Pop Shuv Its
The pop shuv it is probably one of the first tricks you will ever learn on a wakeskate. Once you get that thrill of the board leaving your feet and then reconnecting with them, you’ll have the bug and it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be big spinning, kickflipping etc. Here are the basics of the pop shuv it.
Edge out into the flats, keeping your knees bent, and then flatten off.
You want to keep the handle held in throughout the trick so that you don’t loose it or get pulled forwards off of your board.
Immediately after you flatten off, scoop your back foot down and backwards and use your front foot to guide the board forward.
Make sure to lift your legs so that the board can pop upwards.
After the board has spun 180 degrees catch it with your feet.
Make sure to keep them spread apart and your knees bent so that you can absorb the landing and not bounce off of your board.
WOOOOHOOO you did a pop shuv!!!!
