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.

Position your feet like the image below. Lift up the heel of your back foot and let your toes lean over the edge.
Crouch down a little and get ready to jump.
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.
Catch the board again with both your feet.
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.
