How do you get the board to stick to your feet?

Ah! The eternal question that hangs around every skaters neck like an albatross.

Well, let’s see: You pop the tail and jump in the air sliding you front foot forward along the grip and lifting your back foot. Stay level and then bring it all back down to Earth with a slight bend of the knees. Oh, and don’t forget to thank Mr. Alan Gelfand for creating such a move! However, if ever you should choose to mis-use or mis-treat the “Ollie”- you could face legal action because Mr. Gelfand has put a trademark on his signature move.

Will this spark a new trend for pros looking for a fast buck? What does it mean for such moves as the K-grind, Salad, Lien or McTwist..?
