How do I do this grab?
Back Hand reaches all the way past the front of your body to the nose.
This trick has been made popular by skateboarders doing ‘Crail slides’ (A backside tailslide with the back hand reaching forward and grabbing the nose). Some people question whether or not a Crail grab has to be right on the nose or if it can just be anywhere in front of the front foot on the toe edge. It is one of the tougher grabs to reach. Here Aj Lawson goes all the way and grabs what we call a ‘True Crail’.
Because backside shiftys rule! The other reason is that this trick looks good in the halfpipe and out of banks/cut-outs. Doing a Crail with a Frontside shifty is also a good looking number. Getting ‘True Crail’ on a Frontside Crail is really one that should be left to yoga folk though.
How do I make this trick look good?
When grabbing Crail it is pretty essential that you bone your back leg out and get into the Backside shifty position. This makes the grab easier too, as it brings your hand closer to the nose as your upper body will be twisted to counter rotate the shifty.
