How to Indy Grab – Snowboarding Tricks Regular

What’s up guys? Kevin here from SnowboardProCamp. In this
video I’ve got a few tips for doing Indy grabs. An Indy grab is when you
grab your snowboard with your back hand, between your bindings,
on your toe edge. Indy’s are a good beginner grab
because you’re reaching straight down, so it’s easy to stay balanced in the air.
I’ve got three tips to help you learn this grab and to help you make it look stylish. The first tip is to 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 grab. The jump I’m hitting
is small but because of the pop, I’ve got lots of time to get to grab. The second tip is to suck your knees up 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 your snowboard will be right there. The third tip is to tweek out the Indy grab to make it look stylish. Twist your body in the air to get your snowboard sideways and straighten your back leg while
bending your front leg to bone it out you can use the same tips to make all
you got 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 comments
section. Let me know if there are any other grabs you want to learn. Subscribe to see more trick videos.
Thanks for watching!

    I think instead of just doing a pop off the jump, it is easier to do an Indy grab by doing an ollie off the jump because you naturally suck up your knees.

  17. Ayden Dakiller says:

    last time i did an indy grab (regular), i ended up doing a half barrel roll and ended upside down. lucky it was an airbag but do you know what went wrong? i was doing everything you said like flat board and i didn't lead back or anything.

    Thanks for the motivation to try the indie grab! Yesterday I landed 9 out of 10 on the first day of ever trying! Although mine was not much of an indie grab, but more of an Indie tap, I only tapped the snowboard. This is what I did:
    1. I practiced straight airs on a small jump for 3 hours straight, every time I tried getting my board closer to my shoulders. When I had 5 smooth landings in a row I proceeded to the next steps.
    2. On flat snow, I quickly reached down to my board and touched it multiple times, to know what it should feel like.
    3. I made carving heel turns and grabbed my board along the whole turn, I did that about 5 times
    4. I did a couple of ollies on the way down to my first indie grab attempt, focusing on smooth landing.
    5. I went for the indie grab. I tapped the board in the air, but landed too far on my heel edge, catching it and falling.
    Then the next 9 times it worked for me, I landed them, each time touching my snowboard a little bit longer. The next step, to make it an actual grab instead of a tap, I'll probably have to increase speed or pop, but I'd rather practice my other skills at lower speed first.
    Do you like these kind of reports or should I keep them to myself?

    Not an Indy just a frontside grab. For it to be Indy it's has to be backside spin or backside hip or half pipe wall.
