Bs 180 early grab trick tip

Early grabs (also called "oldschool grabs") have been around for a long time.

They don't require ollies and they're not that difficult.


(Video by Sandro)

  1. 1

    Drop in (or ride at high speed towards a quarterpipe). It helps to go at an angle.

    As you ride up the ramp, grab the board. Any grab will do, so just take an easy one to start.


  2. 2

    At the top of the ramp, jump and pull the board up. It's a little difficult to jump while holding the board, but you don't have to go very high.

    Try to turn 180 degrees in your jump





  3. 3

    Let go of the board as you land. It's ok to land at an angle again.


Tips

  • Practise below the coping first and keep going faster every time you try, untill you can do it over the coping.

  • If you start at an angle and land at an angle, you only have about 100 degrees left to rotate in your jump.
