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.

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.

i love a good tail-slap

lean back, put your front foot lower and pop a bit more

I wish I'd known that at best we only have 20 summers at a decent skate level.
From then on it's low impact skating and trying not to forget tricks. 20 summers. And then it's over.

When I was a kid I used to skate a ditch with marks in feet to gauge the water level. I would ollie next to it and try to measure it at the same time. By this measure I could ollie somewhere between 18" and 36" in 1988.

Nowadays I can ollie six manholes stacked on top of each other.

I ollied a fold-up table that was tipped on its side after like 50 tries, looked like 5-6 boards.

also, I think being tall gives an advantage as you can tuck without having to jump as high

I actually havenít pushed myself to my limit yet, I can probably get over a tennis net with practice but so far I can easily clear 7 boards. I wanted to try 8 but no one was willing to give a board to stack, so that sucks. I donít really think that height is that important, to me the length and arc matters more, thatís what matters in terms of clearing big obstacles and gaps, you need a ollie thatís high and long. A large trash can is a good start I feel.

so apparently one of those parking barriers is just 32" tall! crazy! but now that i think about it, i think that is actually where they STARTED the contest from in the reese forbes ollie challenge.

I would have thought they are taller than that. I am pretty sure I ollied up a 6 stair that was higher than that but i dont have it on film. that jersey barrier probably highest thing i have documented. crazy to think the world rec 45" !! i honestly doubt i could even jump that high on foot lmao. i feel like even 40" is probably the highest i would ever reach with training.
