How to Indy Grab Snowboarding – Trick Tutorial

Whats up guys? Kevin here from Snowboardprocamp. In this video I’ve got a few tips for doing Indy grabs. An Indy is when you grab your snowboard with your back hand between you binding on your toe edge. Indy’s are a good beginner grab because your reaching straight down so it easy to stay balanced in the air. I’ve got three tips to help you learn this grab and to make it look stylish.
The first tip is get a good pop off the lip of the jump. Popping off the lip will give you much more height and time in the air to complete the Indy grab. The jump I’m hitting is small, but because of the pop I have lots of time to get the grab.
The second tip is to suck you knees in the air. As you leave the lip bend your knees as much as you can. When you go for the grab you won’t have to reach far because you snowboard will be right there. Bending your knees will also keep you compact and balanced in the air.
The third tip is to tweak out the Indy grab to make it look stylish. Twist your body in the air to get your snowboard sideways and straighten you back leg while bending your front leg to bone it out.
You can use these same tips to make all your grabs easier and more stylish. If you guys have any questions or if you have any tips for Indy grabs you can leave them in the comment section.

My name is Kevin Pearce and I'm the creator of Snowboardprocamp. Since 2011 I've been producing snowboard tutorials for beginner to advanced riders. I taught snowboarding for over ten years and it was the best experience of my life. My reason for creating Snowboardprocamp was so that I could share that experience and make snowboarding accessible to people. I was full-time snowboard coach in Whistler B.C for the eight years. I taught on the mountain five days a week, freeriding with students and teaching them tricks in the terrain park. In the terrain park I have experience teaching everything from beginner tricks in the small park to more advanced tricks on larger jumps. I have extensive alpine knowledge, where I took students through secret powder stashes and off cliff drops. I'm also very experienced teaching beginner riders on their first day and progressing them to an advanced level. Whistler was a great place for me to develop my riding and teaching skills because of the size of our mountains, the amount of snow we get each year, and our long season from November to May.
