But I'm sure one of the guys can break the grabs down better for you.
Thanks I'll work it out on the bigger jumps next season. I started trying for them in the spring last season so it was getting pretty sticky but the small park was still fun. Like I said I got the base of my board downhill. People on the hill say they look good but they still aren't a real method. Ahh now it's time to wait for snow.
Do you not need a shifty in order to pull off a method?

Isn't the chicken wing a tindy tweaked to the extreme though. Or is the chicken wing around the board and then grab tindy.

they're different in the way you orient the plane of the board, but both involve getting your back foot more "out in front" or "downhill" so the shifty is a way to practice getting used to it without the larger air that a method requires to get it all the way around.

no, you grab indy but with your arm on the outside of your back knee instead of the inside, then tweak it back. much like how you are suppose to grab a japan air but with your back hand instead of the front.

so... are you saying grabbing with your back hand toe side on the outside of your back binding is still an indy?? that's how I interpreted it.

You put your LEFT foot on the YELLOW dot, your right hand on the GREEN dot...

i meant to say grab indy but with your arm on the outside of your back knee, which gives you the ability to tweak it back.
