i thought popping and ollieing was the same thing. possibly another piece of skateboard terminology skewed by snowboarders.

In skateboarding, "pop" refers to the amount of spring there is in a certain deck, and an "ollie" is the basic maneuver using pop. I didnt know it was any different in snowboarding.
