Snowboard Grabs: Roast Beef

The Grab:
Rear hand reaches through the legs and grabs the heel edge between the bindings.

The Tweak:
The classic tweak for a roast beef is to bone out the back leg like you would during a stalefish grab.

Performed By: Blake Paul.

The History:
The roast beef was invented by skateboarder Jeff Grosso, who calls it “the worst maneuver in all of skateboarding,” and is quick to admit that he started grabbing here because it was easier for him than grabbing stalefish. This is the most basic and easiest through-the-legs type grab to learn. If you just bend over and grab that beef it can look pretty lame, but properly tweaked, as Blake Paul does here, these can look good.
