How To Jump Higher With A Skateboard

By | December 12, 2016


My name is Aaron Kyro. I'm a sponsored skateboarder from the SanFrancisco Bay area. And today I'm going to teach you guys howto ollie higher The first thing I'm going to go over is the stepsof the regular ollie So you guys can see the difference Notice my front foot just down from the frontbolts And my back foot with the ball of my toe juston the edge of the tail So that's the foot position just for a regular ollie

And the first step you're going to do to practicea regular ollie Is just clacking your tail on the ground justlike that So just stand still and just lift up yourfront leg And slap your tail on the ground for a littlebit That's the first step of learning how to ollie The second step is actually this motion ofyour foot right here So notice how my sole of my shoe goes intoa 90 degree angle And then I slide my foot up

It's actually that slide that gives your boardthe lift. Nothing else. It is that slide that brings your tail upoff the ground Because the front of your board is alreadyoff the ground So you just have to level your board out inthe air bringing the tail up And it's that slide of the front foot whichdoes that So that's the basic ollie I'm sure many of you guys have already gottenthe ollie down But if you haven't, you can just practicethose steps

And you'll get it down So the difference between a regular ollie And when I'm trying to ollie higher or ollieover something Is that I put my front foot further back Notice how much further back my front footwas on that oneé Instead of being up near the truck, it wasdown towards the middle of the board And what that does, is it gives me more roomon the board to slide my foot up So instead of having it right there up nearthe front truck

I'm going to slide that front foot back abouthalfway Right in the middle as you can see there And then I can have a little more room to slide And power the ollie a little bit higher intothe air So yeah it's just that motion right there You can even hear my shoes sliding on thegrip tape You also need to be able to jump high And you actually have to be able to jump

And bend your knees up into the air when youdo the ollie Because obviously when your board goes upinto the air Your legs are going to crouch up So the higher you can get your board While crouching your legs up into the air Is going to be how high you can get your ollie Now it definitely helps to have a nice freshboard Like not an old soggy board where the woodis like all damp

How to do a Hardflip on a Skateboard How to Jump into a Hardflip When Skateboarding

What's up y'allé My name is Darin Carter onbehalf of Expert Village. I'm going to show you today how to do a Hardflip on a skateboard.Alright, in this clip right here I'm going to show you how to jump on the board and makesure you don't hit anything valuable. So, right here, we're doing the jump, we're doingthe ollie. We've got our placements down for the Hardflip. Once we kick up and kick out,the board is flipping in between our legs. You see how this motion is, right here. Itflips vertically in between your legs. And it rotates into a kick flip motion. This allowsyou to get hit somewhere or you can jump high enough and you can avoid that contact. So,what you need to do here is, once you do the

flip and you jump. Make sure you jump highand spread your legs. Like this. This allows the board to flip in between your legs andland right underneath you, and you should be able to land it.
