Skateboard Video Vault: Ollie North

The Ollie North

An Ollie North is a regular ollie with a front foot kick.  First the skater pops into the air.  When they reach their peak, they take their front foot and kick it straight off the nose of their board.  This trick is called an Ollie North because they kick to the north rather than any other direction.  The opposite of this trick is an Ollie South. An Ollie North is the more common of the two and is a bit easier to manage.  Doing this trick well just means going higher and kicking farther.
