As with skateboarding, the ollie's the trick that opens up a whole new world of boarding wizardry.
It helps you get airborne on jumps and gets you up on to obstacles for sliding.
Start by mastering the ollie on the flat.
Then you can go onto the big kickers and really catch some air!
Ride towards your take off point with medium pace.
Keep your legs bent in readiness for the ollie.
As you approach take off, shift your weight on to your back foot.
Lift your front foot, raising the tip of the board.
Now using the flex of the board jump off your back foot.
As you get airborne, bring your knees towards your chest.
Prepare to land by bending your legs to absorb the impact.
Land with your board flat and your body centred.
Now ride away and find the next kicker to catch air from!
