How to Ollie on a Snowboard

The Ollie:

The most versatile and important skill a rider can learn. This trick will help riders access more terrain features and is the basic building block for pretty much everything in freestyle riding. This Ollie teaches a rider how to load energy into the tail of the snowboard and release it to create pop.

The simple breakdown: Get low; rock slightly forward over the front foot; slide the board under the body, bringing the tail in under the core; extend the back leg to load and leverage the tail; pull the back foot and tail off the ground; pull the knees up; and stomp the board down, centered under the body and bend the legs to absorb the landing.

Practice the Ollie every single day, and develop the ability to Ollie off-of and over all sorts of terrain and obstacles around the mountain. Have fun be safe, and Enjoy the Ride!
