looks like snowboard grabs are next level lol with bloody dracula, dracula method or canadian bacon grabs :lol:
I guess it's small details that make a move stylish or not. Maybe woo v10 would be able to register those one day ;)

A melon grab is specifically a backside grab with a straight front leg and bent back leg. It's simply a backside grab as standard.

Not trying to be a smartass, these are just facts. Let's not allow #fakenews

That Transworld article is funny, it comes with a disclaimer that it may not be accurate! There you go blame clueless snowboarders for the mix ups and fakenews spilling into kiteboarding. All they had to do was walk down the corridors to Transworld skateboarding and have them checked out. Lazy asses.. keep doing that double nose grab bite the nose... and payback will come! Lol

I can't get over how someone could rename a trick that someone else worked so hard to invent. If you make a new trick, it means you have the right to name it whatever you want. And the origins of any grab trick boil down to skateboarding.

I could never see myself calling a stalefish a chicken salad, why? Because I that's not what it's called. And when someone comes on here and tries to tell me it's called a chicken salad, it's pretty disrespectful, not only to me but to the person who invented the trick.

A chickn salad/roastbeef is backhand grabbing heelside in the midle IN BETWEEN your legs. A stalefish is behind your legs. Thats why
