How to Backside Ollie

Following on from the Frontside Ollie on transition tutorial we brought you on Monday, Josh ‘Manhead’ Young now talks you through the backside variation!

For a backside ollie, you need to approach the ramp with your front shoulder turned away backside.

When your front wheels approach the curb, then you’ll do an ollie. Bring your knees up, turn in a backside manner.

It might seem a bit more scarier than the front side ollie because your back is towards the curb but you can see your landing sooner because you’re facing towards the transition. You want to land with all four wheels down.

Try to keep your body centered as you hit the transition and ride away.
