How To Safety & Mute Grab On Skis

How To Safety & Mute Grab On Skis


In freestyle there are endless grab
variations to add your own personal style. In this tutorial, we will cover Safety
and Mute grab. To get comfortable with grabs, start with the basic tramp
positions on the ground. Sit on the end of the trampoline with your Tramp Skis
strapped in. Lean back and bend your knees into a tuck position with both
hands over your knees.Grab just above the binding with the same hand as a ski
you’re grabbing. This is a Safety grab. It is the safest and easiest grab to learn
and apply. Try this out on the Tramp. Start low. Your first few grabs may
slip out. Avoid tickling grabs by being sure you are locked into a firm grab. A
full proper grab has at least two fingers wrapped around the ski. B ring the
grab up to you instead of reaching down for the grab. If you drop your chest down
you will land off-balance. Generally, grabbing your boot or binding is
considered bad style.The higher you jump the longer you can hold a firm grab. Next
is the Mute grab. Sitting on the end of the trampoline, cross one ski over the
other. Grab the ski that is on top of the cross with the opposite hand. Be sure to
reach around your knees and grab the upper outer edge of the ski just above
the binding. You want to avoid reaching between your knees for the grab or
grabbing the inside edge of the binding. Once you’re ready, hop on the tramp. Start
with ski crosses in the air before you try the grab.Tuck those knees up into
that Mute grab. Add style by tweaking your graphs. Make
sure you have a firm grasp before you poke your skis out to the side or in
front for your Safety grab. For Mute grab, grab first in that tuck position
before you tweak your hips open and bring the ski cross behind you. For
inverted or off axis tricks, set first in that tuck position. Once you have a
firm grab, tweak your skis back into a laid out position. The more air you get
the longer you can stall a tweak. This tutorial was filmed at Whistler Bounce.
