The other day I landed my first proper Pop Shovit. It’s probably one of the most basic on-the-flat tricks you can do, but it’s a start. I say “proper” because I got a good clean ollie – the board wasn’t sliding round while in partial contact with the floor.
I’ve been learning the trick by spinning the board front-side, which I’m told is harder than sending it spinning the other way… I guess I’ll find that out as I learn to spin it the other way.
Anyway, I hope to follow this post up with some footage of my new trick. You’ll see then that I’m far from having this dialed – but it’s going in the right direction.
