The Pop transition is a sequential landing followed by a unified takeoff. Simply put, the performer will land one foot a time and takeoff from both feet at the same time. Pop is also a type of takeoff itself, and describes takeoffs from 2 feet. The pop is arguably one of the most efficient and innately understood and utilized transition in tricking.
The 2016 update of Aeriformmat has reclassified this type of transition as a “Compound” transition, and is one of 2 compound transitions, along with the Reverse-pop transition.
- Pops are extremely common on the invert axis, particularly for flash kicks and fulls. On the vert axis, it is most often used in the backside position.
