    How does it sound gay?

    Congratulations
    Above the lakes, above the vales,
    The mountains and the woods, the clouds, the seas,
    Beyond the sun, beyond the ether,
    Beyond the confines of the starry spheres,
    My soul, you move with ease

    Awesome job dude. I'm still working on mine. I can do it stationary just fine, but, when I get moving, I ollie high enough to avoid killing an ant perhaps.

    Have a detailed summary of your epic struggles to godhead?

    Yeesss mate! Its nothing to feel silly about announcing it.

    The good thing about skating is there is no podium of tricks as such, a good skate community will congratulate you on your personal goals rather than tricks performed

    Your ollie will get the best cheer and " well done's" over me doing a kickflip.

    Hope you get them higher

    Great dude!
    Many people(including myself) tried to learn kickflips and such first..
    I don't reccomend it.

    Getting the ollie down good gives more satisfaction, then a 1/10 kickflip.
    Like; It took awhile before i could ride around and randomly just ollie..

    Getting the ollie down consistently, is probably the best thing i have ever done.

    Keep on !

    i still remember my first ollie, it was maybe as high as a deck of cards and barely moving.

    congratulations, once you have ollies you're basically a skateboarder forever.

    Good stuff man, just work on the perfection of it while riding, onto and off of stuff. When you those down too that feeling of achievement is insane.

    Congratts.

    I still can't do moving ollies, get stationary most of the time.

    Congrats, it's nothing "gay".
