Two traffic cones stacked on top of eachother consistently. 3 (about knee-height iirc) after a dozen or so tries

I was doing this last week and surprised myself with getting over three (over the the shorter side, with three they don't stack so level). I like using them as "training" obstacles because the stack simply falls if you clip and you don't get tossed.
We got uh, Johnny Layton out there in the blue shorts, just cruisin' around.

Not sure how high. High enough I guess. I can half cab higher then I can Ollie for some reason.

I watched this Jake Hayes vid without expecting to learn anything from it, but he mentions "curling" your back ankle at the peak to get a little more height, and I do believe keepign that in mind that has legitimately helped me. At least it's improved getting my back foot the fuck out off the way so that the board can come up further
Never seen this video before. He's certainly got good height and form. I've never been able to bend my back foot that way but I'm down to practice if it will add some height to my ollies.

Ollied this lil wall today and as I watched the clip, I noticed my back foot is not staying in contact with the tail on the way up. Slowed it down with this gif to take a closer look, and yeah that thing is nowhere near the tail till it levels. I feel like when I watch good ollies, the back foot stays in touch with the tail.

Any tips on tweaks I can make? I'm getting comfy with adding height to my ollies but my form seems to be lacking. Gif below for reference.
