How to Frontside Pop Shove It

Ready to expand on your solid bag of basic street tricks? Then get ready, as Josh ‘Manhead’ Young helps you master the frontside pop shove it. 

For Frontside Pop Shove-It, your back foot needs to be on your tail, with your toes roughly in the middle of your board; your front toes halfway up with the toes hanging off a tiny bit.

Pop it with your back foot, scoop it around, and your front foot’s really there to guide it because a lot of it’s in your back foot. When the board’s been pop, scooped, use your front to guide it around a bit, and then catch it with your front foot. When you’re ready, put your back foot down, and land it.
