FS (POP) SHOVE-IT

As the name suggests, the fs (pop) shoveit is similar to the bs (pop) shove-it. Here, however, the board rotates by 180° in the other direction (frontside). Most people regard the fs (pop) shove-it as the harder trick of the two. You should be able to do ollies and you should already have done a couple of bs (pop) shove-its in order to learn the fs version.

The placement of the feet is as follows: the ball of the back foot is placed on the middle of the tail and the front one is placed on the middle of the board. The toes hang a little over the edge of the board. Crouch down just like you do for every flat-trick.

Use the momentum of the upward motion to push down the tail in order to pop off the ground. At the same time, the back foot has to initiate the rotation of the board by pushing it away in the direction of the toes. The front foot has a mellower job: all pressure is taken off the front foot and it should be as motionless as possible during the trick.

Once the rotation is complete, the front foot catches the board mid-air.
