The Grab:
Both hands grab the nose of the board with arms crisscrossed.

The Tweak:
Same as a normal cross rocket, but rider does a backflip.

Performed By: Phil Hansen

The History:
Rocket Air backflip variations have been around for decades (see Rocket Air). Whenever a good old fashioned backflip session is going down, and different grabs are being inserted, the nose comes pretty naturally into the front hand. After a few nose grab backflips have been successfully landed, the rocket and crossrocket follow suit rather nicely – although grabbing nose with the rear hand mid-backflip is considerably more difficult.
