Front Hand Grabs
How do I do this grab?
Front Hand reaches from behind the heel edge and goes between the legs and reaches all the way through to the toe edge between the bindings. Think front hand ‘Canadian Bacon’.
The Taipan is a grab that derives from the Japan Air. Basically, the motion is similar but with a Taipan, the front hand goes between the legs and through to the toe edge, where doing a Japan you go over the top of your front leg. It is a tricky one to snatch onto properly, but it is a whole lot spicier than a straight air Mute grab.
To reassure yourself you are young and limber. Well, it may not be too reassuring, but if you snatch onto one of these and push it out properly you have instantly one-upsed the average grab. Let’s say you always do Frontside 180 mute grabs, replace that mute grab with a Taipan and you have suddenly done something a little quirky.
How do I make this trick look good?
Naturally, when grabbing Taipan on a straight air your tail will probably sag a little as you reach for the grab. Once you have the grab try to poke it out a little and then keep holding on until your board is straight again. This will give the appearance that you are actually in control - and there is nothing better than the facade of awesome!
