the other one is called a cuban
JoonasIm confused with all these trailing and leading terms.
Spin left, right hand, right tail, thats a tail grab/blunt
Spin left, left hand, left tail, thats a reverse tail/blunt,
this works just like with mute, why make it any harder?
Spin left, right hand, left tail, thats a cuban/stalefish, and vice versa.
loraxwhat is the difference between blunt and tail exactly?
mattwalkerspinning left, grabbing with your right hand... all of these would be called trailing, reg or following. (all interchangeable terms)
all of these are behind the binding.
outside edge = tindy
on the tail of the right ski = blunt
inside edge = toxic.
inside edge = japan
on the tail of the left ski = cuban
outside edge = stale
if you're still spinning left, grabbing with your left hand, these grabs are then called leading, reverse or opp. (which ski your grabbing obviously switches)
with that said, imo, grab trailing or whiff :)
DaleEarnhardtMute grabs are called regular or reverse/opposite because they are different than tails grabs in that the left hand grabs the right ski or vice versa. With tail grabs you grab the ski closest to your hand so calling them leading or trailing makes more sense. It doens't really matter though as long as we understand what the other person means.
I always did leading grabs and for one season I started to do mostly trailing grabs and now I am doing leading grabs again. They feel different.
