How to do Frontside 360 Pop Shuvit trick tips

Frontside 360 Pop Shuvit, the name pretty much tells you what’s going on in this trick. It’s similar to a frontside shove it, but this time you’re going to be sending the board in a 360 degrees spin rather than a 180.

It’s really important you have a solid frontside pop shove, as this trick is essentially just a spruced up version of it.

Set your back foot up similar as you would for a regular shove it, but scoot it a little bit closer to the end of the tail. Make sure that you still have a firm plant on the tail with the ball of your foot however, as this will be doing most of the work in this trick.
Put your front foot just a little bit above the middle of your board. Usually a few inches above the middle of the board (towards the front bolt) is a good spot. Put it at an angle of about 45 degrees, with only a little bit of heel hanging off the deck.

1. Push a few times. Ride at a comfortable speed and have your feet set up as explained above.

2. Once your moving put your back foot flat across the tail, and your front foot pretty close to the front truck bolts, farther back once you have the hang of it.

3. This trick is done for the most part with your back foot. Bend your knees, pop the tail and while popping push your back foot out in front of you harder than you would for a Frontside Shuvit so that it can spin the extra 180.

4. Also, when you’re learning this one you might have to ‘tic-tac’ a little bit in case you don’t get an entire 360 degrees rotation. As long as it’s straight enough to maintain riding motion, you’re all good.
