Learn nollie first if you havent. Focus on leveling your switch ollies, will make them better and will make you more comfortable switch

Yeah, as Jared mentiones with learning the nollie first will help you a lot! Also its basicly like starting to learn how to ollie all over again. So just be patient and practice A LOT because it will most likely take you quite some time to get it down naturally.. happy

I always try to practise switch ollies over or onto stuff, like a book or 2. This way I seem to think less about how the ollie works and more about just leaving the ground, so the ollie will come more naturally!

try nollie smith on a low ledge then work your way up to 5050, 5-0 then nose grind, then you should have switch ollies locked

To be honest, I don't think many people enjoy doing switch ollies. Switch flips are much more easy. I can switch 360 flip into grinds a lot more consistently than I can switch ollie into them.

I suppose just keep practising.

i've been fingerboarding for like 4 years and just a couple months ago I pushed myself to learn nollie & switch tricks. like others mentioned, it's basically like learning ollies and the basics all over again, just in a different stance. learn the nollie tricks first and have them down. then learn how to do them in place. then move on to switch. this really helped me!
i have switch ollie, switch flip, switch tre, & switch front finger impossible down! PATIENCE IS KEY!! What a Face What a Face What a Face

THANKS! Keep at it, and make sure to do a lot of sw back 180s and sw back 90s and like land on the tale on flat using a piece of tape on the table as the "obstacle". Then you will have the moves needed to pull off the sw back tails on like a rail, curb, ledge or whatever. These steps helped me a lot.

THIS - very good pointer Tomás! The sw ollie into nose manual on a box sw ollie out, then going back nollie into manual on the box nollie out and start over back and forth. And switch it up a bit with a few regular ollies into manual or nose manual and fakey ollie into manual or nose manual combos to not do the same combos every time back and forwards. Even do some sw ollies into manual and so on. Every combo you can think of, just keep varying and keep it fun..
