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 placement for the back foot is the back edge of the board. This is the spot where shove it begins.
To be able to perform this trick perfectly, you have to get comfortable with the feet positioning. Try this position on 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.
One you have command over your standing position, it’s time to learn how to bend properly without straining your back. Bending provides increased energy and momentum for proper jumping. You have to bend a little and gather the energy to jump high enough to let the board spin at 180 degree 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 bending your knees, also put your arms to some work. When you bend, your arms go below the knees. Lift them with full energy when you jump to let your body go high enough.
Make sure you hit the tail with your back foot using greater energy because the harder you will hit, the more up board will rise. But here you also need to understand that too much hard hit can lead to flip over so all you need is practice to perform this task rightly. Think of back edge of the board as something on the floor that you are trying to scrape off with your foot.
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 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 right body posture.
