Where to Start
Before we discuss, what is Ollie as it may be new to the people who have never heard of the term before.

One thing that is important to note and take care of is that your longboard should have a considerably sized tail to Ollie.
Here are seven easy steps in detail to assist you to learn this exciting stunt and enjoy longboarding to the max.

Landing back on the ground is as technical as taking off because if you land an Ollie with both feet in the middle of your deck, it is going to snap. Also, if you land on the nose and tail, it can damage both of them. So for this, keep your knees bend while landing to absorb the shock.
