    Post Pressure Flip Before Shove-its

    Still i somehow cannot land my shove its to the full 180... i practically can either kick it 180 and miss the board completely or Land it 90 somehow xD anyways.
    A Few weeks back, i spent a whole session trying to perfect my shove-its and in anger at the end i took my front foot off toeside and slammed my kicktail down, flipping the pressure flip, as it landed and rolled off somewhere, i thought it would be funny just to keep on doing that and see if i could land it, and after a few flips, i could land it pretty easily with no difficulty... But still no Shove-its... .
    (Might be something im doing wrong, that im not noticing,:ill take some vids of it and assess it and cut the frames up and what not... :P).

    Do you want to do tail shove its or nose shove its? If you're doing tail shuvies then put your board on the edge of pavement and grass and practice doing them into the grass. After you get everything down and have them on lock then move them to doing them on the pavement, then doing them while you're rolling.

    For nose shuvies, practice your frontside nose pivots and then after you have those on lock, then just do half of a pivot, jump off your board then land back on it riding regular. Just keep practicing and you'll get the hang of it.

    Weird, I always find shuvits best off the nose backside.
