Ollies are going to be the foundation of a lot of aerial tricks. For now you are going to be performing ollies off the ground but later you will use the same techniques to get extra air off jumps, jumping small obstacles and the likes. Ollies will also help you get used to being airborne but in a way that’s not too high so you can build your confidence slowly. It will also help you to practice landing. Try to get the landing technique right from the outset. You may get away with poor landing technique on ollies but if you learn bad habits, it will make it much more difficult and much less successful when you are trying to land bigger jumps and tricks down the line. Be sure to start out on a gentle slope when first learning ollies and try to make sure there isn’t too much traffic around – traffic will make it harder for you and more likely that you’ll take others out when you wipe out!
