As far as props and steeze go.... the tweaked method is always going to be a go-to.... I guarantee if you rip a method smoothly 9/10 times someone is either cheering from the lift or the bottom... that's just how it goes..

The method is our trick lol.

OK everyone votes for the method but the fact is that not everyone can pull off a Terje method! I say go for the method, but keep working for other grabs. a nice tweaked out crail looks good.

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

Methods, japans, roast beefs, taipans all look good.I like to try to make normal grabs like indys and melons look good by tweaking and boning and stuff

This is my favorite grab to do off of a hip because tweaking it nice sets you up for the landing.

Method, melon, stalefish, and rocket. Japan is nice but Who the hell dose those as straight airs on kickers? Japans go well with backside spins on kickers...

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.
