This awesome grab will really show off your mastery of the park but is easy to achieve. In the sixth of Ninja Academy’s snowboard skills series, Matt Barlow demonstrates how. If you have basic grabs down, such as the indy grab (where you grab the toe-side edge between the feet with your back hand) then you’re ready to work your way up the board and try a nose grab. Ninja Academy Snowboaring skills video Grabbing the tip of the board while maintaining the perfect position For this trick it’s crucial to focus on bringing the nose of the board to your hand rather than trying to reach down for the board – bending your front leg and straightening your rear leg will bring the tipof the board towards you. Once you’re comfortable with this move, try reversing it for a tail grab. This time pull the board up by bending your back leg and straightening your front leg, then grab the tail of the board with your back hand.
