360 Ollie Setup

The 360 Ollie is a sweet looking skateboarding intermediate trick. There are few street skateboarding tricks that look smoother. The 360 Ollie is one of those tricks that you can bust out when you really want to show off, or just remind yourself that you are alive.

The 360 Ollie (or just "360", as most people call it) is where you are skateboarding along, and then you pop the board up into an ollie super high, while spinning all the way around in the air, and land rolling the same way you started. Most 360 ollies are done off of high curbs or ramps, because you need an awful lot of hang time in the air to spin all the way around.

360 ollies can be performed frontside or backside. I think backside 360 ollies are easier to learn, but these step-by-step 360 ollie instructions will cover both backside and frontside 360 ollies.

Here's what you'll need to already know, before learning to 360 ollie:

  • Know how to skateboard. Of course. But you need to be pretty intermediate, at least, before tackling the 360 ollie. You want to be confident on a skateboard, have good balance, and know how to take a fall without getting too hurt.
  • Know how to ollie. Again, of course. But you want your ollies to be high. You need to be able to stay in the air long enough to spin all the way around!
  • Know how to 180 ollie. Make sure you feel very comfortable and confident with your 180s, before you move on to 360s.
Once you are good with these skateboarding skills, you can attack the 360 ollie! Read the rest of these directions, all the way through, and make sure they make sense to you before you head out and try to 360 ollie. Print them out if you want, but have them handy, and when you are ready then get out there and learn to 360 ollie!

Skateboarding Tricks and Tips

Skateboarding is a fascinating and fun sport that is growing rapidly. To help you get the most from skateboarding, below are a few tricks and tips that can be very useful.

Here are a few skateboarding tips to get you started.

• Overcome the fear of having your back face the transition
• Learn how to stall properly
• Learn how to gain momentum
• Never let your edge wheels hang up

Here is a list of some of the most popular tricks.

• Stall
• Backside 50-50 on transition
• Frontside 50-50 on transition
• Frontside 5-0 on transition
• Ollie
• Kickflip
• Kickflip nose manual

One of the first things that a skateboarder needs to learn is how to stall. This needs to be done before you attempt to move on to other tricks. Stalling helps you to get familiar with your weight placement which aids in other tricks. Once you have accomplished this move you are ready to move on.

To perform a stall start off with a good amount of speed and as soon as the trucks on the back of the skateboard reaches the coping turn and make your heel edge wheel roll onto the top of the coping. Put your weight over the heel edge to help you get up on top of the coping. Once you have accomplished this, continue by setting your front truck down and finish off the stall by dropping back in, lift up your front truck then kickturn into a tranny. Avoid hang ups by putting weight on the toe edge.

The Backside 50-50 on transition is one of the first tricks that most skaters learn. Begin with more speed than you need to simply perform a stall. When you approach the coping turn slightly so you will be at an angle, this will allow you to ride the coping. The more momentum you have the further you will be able to go before dropping back in with the kickturn.

The Frontside 50-50 can be very intimidating for many skaters because your back is facing down the transition. However, once you get over this fear you will be amazed at all the tricks you will be able to accomplish. Gain momentum and go straight up the transition. When you near the coping turn because, instead of your heel edge wheel you want the toe edge wheel of the back truck to hook as far as possible over the coping. Begin with the back truck first and then set down on your front truck. You need to keep your weight mainly on the toe side of your skateboard.

To do a Frontside 5-0 transition you must get on top of the coping and scrape some metal. Get up as much speed as possible, turn putting your body weight to the front then lock your back truck onto the coping. After some practice and learning how to keep your balance you got it made.

The Ollie will be the next trick that you need to learn followed by the kickflip and the kickflip nose manual. As you may have noticed learning one trick will help you accomplish the next one. For instance, knowing how to do the Ollie will help you accomplish the kickflip, which in turn helps you learn the kickflip nose manual. Take your time and learn one trick at a time. Before you know it, you will be a skating pro that knows all the tricks and tips to success.
