That "Spring of the tail" is called pop. I know you're an instructor, but this has always been known as pop in skateboarding and as far as i know its the same in snowboarding. It sounds to me like snowboarders have been using the term incorrectly for so many years, it has adopted a new meaning.

As a skateboard isnt attached directly to your feet, there was no term for "jumping".





Anyone know how many times he said pop while teaching an ollie?

If snowboarders have been using the term like that, then it's correct for snowboarding as long as everyone's using it for the same thing. Snowboarding needs a term for the movement that doesn't exist in skateboarding. Maybe we can appeal to the IETF and get an RFC submitted.

Everyone isnt using it for the same thing.

In fact i would say most (park) riders use it in the context that i use it because they skateboard during the off season, and most likely started skateboarding before snowboarding.

You can still jump on a skate/longboard without doing an Ollie, for example an 'early grab' is very similar to a snowboard popping.

Edited for correctness!

Actually (a little slow now, still absorbing first coffee), there's a difference in snowboarding between "pop" the noun and "popping" the verb. Snowboarders do refer to the springiness of a snowboard as "pop", but when you're "popping" you're jumping evenly. So I'm not sure which one we're debating right now.

nothing is skewed, im pretty sure we went through this in another thread a year or so ago and snowboarding just has different terminology because a snowboard is different then a skateboard in the movements it can make.
