I just can never tell with this trick.

Regular 8.25 setup - 40 tries and I'll land 1 janky one

First time on an 8.5 (almost egg shape) setup - 2 tries and I roll away



Egg ish boards scoop a bit better. I know this is a little but uncommon but I tend to tre a bit better on longer wider boards too, am tall with long legs so it helps me not overspin/flip.

It's so frustrating. For me, it's all about the first 5-6 tries. After that, the flick just gets progressively worse.

What's so hard is I know people can do them so easily, it seems like it takes no effort at all, just a little scoop and pop. Meanwhile I need to focus my entire body to maybe get one around and I don't understand why!!

Its about having the correct weight distribution, and coordinating the scoop/flick with the jump. If all those pieces line up, it really doesn't take much more effort than a pop shuvit besides maybe staying in the air for a moment longer.

I'm at a similar point with sw tres. Most attempts feel like they take so much effort and don't work too well. But the ones I do land well feel pretty chill, like I didn't have to try that hard. Probably due to me having the exact right configuration/technique.

I know thats not too helpful because its vague, but know that there's a certain feeling to strive for when you practice them where it doesn't feel like too heavy of a trick

Yeah, that does make sense. I haven't figured out that point yet. I think I need to start fresh and sort of relearn them, they way I do them now the flick is really consistent but I don't get my front foot around for the catch, the board stays behind me.

Have weight over the back (tail) a bit more before pop.

As for that feeling of it taking your whole body to get the board around, I recently had the epiphany of detaching the bottom half of my body from my top half for scoop tricks. Try to keep the top half as still as possible and don't let your legs determine the trajectory of your entire body. I find landing a lot more stable when I keep this in mind.

Lots of room to land too. Iím on the 9.25 rn and am enjoying the lack of toe/heel drag
