That used to be the holy grail. The 360 degree ollie on flat street, no elevation, no sliding around on landing. No matter how hard you tried you couldn't get all the way around. No cheating with some revert.

I've been out of the game for a long time, but there is a commercial for elementalskateboards and dude lands a 360 ollie perfectly.

by 360 ollie, do u mean just a 360...with the board under your feet (attached basically) the whole time?

thats really not hard at all....considering im fat and can pull a mean 180 very cleanly...and i havent skated in about 5 years...just give me 30 mins to warm up

180s can be done in your sleep all day long. This is a regular 360 ollie.

I can do frontside 180s decently enough... I've tried a few frontside 360s but couldn't keep the board with me. I guy I used to skate with back in the day could/can do 360s.

Do you mean jump and a 360 spin, or do you mean jump and a 360 backflip? If it's just a spin, then that's been done for ages. Heck, i knew people that did it like 15 years ago when i skated.

Rotating 360 degrees when doing an ollie on a skateboard, on flat ground.

Easy in tonyhawk video game, virtually impossible on a real skateboard.

No. a 360 ollie.

Ollie and you and the board rotate 360 degrees together in the same direction. It's easy off a small jump or incline, but on flat ground...was at one time the holy grail.

Like i said, that was done when i use to skateboard. I could never do a 360 flat off the ground, but with a high enough curb, i could do it onto the street... but i certainly knew more than a few that could.

That does seem pretty hard.

I like to think Rodney Mullen could do it though. That guy is just fvcking amazing.
