Best looking grab striaght air?

Well, I am finally landing the majority of my tabletop jumps. I am very excited.

While I am not comfortable enough riding switch to try a 180 landing, and I am scared to skip straight to a 360, I was wondering what you guys
thought was the best looking straight air grabs....

I have done frontside (Indy?) grabs, nose grabs, and tail grabs, but would like to work on something a little challenging that looks cool, not something that will kill me though.

Thanks for any input.

methods, obviously...but for me, especially coming from wakeboarding, its a nice steezy poked out stalefish or roast beef (if they call it that in snowboarding)

yea, methods for sure, but dont worry to much about riding out switch, you can always revert it around which happens naturally as you learn. just try cruizing switch for 30 feet and thats more than enough for riding away from a landing. i revert my 180's around not long after i land unless its a straight path (im comfortable riding switch). If your doin 180's on 30ft. kickers i can understand, but anything 15 ft. or less, you got it, just bring it around, look for your landing, and stomp it, and then revert away. if you do bs 180's, on a small jump, just do a backside 180, look between your legs for the landing, stomp, and then cuz you landed on your toes, you can easily revert your board back to goofy (or regular, whatever stance you are)

I personally think a tweaked stalefish or japan air are the steeziest. If you shifty-tweak your stalefish it looks pretty nice. And japan airs are just nasty regardless, especially if you are spinning.*


*This analysis did not include tindy and tailfish grabs because we already know that they are far and away the steziest possible grabs.

Like everyone else I would say a properly done method. However, I also really love boned crails.
