a cannon ball is nose and tail at the same time, its pretty hard unless you have a super short board.

in the first pic i think hes doing a cross rocket and a rocket air in the 2nd

See, that makes sense to me about the cannonball, cause that's how they are on a skateboard. That chart just messes with my eyes and head. That first pic still doesn't look like a cross rocket to me, but it's definitely hard to tell.

You just have to match up the numbers for each grab.. I'm sure you've figures that out tho.

A lot of the grabs just don't look right on a snowboard cause you are strapped in and can't tweak them out as much. Japan Air is the one that always comes to mind.

its kinda similar to the crail in that i bone out my front leg but instead of boning it straight out like the crail i kind of suck up both my legs and just poke front foot as far out in front of me as i can. the only reason for doing this, aside from looking steezier when boned, is that its pretty much the only way you can even get your hand in there enough to grab the board. then to counter act your spin you just have to keep your eyes on the landing which will in turn keep your shoulders pointed that way as much as they can.

after you master this grab it was very easy to turn into a back 180 simply by looking back behind you after locking in the grab. when i do this i will still spot my landing in front of me slightly but not quite as much as if i was doing a straight air and then towards the end ill look back behind me. this is to slow down the spin enough so you dont over rotate by looking back as soon as you pop off the lip.
Just wondering what board is that?

I'm bringing this thread back to life after talking about grabs today with some friends and being stoked for next season...


I'm wondering if anyone has advice on my method... I began learning them last season in the video and when I would tweek my board out it would always be at a downward angle.. (seen 0:12) I can grab and stiffen my back back leg out to bring the base around but I would like to figure out how to bring it around and keep it higher and more horizontal.. am I doing this wrong? Please don't count the second jump.. I stalled when I realized I was over shooting the landing.


PS. anyone have a pic of a japan air? and what's the grab of the guy dropping right before me?
