Learn how to ollie over small objects and how to attempt various skateboard tricks in this free video series on skateboarding techniques.
This is Kyle Hovercamp from Skatechurch in Portland, Oregon. On behalf of Expert Village, this is the tutorial of how to learn how to ollie on your skateboard. In this clip, I'm going to show you how to ollie over small objects. You can practice ollieing up curves. If you have friend that has a skateboard, you can practice ollieing over the board. One thing that I suggest is you have to be going fast enough to get over the board so you don't clip it or hit it on the way there. It depends how fast you're going when you have to pop your board. If you're going fast enough, you can pop back here, but if you're going too slow then pop like right here. Keep your eyes in front of the object. If you're looking at the object, you might hit something on the way to it. If you're just looking at the ground, you might not realize when the object is coming. Just keep your eyes where you're going to pop and remember how high it is and ollie as high as you can to get over the object.
