well the spin is totally changed with a grab, so you have to make it work with it. start with a safety, it's probably the easiest. you really just have to bring your skis up as you throw the spin, you can sorta throw your ski up into your hand if you know what i mean, and hold on and stay steady.
but don't just try to spin then spontaneously reach for your ski, you'll probably land on your side
ok, i used to have alot of trouble with those too. what worked for me was just setting your spin and then once you're in the air and spinning fine, just reach down and do whatever grab you feel like doing. you just have to remember to take-off pretty much the same as you would for just a straight spin. dont be intimidated just because you're adding a grab to it, its pretty similar to a straight spin, just remember to grab.
people who have itchy bums wake up with smelly fingers.
just work on making the spin smooth without a grab then once ur like butta start to add a safety..then maybe a mute....then like an inside critical or tail. dont jump to grabs to quick with otu getting smooth thats what I did and my spins got all messed up and choppy...I berly ever grab now
I'm a whole lot more comfortable grabbing than not grabbing. A safety stabilises me a lot in the air and makes it feel smoother. I've tried a few Tanner-style no-grabs and I couldn't do it - I was falpping all over the place. Weird.
