Hey guys, I'm pretty new to the park scene and I'm struggling trying to learn how to ollie on skis. I've watched countless tutorials which always just emphasize on jump up HARD, send arms up HARD, lean back HARD (where's the threshold when my back would just eat snow?), and the tail of the skis will take care of it all for ya!
I tried to do all that and all my skis ever do is just that the tips come off the ground, and then fall back down again. The tails just don't bend. If I stand still and lift up one leg and try to just press the tail into the ground it does bend a small bit but just doesn't seem enough.
My question is, does the ski have to do with it? Maybe it's just not designed to bend like other park skis?
My skis are Elan Puzzle TBT, if that helps. http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/fst/item/14elanpuztbt/
