Learn how to do an ollie in a few easy steps.
STEP 1 – DETERMINE YOUR STANCE
We’re assuming if you’re trying to learn how to do an ollie, you’re probably pretty new to skateboarding. You may already know whether you’re goofy or regular footed, but if not, try taking a quick hop onto your board with the intention of rolling forward (you might want to try on carpet first so you don’t slip backwards). If you’re left foot naturally ends up towards the front of your board, you’re regular-footed. If you ended up putting your right foot first, you’re goofy-footed.
You may want to follow the rest of the steps on carpet as well. If you’re comfortable with your riding and balance, your driveway or sidewalk will be the best place to continue.
