How to Tail Grab Snowboarding Trick Tutorial

In this video I’ve got three tips for doing a tail grab snowboarding. The tail grab is a fun trick you can practice on small jumps, on hips and even on the ground. This can be a difficult trick because you can’t see your tail when you go to grab it, but hopefully these few tips will help you out.
Let’s start by breaking down the tail grab. Ride into the jump with the right amount of speed, pop a clean ollie off the lip, bend you knees and reach your back hand for your tail. Hold onto the grab until you ready to let go and stomp the landing.
The first tip is to practice the tail grab on the ground as you ride. Grabbing your tail as you ride will build your muscle memory and give you an idea what the grab will feel like in the air.
The second tip is to ollie off the lip. Ollieing will make your back leg extend off the lip, then bend in the air, bringing your tail in close, so its easy to go for the grab.
The third tip is to visualize the tail grab. Because you can’t see the grab its important to visualize so you know where your tail will be and where you need to reach your hand. If you miss the grab the first time, have confidence that the grab will be there the next time.

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.
