ollie higher?

Home  \  Forums  \  Skateboarding  \  ollie higher?
hey yall. there's a 7 stair set in front of my church and everytime i try it i always land on the last step cuz there isn't really a big place to get up speed. like u get 2 good pushes and that's all. so i wuz thinking if i could ollie higher that i could prolly make it. what do yall think? oh and if yall could give me sum tips on ollieing higher i'd appreciate it.

p.s. are dc alias' good shoes?

Well I would probably try to first increase the power of those two opushes and try too lift ur feet up more like pull them up. and all dc's r good so buy em!

Hey man where are you from?Theres this church behind my house (7 Stair) and you get about 2 pushes if your lucky.Sounds like the same stair...prob not but I've done it.The way I always ollie gaps and satir is I go slower cuz I like to extend my legs (you gotta be there to know what I talking about) kinda like pushing my board out with my feet and I always clear the last few steps.Hard to explain and anyways I gotta go....good luck

The most I've ever ollied was a 10 set. That was almost too close to call though. The first time I did it, I almost broke my ankle. So I would suggest trying 1) put more power into your pushes 2) Lift your legs up higher and 3) DONT fall! Have fun.

Ok dont listen to them,you need to snap your tell back harder and faster.
If that doesnt work it must be your jumping or foot work.
