Default Back 9 nose to tail grab help.

Looking for some tips, I want to do a backside 900 nose grab into tail grab at the 540 point but it throws me off my spin and I end up landing on my heal edge without really grabbing the tail. Any tips? I get off balance once I switch the grab..

You're going to have to go corked to get the rotation and grabs you want. Those grabs are so different in body position you'll have to dip your front shoulder on the take off and do corked 5 nose and once you come through the cork for the last 3 grab tail.

I'm going to guess spinning a little faster would help just because when you reach for your tail you will counter rotate your spin

i cant do what you're describing but maybe it would work to build up to it, getting every stage down - nose to indy, nose to tindy and finally nose to tail.

and i thinks it might be easier to switch the grabs after you've rotated 630 when your board is more level...
