, stomp down

Step 4: PRACTICE!!!!

PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!!! you will land it eventually, try to land upsidedown first.

    I can't flip the board


    9 years ago on Introduction

    I am a beginner of skating and i'd been trying to pop an ollie for about a year. But the prob is my skatboard doesn't have a nose at all. Is it really possible by my board? Need help, please, from anyone

    actually, you CAN ollie a board with barely any nose. It's just a different technique. When ollieing a board with very little nose(such as a jet doppler, loaded tan tien, bc moray, etc) you must put one foot on what tail you have and the other in standard ollie position, take your back foot, push back and down on the tail and rool your front foot forwards. It's expodentially harder than a normal ollie, but it is doable( I learned to do this before I could regular ollie)

     What do you mean your board doesn't have a nose! It's not impossible to ollie on a board without a nose (dudes were doing it for years on those old fishtail boards) but why would you want to make things more difficult for yourself? Go out to your local skateshop and and pick up a shop deck. It's always the best bang for your buck and having a nose on your board helps.
