Add some style in your jump with Grabs
When you are able to land some nice jumps with a good hang time, a good pot and good kite control, then try to jump without looking at your kite. Once you land few of them, it is time to try your first kitesurf tricks: The Grabs
Grabs relatively easy and can add some serious style in your riding. Mark Shinn will inspire you to try different grabs until you find your signature one. Personally my favorite is a Stalefish Grabs with a nice and slow frontroll.
- To look very stylish, try to keep you grabs as long as possible
- Grabs using your back hand are easier as you will need your front hand to stair the kite to land.
- Put you hand close to the center of the bar
- Trim kite to full power (old school tips)
You can be creative with grabs. Try to find your signature one. For example, a Nuclear Grad is kick ass tricks:
