Default What is your "feel good" trick?

Meant to bring this up awhile back...

At the end of our season a buddy and I were talking about certain tricks just "feeling good". I don't mean feels good to land because its banger, but something you do that you can relax and enjoy the whole trick through on jumps, rails, that sort of thing. This isn't about bragging, it's about doing whats just plain fun, to me that's what snowboarding is about, the fun factor. For me its..

Straight jump or hip = Backside shifty, sometimes with lien grab.
Rail/Box = Noseslide nose-grabs (grabbing the nose while sliding with the tail off the side of the rail, facing downhill.)

Just curious what other peoples are.

Well since I haven't had much time to practice tricks I'll go with a simple grab since it's the only thing I've done so far with my limited riding this past season. I like the feeling of floating through the air. I'll update this next season when I'll have a few tricks in my bag

Ah I should've said something about bones, anytime I get one of those "forgot what the hell I was gonna do" jumps I just bone out the front leg

To me, it's popping off of a big natural jump, making a simply grab and just seemingly hanging there in the air forever then coming down into two feet of fresh pow. That's where it's at.

switch fs lip 270 out, and regualr fs board
for jumps it would just be a melon grab, or a backflip in some situations

I love to just ride vertically up walls and 180 off them.

My recent feel good trick is the suitcase grab that I picked up that you can see in my avatar. Other than that, it is a good nollie tailpress with a tail grab anywhere down the slopes.
