How to Fakie Shuvit
The Fakie Shuvit is a really easy flat ground longboard trick – it’s probably the first to learn. It’s the first “flip” trick to try, and it looks really good with a huge board, so it’s ideal for bigger dancing longboards. Get this sorted and you’ll have a good feel for throwing the board around with your feet and catching it again. It’s great for board control and a perfect first step onto harder things – we’d recommend the 180 no-comply and beanplant next.
The board flips around in this trick, but your body doesn’t – so a symmetrical deck like the Legend or a Freebyrd will be a bonus here, otherwise you’ll have to do another shuvit to get the board back round the right way again.
