So I was at the mountain today, having a relaxing time, not doing anything too rigorous, just some 1s and 2s with grabs off little jumps on the sides of runs. So my snowboarding friend, who isn't big on tricks himself, starts asking me, 'What was that?' when I do something. I quickly realize that I havent got a clue what half my grabs are called. So, I start a thread so I can ask you people what it is I'm doing. It may come back if I come up with something new I don't know (almost a certainty). I'm actually not 100% on the tricks I DO know names for, I could be wrong. So help me so I know what to tell people next time they ask.
1. So if you have both feet kicked straight out, it's a rocket, right? What if you do that and grab the inside of the ski on the opposite side near the binding?
2. If you have 1 foot pulled up and one down, and grab the far side of the opposite ski behind the binding, it's a japan right? What if both skis are pulled up? Just a tail grab? cause I've just been calling true tails tailgrabs.
3. If you grab the outside of the opposite ski in front of the binding it's a mute. What about the inside, same place?
by the way, if you want to flame me just for asking questions, please don't post.
