Tricks which require a solid Pop 540: Pop Jacknife
True Kick Terminology:
Taking off both legs from a ready position, the practitioner rotates 540° along the transverse plane while executing an inside crescent kick and landing on the kicking leg. This move is very similar to the regular 540, but with a "pop" setup instead of the "cheat" setup.
This move first appeared on the NCKA circuit in the late 90's and then made its way onto NASKA shortly thereafter, back in the days when a true 540 was a sought-after showpiece. Once regular 540's became commonplace, this trick fell into the shadows of the "old school" tricking book.
