The Ollie

The Ollie is a fundamental skateboard trick where the skateboarder jumps off the ground with the skateboard seemingly attached to his/her feet. This is done by rebounding the board off the ground using downward pressure, and then jumping quickly so that the board is able to rise evenly beneath the skateboarder's feet. It is said to have been popularized by and named after skateboarder Alan Gelfand, whose nickname was "Ollie".
