I was always god awful at just normal ollies until I realized you can help "pull" the board up with your back foot too -_-
explain

pop, slide front foot like normal, but also imagine your back foot constantly in contact with the board, using the contact to pull it up and slightly forward

ollieing into nose manuals on low things like up a sidewalk. how do you do that? I do better trying them on something higher. manuals in general are tough for me but Iíve always wanted to do nose manuals on low manual pads.

I held off for years on learning nose manuals so 2 years ago i started learning them on small pads because i was scared to go any higher. i've gotten them finally but after eating a lot of shit. they are for sure easier on high stuff. just go light at first like don't totally nosedive into the curb

avoid stomping on your nose, being light footed and perfectly perpendicular to the board is the key

Also, besides this, put your front put a lot higher so you barely have to drag into it. Experiment with possibly keeping your front foot even more over the trucks in the curve of the nose when you land in the manny. Keeping your arms parallel to the board is huge. I had the same problem until I started practicing this more.

tips on frontide flips? the ones where you spin it out
and do not revert/pivot it on flat after > 90 degrees?

practice hardflips a lot and then think of it like a hardflip 180

I haven't done a fs flip since before I broke my ankle but when I did do them they were Muska flips. Not sure what I can say other than literally think about it as a front 180 and a kickflip (disclaimer: front 180s are the one trick I'm REALLY good at). That's how I learned them.

Switch flips are harder for me than switch 360 flips. I canít get switch varial kickflips when I try, but get them when I fuck up switch 360 flips.

this is going to sound weird but I started getting those a lot more after I started setting up for them the way I normally set up for 360 flips, big toe on the pocket, face where you're going then open your shoulders as you pop.

Switch flips and ollie north. Haven't been able to do them in years. Rolled my ankle pretty bad some years back and haven't been able to get them back.

Smacking your tail down after an ollie. Primarily over a bump to bump or a hip. Seems like it should be pretty straight forward but every time I've tried it I feel like I'm going to break my board or I just do a really lame ollie.

Fucking regular pop shuv its!! I can pop switch ones easily and pretty high.  The second I try regular ones it spins like a varial. Is hard for me to level it. And if I do it itís like 50/50 chance Iím going to land it. Primos are very common for me if I over think it. I always admired garret hills pop shuv.

nose manny. Can't do them at all.

Lost pop shuv's too...they do the same as mentioned above. Switch is fine, fs fine as well, but reg shuv's are asking for primo landings.

If it works for you great, but that is definitely a weird FS flip setup

Seconded for front 3s, really wanna learn them

Uhh how the fuck are you supposed to back 50-50?

FrenchFriedClownFingers for backside 360 ollies just have your big toe hang off the tail before you pop (as much as, maybe more than you would for a 360 flip). then you throw your shoulders into the spin, pop with the right timing and your back foot should do all the work, guiding the board around with you not too unlike it would control an impossible. the technique has nothing to do with normal backside 180's where you actually ollie then turn, here you just spin and scoop. the shoulder part is a bitch to learn and you may end up landing short of 90 degrees, slipping out and eating shit before you figure it out. maybe if you do enough backside 360 no-complies that will help.

I suck at frontside ones (except switch - classic) but the few satisfying ones I've done, I remember I was mentally breaking it down into two parts, like scooped frontside 180 late frontside 180 (if that makes sense), in order to force myself to get the shoulders part right. it's a beautiful trick, I should put some time into really trying to learn it properly. watch Donny Barley, Donger, Sheffey, Wray.

there's no denying that. my whole life is set up weird. every frontside flip I pop I try really hard to pretend I'm PJ Ladd in WHL mid-line on the road amid the traffic, but of course that never works and eventually I just witness myself flop around and occasionally pivot on the nose.

^This please. Any time I try ollie anything on bumps, hips, skateparks, etc., I'm looking more limp and flaccid than what Stormy Daniels witnesses every time she visits a Trump Tower exec suite.

Are you supposed to pump up the start of the incline like you would on a quarter/park transition? Should you be crouching at the beginning of the incline and quickly popping up at the top? Or "scooping" the tail out? Or should you be completely straight-legged while riding up the incline then popping up and sucking up your knees?

This shit torments me to no end.

practice one footers where you dont just ollie and then lift, but really kick them out from the start (like a kickflip/heelflip without a flip) and then when you fuck up and dont 'one foot' but just kinda bone it by accident the smacking almost always happens, then just refine that motion.

oh and dont stomp, but i think the one footer tactic kind of requires finesse or lightfootedness so that might be why it worked for me

Nosebluntslides from the side of the ledge, can do em rollin straight at it but whenever I try em from the side I either miss it completely or if I actually get into it I'm leaning too far forward and jump off...

Weirdly enough I'm really good at FS nosegrinds but it pisses me off that I can't tweak it just that little bit more to get it on a noseblunt.

Can't even comprehend how to pop outta that shit in the middle of the ledge too. Templeton makes it look so easy.

popping out of boardslides in the middle of a double sided-ledge. (think tall curb)

I've tried to slam the tail and throw my shoulders but I hang up every time or the tail hits the ground and stops immediately...

pop off and come back to the side you came from to land, or transfer over ? I find that those motions are more in the hips than they are in the shoulders (although your line of thinking isn't wrong seeing as a lot of skateboarding actually has to do with the shoulders)

Same Side, and are you saying like thrust your hips (lol) to the side you wanna come out of?
