The full hop of Kirby is crap.
Basically, in order to reach a plateform (think Battlefield or Poke Std 2) you have to wait the end of the Full Hop before you can move again on the said plateform, you got like 1-frame window of waveland, good luck with that. And the full hop is pretty slow.

BUT if you rapidly double hop (Up then X or Y right after), you'll be just above the plateform, so you can waveland on it, and act WAY faster than with the full hop.
I made a video, 'hope it will be enough for you to understand this (new ?) technique (I didn't see any Kirby players do it) :

Pretty sure full hop swallow is almost always better. It covers every option waveland swallow does, without having to deal with swallow's endlag putting you at risk while on the platform
