If you got major balls go for the super-fly method. instead of your regular method grab, keep reaching deep and grab the toe-edge of your board instead of the heel-edge; your whole forearm will be crossing the base of your board
omg! thanks david_Z, i was looking for the name of that grab for the longest time. I haven't begun to tweak it in the air yet but when I do my "methods" I actually reach around the base and grab the toe edge. I find that its easier because you can hold the grab with just your arm. The board always slips out of my hand when I grab heel side lol.

That's one sick method

SAddiction A nice tweak out (board perpendicular to the mtn) is classic

SkylineGTR Nose crails are the sickets grabs ever. Still haven't been able to do one.. requires some good reach and board control.

Music Moves Crails are sick grabs, especially when leaned into really well. I also like lean methods (kind of a back shifty with it) a lot. My favorite to do is a stale shifty, but the lean method is a close second.

Shifties in general are a good idea for you to start doing as these will help with forming into a grab and a nice bone or tweak in the future.

Sidenote: The mute is an under-appreciated grab in snowboarding.
