    The back foot is on the tail, just as we would for a pop shove it
    .
    Let's get comfortable in our pop shove it stance.

    As we're scooping, we're going to take our front foot, slide it up the board and off the side to flip the kickflip
    .
    So, the board spins 180 degrees, and flips like a kickflip at the same time.

    While that's happening, jump forward to catch the board, and stop it from flipping
    .
    So, altogether, we're going to pop, and when we pop, scoop our pop shove it across the ground. At the exact same time, we're going to slide our front foot up to get the kickflip. So, we're going to pop, scoop, and flick so that the boards spins 180 degrees and does a kickflip at the exact same time.
