The secret is after you pop off the lip suck your knees up to your chest. Once you get that comfortably over jumps start grabbing, it will be right there! Last night I was working on my nose grabs, I wasn't able to grab them well before because I was reaching for it but I really worked on getting my knees up first and then tweaking my back foot and boom, the nose was right there and I was grabbing so far over it my wrist was hitting the tip.... great feeling. So ya, pull them knees up as high as you can and you will be able to do any grab you want, don't reach for them.
My season ended very soon after the first jumps were built this season so I didn't get much of a chance. Next season on hips and rollers though, I'll work on pulling my knees up rather than reaching. Thanks for the tip.
