After you’ve learned right move to do an Ollie, try it while sliding on the slope.
Choose a gentle slopes so that you can try doing an Ollie just as on the flat ground.
To focus more on the right movement, try to start it small and with a slow speed so you can get used to it gradually while sliding.
Check if all your toe to heel, nose to tail, and rotational balance are in right position.
If your balance is good while doing it small and with slow speed, now try to jump higher by pushing your board further forward.
Key point is keeping your back elbow and shoulder up high and sucking up your back leg after pop.
Don’t worry if you can’t jump such high.
What you should focus for now is keeping good balance while doing an ollie.
When you getting used to it, find a snowball or line on the snow, and try to jump over it.
Jumping over some obstacles is good practice to lift the nose of your board up naturally.
So it sometimes improve your Ollie faster.
While jumping over an obstacles or lines, try to focus on timing to do an Ollie as well.
So you can time it with natural hit which is your next step.
Once you have gotten used to it, you can try some challenges.
While turning, try to add an Ollie to change edges.
So at the end of a turn, you can do an ollie and land on the other side of the edge or on the flat base.
Start turning as soon as possible after landing and do an Ollie again to change edges.
Just repeat it for a while.
Once again, this is just a balance training so you don’t have to worry if you can’t do it properly.
Next time, we will learn to do an Ollie with natural hits.
All natural hits have unique shapes, angle and so on.
So balance, timing while hitting them will be challenging.
