Pop Shove It skateboard with 7 Steps:
To perform this trick, the foremost important thing is to know the right positioning of the feet. Your front foot has to be placed just down from the front bolts, angled out a little. Make sure the heel of your front foot is slightly hanging off the board. The right place for the back foot is the rear edge of the board. This is the spot where shove it begins.
To be able to perform this trick correctly, you have to get comfortable with the feet positioning. Try this position on a regular basis in still posture and once you find it little comfortable, start making little moves. Do not jump into popping as you might break some bones or get serious injuries. First, develop a better understanding of how to work with this feet placement and then begin with next step.
Once you have command over your standing position, it’s time to learn how to bend correctly without straining your back. Bending provides increased energy and momentum for proper jumping. You have to turn a little and gather the strength to jump high enough to let the board spin at 180 degrees before you land back over it. The science of bending is that the more you will bend the higher you will jump.
Beginners are strongly recommended to bend a little and gradually learn their way to an advanced level. Aside from turning your knees, also put your arms to some work. When you bow, your arms go below the knees. Lift them with full energy when you jump to let your body go high enough.
Coming to the front foot, it’s a little different in shove it than an Ollie. Here you will lift up the front foot entirely with the only tip touching the board to maintain balance while in an Ollie, you slide the front foot all the way up to the front edge. With more practice, you can even hover the front foot completely.
To continue riding right after landing back on the surface along with your board, get your feet back in the right position and keep your board at a balance using your arms and proper body posture.
Spice up your skateboarding game and try the incredible pop shove it trick today. All you need to do is to follow every step with great care and proper practice. Don’t jump into performing the trick and first learn the basics. From feet placement to bending to hovering, there is a right way of doing it all. Also, learn to maintain balance while in the air and on the board.
