I just recently got consistent landing backrolls and rolls to reverts. I want to try to throw a grab with it. which ones are the easiest to learn?

method....looks best w/ roll2revert.

nosegrab w/ back leg poked out on backroll.

I would think a nose unless you do mexi style.

what the deal with the mexican roll I've heard people talk about it, but don't know what it is. is it like a backroll?

Instead of doing it like a cartwheel oh a Heelside br its like throwing your head to you feet like a front roll almost. If you do them mexi style then indy would be your grab of choice.

i do mexi, and it makes you pretty heavy dependant on ure front arm, so indy could work!

nose, probably, though never been able to grab mine...side question: is a method r-2-r somewhat of a mis-name? you're not really doing a method...

when i can get the grab i find that slatefish is the easiest for me on a mexi-roll

similiar to what brian said, i don't think method is an actual grab. i could be mistaken, but i thought the term "method" implied a melon grab with a backside air. so it would be a melon r2r, not a method r2r?

oops, thanks joe. i was obviously thinking of a method air which can be a melan grab combined with a backside air

The only grab I have been able to pull on my BR is a lein I guess. Now if I could just put together landing it and grabbing it at the same time!

when do you go for the grab? when your going up, upside down, or coming down?

Right from the start, that way you'll have more grabbage time equalling more style

the sooner u can get the grab the easier it will be. jus remember to suck ur knees up to u, dont reach down for the grab. this goes for all grabbed tricks

Old     (bendow)      Join Date: Sep 2005       04-04-2006, 8:28 PM Reply   
whats a roast beef?
Old     (srh00z)      Join Date: Jun 2003       04-04-2006, 9:06 PM Reply   
Roast Beef is grabbing between your feet on the heelside of the board, but through your legs, I think it is with your right hand if you ride left foot forward, but I am not sure. I vote for the nose grab with the poke, a la Shane Bonifay.

if your doing a regular backroll do a nosegrab, if your doing a mexican backroll do an indy with it.
