Simon's Skate Tips :: How to Pop Shove itBy: Simon
So ya love skateboarding, but still haven't mastered the ollie? Having problems landing your kickflip? Why not and he'll get an answer for you.
[Rating 1, zone]Hey Simon,
I see all the sick skaters at the skatepark doing Pop Shove-its all the time. I want to learn how to do one, do you have any tips?
You are exactly right, the Pop Shove-it is one sick trick! A Pop Shove-it starts off like an ollie before the skater jumps up and pops the tail of the board, making it flip 180 degrees before landing on it. If you want to be a respected skateboarder someday, you are definitely going to have to learn how to do one. However, this trick isn't for beginners. You must be comfortable on the board and have already mastered the fundamentals of skateboarding like the ollie and the backside. Here are some step by step instructions how to pull a Pop Shove-it!
If you don't get it on the first time, don't sweat it! This takes a lot of patience and practice. The most important thing is to be on your board as much as humanly possible. The better you can control the board, the easier it will be to learn tricks like the Pop Shove-it!
Do you need some cool skateboarding tips?, to Simon. He might not no everything, but he's been skating for a while and certainly knows more than your Mom does. Remember: never push mongo, and always wear a helmet.
