This occurs only while skogging but usually not while switch pushing. Skogging is not a straight line pushing movement while it does promote switch foot carving. It's occurs while switching push foot, one foot ends up getting run into by the front of the skateboard and that leads to a "phatto" which is a wipeout caused by errant foot placement.
Oh man, while skogging through the crowds dodging people like a slalom course, i had a nasty phatto and ended up with strawberries on both knees !
