Today’s reader question:
“How do I ollie on a snowboard?”
Straight to the point, I like that 🙂 Here’s a rough rundown of how to ollie on a snowboard and I also included a video I found which helps show the steps in motion.
How to Ollie On A Snowboard
1) Lift your front foot and shift your weight – you want to be throwing your weight into your tail, almost like you’re doing a wheelie on your tail.
2) Push down with your body weight over your tail and extend your back leg – you want to use your tail as if it was a spring and you want to spring off your tail as you continue to raise your front foot.
3) Suck up your knees and bring them closer to your chest to maximise the height of your ollie. Your front foot should go up first followed by your back foot and they should equalize and be balanced at the top of your jump.
4) Land on both feet at the same time and stomp that landing.
