Nollie

Definition: A Nollie is a trick where a skateboarder uses the nose of his or her skateboard to slap against the ground and pop his or her skateboard up into the air. A nollie is the same as an ollie, but off the nose of the skateboard - thus "Nose Ollie" was shortened to "Nollie".

Nollies are more difficult than ollies, because of balance, the direction the board is going and the use of the front foot to perform the nollie.

Pronunciation: "NAH-lee"
Examples:
"Flying towards the orange cone, Don frontside nollied over it. Zeke didn't even know how to nollie, and knew he would lose another game of SKATE."
