This is that kicker under the Quad lift at Caberfae, right along The Canyon/Upper Lift Line.

So I didn't attempt any grabs or anything fancy. I'm sure it will come but right now it's like everything is happening so fast that I don't have time to think about anything except staying balanced and landing.
To tell you the truth, you should work on at least an indy grab. Practice off small hips. Suck your knees up and let the board come to your hand. Once you get used to this and then move it to a kicker, you'll notice you are a lot more stable when you do a simple grab. It prevents your arm from rolling the windows.
