Trick Tip
FS Ollie

While Frontside Ollies are one of the easier flat ground tricks, they are a bit harder in transitions. It might feel strange in the beginning because you have to jump with your back towards the transition.

But after some tries you should manage the movement and it will feel all natural. This basic trick is absolutely necessary if you want to go big on transitions, mini ramps or pools.

2. Just before your front truck reaches the coping, pop your tail.

Similar to the Frontside 180 on flat, you also should use your shoulders to help with the 180 degree turn.

3. At 90 degrees in the air, you should have reached the highest point.

4. Now finish the 180 with the help of your front foot, which should be the guide, and press down the nose.

5. Let both of your trucks land in the quarter pipe and roll away.

Be careful that you and your board are not to close to the coping when going back into the quarter pipe so you don’t hang up.

Also make sure to not bent too much forward or backward when going back into the quarter pipe.
