Things to know

This is an okay version I landed.

Throw a backside heelflip but don’t turn your body.  That is how I started popping this trick. This trick has a subtle flick. You need to flip the board inward to the shuvit.  Which means you need to flick the flip before the shuvit is flicked. Instead of messing with all the timing, do a backside heelflip which is an easier flick. Then keep the top of your body from turning backside.

Do a big ollie. Making enough air time for the board to complete the rotation. 

  • Roll in heelflip position.
  • Crouch down.
  • Prepare to make the bottom of your body do a backside heelflip motion and leave the top part in normal stance.
  • Pop and flip the heelflip before the shuvit.
  • Get your feet up and out of the way.  
  • Let the board flip.
  • The rotation should happen 
  • Throw your feet to where the bolts are.

If everything went well the board will flip under you and it will feel good.  Pop high and get out of the way. When you see the flip put your feet at where the bolts should be.


Try doing high floaty backside pop-shuvits and back heels.
Try this trick fakie for an easier pop.
