There are many tricks in snowboarding but I choose an Ollie to start of.
An Ollie is one of the most regular jumps using the tail of your Snowboard as a spring. This trick is the basic move for a lot of aerial tricks and it is also useful when jumping over small obstacles. In this section, learn how to perform an Ollie. Let our animation be your guide when doing this trick.
First, find a gentle slope with as little traffic as possible. Why is that so? Because you will need a relatively wide space for this snowboarding trick. Second, crouch slightly on your board, shifting your weight to your back foot. Third, start shifting your weight on your back foot to remove the pressure from your front foot. Then, level your board in midair and raise your knees to your chest once your front foot gets airborne. Afterwards, bend your knees to absorb the impact of the landing. Finally, ride away once your entire snowboard touches the ground. Keep repeating the steps above until you become comfortable doing it.
