Tips

  • Start by doing 180s. You will only have to spin half the distance, and you will also land facing forward making rolling away easier
  • You will have to time it differently than an ollie, but you should know this.
  • You can practice the spinning on the grass or someplace where the board won't roll out from under you if you don't land quite right. If you go too fast, the board will lose control and you will not be able to successfully land the trick.

Warnings

  • You have to jump high or you won't make it all the way around.
  • Wear a helmet and pads to prevent serious injury.
