DO we need to have an ollie class?   :o

Seriously...I used to have mad pop (I could clear like 4 boards) but now I can only get about a foot.  I'd be happy to work on it ya if you want to meet me at the park.  You know the drill...it's just a quick weight shift from the front to the back then again to the front all while giving a little jump.

This may sound stupid but... When I was younger and still skated to increase the height of my ollie
I took a bike inner tube and put it around my board held on to it with my hand and it kept the board
going up with my feet.  It added at least 2ft to my ollies.  Hope I explained that good enough to get
the picture..
