    Use your back foot and push down onto the tail so your front trucks do not touch the ground
    .
    It's fairly easy to get the hang of. Practice on flat ground between parking lot spaces.

    Once you get the hang of that, throw in an ollie and do it
    .
    Once you ollie, lean back on the tail so only the back trucks will land onto the ground.
