Oxford English Dictionary: The Definitive Record of the English Language
ollie, n. Also with capital initial. [The name of Alan "Ollie" Gelfand (b. 1963), U.S. skateboarder, who invented the jump in 1976.] In skateboarding: a jump executed by pressing the foot down on the tail of the board to rebound the deck off the ground. Also: a similar jump in snowboarding.
ollie, v. intr. In skateboarding, snowboarding, etc.: to perform an ollie.
New York, NY - April 06, 2004 - Alan "Ollie" Gelfand was officially credited for his invention the "ollie". A fundamental 'no-handed aerial' skateboard trick, and the basis for all advanced skateboard tricks - that results in the skateboard rising off the ground and following the riders feet, as if defying gravity.
With the recognition of the Oxford English Dictionary, Gelfand reiterates, "I never realized how many people were affected by one little move an 80 pound kid from Hollywood, Florida made in 1976".
This honor comes at an opportune time as "Ollie" re-emerges as the inventor of the Ollie. Today, Alan lives in Hollywood, FL. and can often be found skating at his private bowl known as, "Olliewood". Visit www.ollieair.com to find out more.
'Gelfands innovation, the "Ollie" has became the single most important cornerstone in modern skateboarding; and adapted into a bewildering range of variants involving differing directions, rotations and combinations'. - Thrasher Magazine
