In 1977, 14-year old skateboarder Alan “Ollie” Gelfand invented the ollie—a skateboard trick that would revolutionize the world of competitive and street skating. An ollie is a trick that increases a skater’s airtime, making it possible to pull off more complex maneuvers, such as the frontside 180 ollie.
