how to make grabs

Postby fsukite » Mon Dec 08, 2014 1:09 am

does anyone have some tips on how to achieve this feat? i can land big pops off waves but if i try to make the grab the board just goes fling. toe side grabs easy with boots, would it be easier to try toe side or heel side for strapless? could it be easier on a wakeskate?

cheers

sounds like you just need to absorb the board more by bending your knees further to your chest.. a heelside grab may be easier with your front hand and a toeside grab might be easier with your back.
