i heard getting higher ollies has alot to do with how high you jump when you ollie? true?


Pretty much. How how you jump, how comfortable you are, confidence, and technique/skill.

anyone wanna help out? whenever i do kickflips, my foot is pointed on a 45 degree angle just right under the bottom left screw. when i pop and flick, board seems to allude me and i can never get my back foot on the board. anyone have any advice?


there can be a few reason u arent keeping the board under u and it gets away.. First make sure u kick your front foot up to then nose then flick it off, also make sure u are jumping straight up, just like an ollie... U see people when learning flip tricks they tend to lean forward and it throws u off... Also make sure u kick your foot out far enough! And some people are afraid to land it because the board might shoot out under em, which then will automatically make u not keep under u!

Just try to keep your shoulders over the bolts at all times and the board should land straight under you.

if you watched his game of skate against chris cole youd know he has lost touch on skating, thats why he wanted to play with his tricks because he would have most likley gotten blacked out playing with actual tricks, and all the tricks in his battle comander are basically all the tricks he can do. and just because skatings fun and he loves it doesnt make him good i know plenty of people like that but they still suck and have no sponsors and are going nowhere in skating


Way to totally miss the point of skateboarding. Just because he doesn't do all the normal ollie based tricks doesn't mean he's not a good skater; he, and many others, don't not do typical flip tricks because they can't, but cause they don't want to. Anybody can do whatever they want with skating buddy, and not everyone is as narrow minded as you.

anybody got any tips on no complys? i fuck up and do a shove it no comply everytime


After you pop the board up, do you jump up with it and let the nose hit your upper leg? I found that helped me a lot, cause it meant I didn't have to worry about it popping up too high, and it makes the board come back down nicely.

you might be flicking down, tell your friend to take a pic of you doing it to see if both your feet are in the air and over the board when you flick. on a kickflip, you flick out and not down
