How to Progress Without Spinning: 9 Grabs You Have to Stretch For

Nick Hyne and Trick Bag take us through why these weird grabs are making a comeback

How do I do this grab?

Back Hand goes down in front of your body and grabs between the bindings on the heel edge.

Jeff Grosso Invented the Roast Beef grab. In his very own words he says “I am probably guilty of inventing the worst maneuver in all of skateboarding – The Roast Beef Air…I couldn’t do a stalefish”. Just because Jeff Grosso isn’t a fan himself doesn’t mean you can’t dabble..well dabble long enough to tick a Roast Beef off your tricklist. Then you are free to never to do it again!

Why Roast Beef?

As Jeff points out – this is a good trick for those people who can’t get that hand all the way around their back leg and grab stalefish. (For Stalefish see trick 4 in the ‘Basics’ of the JUMPS section in the Trick Bag.)

How do I make this trick look good?

Add a Frontside shifty. This not only gives the trick an element of style, but it also makes the grab easier to reach and then poke out for as long as possible.
