These days, it seems everyone is getting longboards. This is not for you though. The real fun comes when you get a standard street skateboard. Who want’s to stop when they approach a curb? Not me; And certainly not you!
The first trick you should learn when skateboarding is how to ollie. With the ollie under your belt, you can begin learning a whole new range of other tricks including kick flips, 360 flips, pressure slips, nollies, and more. The sky is the limit.
In this video, the legend himself Tony Hawk will give you a brief tutorial on the fundamentals of performing an ollie. Keep in mind he is a pro skater and makes this look very easy. It will take some practice getting used to it, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes like second nature.
