This trick is like the Biggie Smalls of the freestyle world. This is Real Deal Old Skool. The seed from which the discipline developed into the evergreen tree that's now blossoming with insane powermove variants. The LolliPop is actually a variation of the Willy Skipper, one of the very first milestones that set us apart from freeriders.
Bringin' the trick back to our present day, the rotation is actually the same as an eSlider (switch stance Grubby - see the Diablo version in issue 24), but obviously you're outside the footstraps and in regular stance. Once mastered though, this move drips $WAG, just look at Mr Tonky Frans who must hold the World Record for the longest slides ever.
