How To Super Ollie On A Fingerboard
Landing ollies in a nose manual is one of the most stylish things, on both a fingerboard and on a regular skateboard.
A super ollie is the same as popping an ollie, but you land on the two front wheels and ride out in a nose manual. Achieve this by sliding both fingers forward, rather than just your front finger.
Read the step by step guide below to learn how to add extra style to your ollies.
Step 1: Finger Positioning
Finger positioning is going to be the same as an ollie. Index finger somewhere in the middle of the deck, and middle finger over the tail.
Step 2: Popping The Trick
Pop an ollie as you would normally, using your middle finger to snap the tail down.
Step 3: Catching The Board And Landing
This is where the trick differs from a regular ollie. Instead of just sliding your index finger up and leveling your hand out, slide both fingers forward so that you will land with your index finger on the nose and your middle finger somewhere between the middle of the deck and the rear bolts.
Continue the arc of the ollie with your hand, don’t stop it once the board is level. Keep following the arc so that your index finger comes down first. Put pressure on the nose so that the rear wheels don’t touch the ground, and ride out in a nose manual.
Practice just doing nose manuals. A challenge with this trick is that you may not land it with your middle finger in the same position every time. Sometimes it may be in the middle of the deck, other times it might be right on the rear bolts. Practice riding nose manuals with your middle finger in different positions. Practice adjusting your middle finger positioning mid-manual as well. This will help you ride away more often.
