How to Do a Shuvit | Fingerboarding


Hi. My name is Taylor Rosenbauer. I’ve been traveling all over the United States
to fingerboard competitions, demos, and I’ve appeared on MTV and just having a great time
with this really fun hobby. I’m taking a trip to Germany, competing at
the world championships for fingerboarding. Today I will be demonstrating fingerboarding. Shuvit is one of the first tricks you want
to learn when you first decide you want to learn fingerboarding because its certainly
one of the easiest tricks and it helps you get a lot of control over your fingerboard
when you first start. The trick involves spinning the board 180
degrees. Now your hand does not move at all during
this trick. In rotation, it stays flat with the board. To do the shuvit, you want to place your hand
on the fingerboard with your back finger right on the tip of the tail, and your front finger
right behind the front 4 bolts. You want to do a scissor kick motion with
your finger, back towards you, and that’s gonna make the board spin 180 degrees. One of the most difficult things about learning
the pop shuvit, after learning the shuvit, is how to pop the board off of the ground. Now, like the shuvit, you are still spinning
the board 180 degrees, but with this trick, you are actually popping the board into the
air, catching it, and then rolling away. A lot of people are frustrated because they
can only spin it on the ground and not actually get it into the air. The way to do this is you have to snap the
back of your board off of the ground and if you don’t hear it snapping on the table, then
you’re not popping it hard enough. The finger positioning for the pop shuvit
is your front finger right behind the front 4 bolts and your back finger right behind
the back 4 bolts. You can really keep your back finger where
ever feels comfortable, but I like to keep mine right behind the back 4 bolts, but some
people like to put it all the way at the tip. Once you pop it off the ground, that will
get it into the air. You can guide it by turning your wrist slightly
as it begins turning, and once it comes around, try to catch it in the air. Catching it means stop it from rotating with
your 2 fingers and then bring it back to the ground and ride away. And that’s how you do the fingerboard pop
shuvit.
