The 360 Ollie (or just "360", as most people call it) is where you are skateboarding along, and then you pop the board up into an ollie super high, while spinning all the way around in the air, and land rolling the same way you started. Most 360 ollies are done off of high curbs or ramps, because you need an awful lot of hang time in the air to spin all the way around.
Here's what you'll need to already know, before learning to 360 ollie:
- Know how to skateboard. Of course. But you need to be pretty intermediate, at least, before tackling the 360 ollie. You want to be confident on a skateboard, have good balance, and know how to take a fall without getting too hurt.
- Know how to ollie. Again, of course. But you want your ollies to be high. You need to be able to stay in the air long enough to spin all the way around!
- Know how to 180 ollie. Make sure you feel very comfortable and confident with your 180s, before you move on to 360s.
