In this video, you will learn how to do a shove it.

Do to a shove it, follow these three steps: spin your board, do a shove it on the spot, and do a shove it while skating.

First, spinning your board.

Place your dominant foot just before the front bolt, turned slightly outwards.

The heel should be over the edge of the deck.

Put your back foot on the tail, with your toes slightly over the edge.

Bend your knees to add strength to your jump.

Your centre of balance should stay in the middle of the board.

Straighten your knees and simultaneously push off with your back foot to slide the board backwards, as your front foot pushes the board.

Your board should turn on the ground.

Land next to your board. Keep practising this until you can turn the board perfectly.

Secondly, doing a shove it on the spot.

Position yourself as before.

Slide the board to turn it 180°, bending your knees to give strength to both the rotation and your jump.

When you jump, make sure you lift your back foot so it doesn't get in the way of the board's rotation.

Jump forwards slightly, following the movement of the board.

Bend your knees as you land and find your balance.

Thirdly, doing a shove it while skating.

While skating, reposition your feet as in the previous step.

While jumping, make the board spin.

Make sure you lift your back foot so that it doesn't touch the board, and keep your arms free to follow the motion of your body as you jump.

Jump forwards slightly, following the movement of the board.

You can also practice this trick using a deck without trucks.

Shove its can be tricky to start with, but keep practising and you'll soon master them!

Over to you!
