i am not about to say you are incorrect Joe, but at the same time i do not agree.
i guess it might be down to a lack of comprehension on my part, but i fail to see how you could enjoy any 'pop' at all, unless you have utilised the ollie properties of your board. (are we simply stumbling over jargon here?)
it is the elastic spring that produces the 'pop' of an ollie and a jump alike; otherwise, you are simply riding up the transition of a jump and letting your inertia of an upward trajectory break the hold of gravity, to get you into the air. from then, any leg raising is simply a tuck, so you can apply a grab.
i am by no means a human flea, but those little 'stunts' i have done, have always used pop and usually are flat based (or very slight toe edge bite) on lauching, with the upper body making the rotation.
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
