1. decent flatland ollies - mine are still pathetically low.
I've been through all of Twellsy's excellent I need to ollie thread. In particular Justin's suggestion to use the back of a chair to remain in the air longer has helped.
I've also read a number of the many online how to ollie articles.
a good one is here:
however by far the best one in terms of getting results is by our resident SOS owner Unusual on the UKSA forum http://www.ukskate.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=549 . His method teaches how to learn the ollie in stages. In the photos here I'm not trying to get the board completely airborne just practising his method of learning to tap the tail and control the board. Still frames from some vid I took with my cam on a stand.
