10 Snowboard Grabs – Snowboarding Trick List
10 Snowboard grabs you can start adding to your snowboard trick list. I’ll go around the snowboard breaking down all the basic snowboard grabs and a few more technical ones too.
Lets start with the tail grab. This is where you reach your back hand to grab the tail of your snowboard. To add style to the snowboard grab and to make it easier, tilt your board by straightening your front leg as you bend your back.
Next go for the Indy by grabbing your toe edge with your back hand, between your bindings. The Indy is a good beginner snowboard grab because you can do it off small jumps.
Similar to the Indy is the Mute grab, with the difference being you’re grabbing your toe edge with your front hand. Add some style to the Mute by straightening out your back leg to poke out your tail.
Combine the Indy and Mute together to go for a Gorilla Grab. This grab isn’t very common, but it’s a lot of fun, especially if you straight both legs and make it into a stiffy.
Next go for the Nose grab. This is where your front hand grabs the nose of your board. By bending your front leg and extending your back you’ll tilt your board and make this snowboard grab easier with more style.
Once you get comfortable with the nose grab, bring your back hand to your nose and get the Rocket grab. The key for Rocket grabs is flexibility so do some stretching to help pull it off.
Next take your front hand and grab your heel edge between your binding for the Melon grab. Ad some style to the melon by straightening out your front leg to poke out the nose of your board.
Build on the Melon by going for a Method grab. The difference is in the method grab you twist your board around in front of you and stretch your back foot away from your back hand.
Another basic snowboard grab and one I like to do on hips is the Stalefish. For this grab you back hand grabs your heel edge between your bindings.
Finally ad some creativity to your grabs by doing a double nose / tail grab. This grabs easier to do when you’re comfortable on big jumps, where you have lots of air time to get both grabs in.
So start adding some of these grabs into your trick list! If there’s a snowboard grab you want to learn that I didn’t cover, leave it comment section and I’ll add it to the next grab video. Thanks for watching guys!

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.

How to Method Grab Snowboarding – Tutorial Video
In this video I want to teach you how to do a method grab snowboarding. Methods are one of my favorite grabs to do, they’re super fun, especially if you can really tweak them out. There are four parts to the method grab that all come together to make the grab happen. Grabbing your board, bending your knees, your back hand coming forward and your back foot pushing out.
To start just like any other grab you want to get a good pop or Ollie off the jump to give yourself time in the air to complete the grab.
Grab you board with your front hand between your bindings on the heel edge. Bend your knees at the same time to get the heel edge closer to you. This will also turn the base of your snowboard from facing down to sideways.
At the same time as you’re grabbing your board, you want to be reaching your back hand forward. As your back hand reaches forward it’s going to make your body start to twist. Your upper body twists forward as your lower body twists backwards pushing your back foot out. This twist is what completes the method grab, and gives it style.
When you first start practicing method grabs try breaking it down so you perfect one part at a time until you’ve got all four parts locked in. let me know how your method grabs go, do you still have any question, and what video should I make next. Thanks for watching!
