If i am pretty consistent with my pop shuv its on a skateboard, will it be really easy to take that to the water and land on a wakeskate, considering i ride switch skateboarding and regular wakeskating? <BR> <BR> <BR>Thanks

its going to feel a lot different but its the same idea. just get solid ollies on the wakeskate and then star trying some shuvs. but make sure you can ollie first

homedawg678 01-10-2008 5:41 PM

yea i can ollie pretty well

nice. just remember to throw the shuv with your back foot. push your back foot down and behind you.and throw it forward so the board keeps up with you. <BR> <BR>keep the handle low <BR>cut out <BR>flatten off <BR>count to 3 <BR>pop it <BR>spin it while throwing it out infront of you <BR>spot the board <BR>catch it with your feet wide(front foot right before nose kicktail and back foot right before the kicktail) <BR>land with your knees bent and handle in at your waist with your elbow bent <BR>and you will ride away.

I did my first shuv on a wakeskate just this year. I'm 40. Never done a shuv on a skateboard either. You can do it.

I can almost stick the pop shuv I usually only get one foot on the board right before I eat it but I was getting close at the end of the season

my problem has been that my feet are too close together on the landings
