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..


BUHAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH A

Do you tie leashes to you dock and paddle in the canal too? Bahahahahahahahahahahahahahah aha

Ollies are probably the toughest move to learn and do well.  And yes, they look way easier than they are for sure!

On a good day, I can clear a peanut.
But usually getting over a dime is the best I can do.

Here's me with the originator of said move....



...and my version in the Cherry Hill Egg Bowl, circa 1979.



Yes, I'm 80 lbs heavier and suck now, so I like to live in the past. :soapbox:
