Alright I"m starting to be irritated here...How long, in average, should it take to learn to consistently land simple freaking ollies?I"ve been training it 30 minutes to an hour everyday for 2 weeks... I just can"t freaking do it... The board always turn, flips, fly forward, or whatever. The only ones that I land are the ones where the board doesn"t even really jump...I get so irritated sometimes I just want to snap that fucking board in half...Is it just me who royally suck or its normal? I mean I"m not trying to tre flip here... just a simple freaking ollie...

Commitment, time and effort is they key of learning basically any trick faster.If you skate 30-60 mins per day, it could take you from 1-3 months. In most cases that is.Also, how much of that time you actually spend skating, and how much of time you spend on doing other stuff like resting, smoking ect. If you do like 10 tries and you have to sit down, then don"t expect to be G at doing ollies so fast.
I figured that for basic ollies it would be faster. I see its normal then. I"ll try to upload a video so you guys can point out my mistakes.I"ll try to calm myself down a notch, I am prone to anger when I can"t do something... I get pissed at myself really fast... way too fast...for the amount of time I spend skating, I mean 30 minutes to an hour of trying to ollie lol. I do that indoors because the roads here are too fucked up to skate, I"d have to go to a skatepark and I would like to at least be able to ollie before going there lol. As soon as I can ollie I"ll go to the park tho
You have to know what to practice before you start doing it - makes for less hard work spent figuring it out later on. Once you know the right way, practice what you saw. Speaking of saw, I sometimes think of an ollie like a see-saw type motion. One end goes down, then the other side does the opposite until it levels out. Make sure you jump with it, try and stick every landing. Make it the goal of the day to do that one trick, and eventually you"ll land it, just do nothing else except ollies.

Well I can"t do anything else than failing at ollies anyway XDedit:alright, here it it. There are two attempts in there. first one is how it usually ends, most of the time the board flies forward more than that but yeah... the back foot ends up landing on the ground 80% of the time.Second one is actually one of the best one I landed ever.nevermind the sweatpants... Its saturday and I"m lazy XD. You can just use youtube"s speed function to check it out in slowmo! Nevermind the mess either, its my roommate"s shit and he"s moving out so the place is stupidly messy. XDhttps://youtu.be/25cHpxrximA
Learning to ollie...is really the most difficult thing to learn. After that things are relatively easy. Don"t just stop though. Learn to have a nice, high, solid ollie. So many people can do kickflips and shit...but can"t ollie more than knee high. It bums me out to see people who can do every flip trick...but can"t even ollie onto a curb. *cough* Nyjah Huston *cough*

Yeah i"m still a little weirded out by that. Ollying backside onto a curb at a near parallel angle, never been able to shake this image in my mind of flying forward and knocking my teeth out once my face slides on the edge. Frontside or straight perpendicular seems okay, but backside is like death. It"s probably what held back my progression to doing stuff like bs lip, bs 5-0, bs tailslide, etc..

Seems like the front foot is committing, but the back foot isn"t as much. In the first attempt it seems like you think you"re going to fall so you get it off the board and bail. Getting both feet to commit to the board and anticipate landing it seems like the cure here. If it were me, i"d learn this somewhere the board won"t move but still pop - like carpet, grass, dirt, etc. It appears as though you are keeping your feet both angled, which is something I do when I want the board to turn or flip easier. Go for parallel. Also, moving front foot slightly up the board would offer a little more control, but the pop won"t be as good, and vice versa.

Your front foot doesn"t drag the board high enough to have higher ollies and evened board. Your back foot is just chicken foot for the first try, in the second try it did the job but your foot placements were all bad. Thus you could of fallen cause of feet being too close together.What I can recommend you, is to focus on getting your back foot on board.Ignore the front foot for now, you can work on it once you get your ollies down more or less.It doesn"t look like the board is shooting in front or behind you. Only things you can be given advice on is: Try to land your foot the same place before you did the pop ( In Ollie position ) Since landing will be essential for any tricks anyway, you will benefit from that having to land them easier. Besides your backfoot is kinda chickening out on the first try, so do that. The second thing I saw is you standing in place, while getting ready to Ollie, your board went backwards, which obviously disturbs your balance. So there are 2 things you can do, find a gap where to get at least one wheel in, or actually ride in slow-medium speed a.k.a comfortable enough for starters speed. That should improve your balance, thus making it easier to do Ollie and also land them.Other than that, you are on the right track. Just keep practicing and you will make it.Ollie is one of those tricks which take the most time to learn. Good luck!
