ollie variations in columbus circle

"There was a skatepark in Hollywood, Florida back in 1978 that was built so crappy that a lot of the stuff was over vertical and uneven.

When you'd zoom down this run, you'd fly out and it would pitch the board back to your legs and you'd bend your knees back in and the board would come back to you.

It was all by accident, really."

– alan "ollie" gelfand
gelfand invented the ollie, the most basic trick in skateboarding, typically learned first, with numerous other tricks based on it.
