In this episode, Geoff will to teach you another great foundational trick, the frontside 180 ollie.
We'd like to say a big thank you to ATBShop Skate Warehouse for letting us film in their park and Geoff from Rubicon for his time and expertise.
things to remember
Frontside is turning the front of your body around to the other direction
Back foot sits on the tail
Front foot sits just before the bolts slightly favouring the toe edge
Pop the ollie
Using your hips, chest, shoulders and head - swing everything around to help with momentum for the 180 spin
Land with wide feet and bent knees
Don't feel disheartened if you are only reaching 45/90 degrees, keep practicing and you'll get there
