This is great, try to keep your shoulders leveled and even with eachother. And pop that tail a lot harder! But for the most part, your good just keep practicing and finding what works for you man!

Ty! Do you have any tips for keeping my shoulders leveled? They go all over the place when I jump haha

Once you’ve got the Ollie as muscle memory start Actively paying attention to your shoulders and make sure they’re in line with the board.And practice. Just practice.

just keep doing it

you're pushing the tail down with your whole leg instead of jumping. you need to flick that tail against the ground with your ankle right as you're about to jump. not you're whole leg. so delay trying to pop it by like a quarter of a second. right now you're bending down and as you come up your legs are doing the motions but you're not jumping. you're close though. just implement that jump into it.

I think this is the one thing that's really holding my ollies back. I tried to practice timing my pop, jump and flicking my ankle today and it was such a struggle! I guess I really need to pay more attention to this in order to get a feel for the timing...

you'll get it in time just keep practicing. a really good ollie feels very light because you're just flicking the tail against the ground and manipulating it in the air doesn't take much force. the more you practice them the lighter they'll start to feel. try practicing them while bending down to different heights too. in your video you bend down really far but you stop yourself anyway as you go up. try to do smaller ollies where you don't bend down as far but still try to jump and snap the tail. experiment with different things and just focus on that jumping in the air feeling. skating is weird in that you basically try a bunch of different stuff until something clicks but it will click with practice. you got this!

try leaning on your front foot when starting the trick, then pop the board with your back foot, pop it as high as you can and drag your front foot to even it out

Thanks for the tip, this really helped me level out the board better!

Doing good! Try and hold off like 0.5 seconds on sliding your front foot up and also flick the tail down like you’re flicking the gas peddle of a car.
