The Pop: Ground-Level Rescue Kick

The pop is a flick of the foot to rescue a footbag that is close to the ground. The power of this little flick is impressive, sending the footbag back high into the air; however it does expend a good deal of energy.

Pops (or stubs) may be done purely for show -- the energy (and accompanying "pop" sound) of so small a movement is delightful. Often however pops are the only way to recover a footbag that is almost out of reach and close to the ground, in which case the manoeuvre is purely utilitarian.
