Bs shove-it trick tip

The shove-it (or varial) is one of the oldest skateboard tricks. It's ideal for beginners, because you don't need the ollie. However, the shove-it can be a good basis for more advanced tricks such as the varial kickflip.

  1. 1

    Position your feet like the image below. Lift up the heel of your back foot and let your toes lean over the edge.



  2. 2

    Crouch down a little and get ready to jump.



  3. 3

    Shove the board 180 degrees over the ground using mostly your back foot. Your front foot should guide the board.

    Jump a little while doing this. No need to go high, the board should sweep over the ground.






  4. 4

    Catch the board again with both your feet.


Tips

  • Try to get exactly 180 degrees or a little more. You can still stop the rotation by catching the board.

  • A short powerful shove is more easy to control than a long wide one.

  • Don't practise stationary, the shove-it feels really different while riding.

  • The faster you go, the more you'll have to push the board forwards.
