Skateboarders: How long did it take you to ollie up a curb with 99% accuracy?

Asked by johnpowell (8625 points ) April 16th, 2014

It took me about 2 months of hours everyday in a parking-lot to finally get it consistent (I was 10 years old at the time). I’m curious how others did.

I know it took me less time.

That isn’t to say I was a better skater.

But let’s hear it for doing anything with curbs.

Sure, I did my share of skating ramps but to me street was much more of a pure expression.

The imagination, the inventiveness of skating things that weren’t designed for the purpose of skateboarding was a higher version of skating art.

Skateboards for me means pavement, and pavement means pain, and pain means eventually something will break and it won’t be the board or the pavement. That is why I steer clear of skateboards.
