                         POP SHOVE-IT

A pop shove-it starts like an ollie: the skateboarder jumps up and kicks the tail down in order to get the board airborne but then also pushes the tail of the board to its side in order to get the board spinning. The rest of the trick is like in a normal shove-it.

During a pop shove-it the board gets higher in the air than during a normal shove-it and thus it can be performed while jumping over obstacles. Like any rotating trick, the pop shove-it can be performed frontside or backside, the directions being named in the same fashion as 180 ollies. Unmodified, the name usually refers to a backside pop shove-it. Varial Kickflip, Varial Heelflip, and 360 Flip are all common tricks combined with the pop shove-it. In the case of the Varial Heelflip, it is a frontside pop shove-it, and in the 360 flip it is a 360 degree version of a pop shove-it.

Uh-huh.
