I think that move is called not rollerblading.

J/K its a stale grab or maybe a method

Method ► Grabbing your heel edge with your front hand and pulling that edge up towards your back *named by Neil Blender who described this grab as the method for getting higher air.

Mute ► Grab your toe edge with your front hand while airing backside *named after Chris Weddle, a deaf mute known for being one of the first skaters to execute this trick.

Stalefish ► Grab your heel edge with your back hand, behind your back leg.

Thanks, I'll be saying a little about skateboarding to people who know nothing about it, using this Australian stamp as an example, so wanted to be sure I was saying it right.

Not a problem, mate. If you need any more skateboarding terms, go HERE. Be ready for the really bright red page, though. It rapes your eyes!

its still stale because the hand is on the backside of the board makes it s stalegrab

I was thinking maybe a method because it looks like from his body position he is in transition into a method.

It honestly looks like he is between airing and a trick

semantics.

By the way I'm a reformed boarder

Wrongo Mary-Lou!

Stale grab means grabbing your heel edge with your back hand, behind your back leg. In this stamp photo, he is grabbing the heel edge on the front of the board. Not semantics....it IS NOT the name of the trick. It is a lien grab.

And you call yourself a reformed skateboarder!! Sheesh.

I'll admit i'm wrong stale grab is only in skating. Stale Fish is only in skatboarding there is no stale side they just call it backside ( I was wrong all those years) Plus I've been rolling a long time since I boarded.

but its still not a lein air notice this pic


link for name
Juice Magazine

Lien grab compared to this pic

link for name
skateboard revolution

BS air.
Now which looks like the stamp?

Also notice the def of a lein grab on Wikipedia.
Lein Air Wikipedia

Ok I have looked at enough boarding to last me a long time.
I'm not going to argue skatebaord tricks any more.

I think we can close the argument.

The first picture proves it is a lien air. Your pic shows a lien grab tail slide-►the picture caption says it is a "lien to tail".
The stamp drawing shows that, but while airing and without the tail slide. Therefor, it is a lien air grab.

The first one. But while doing an air, it is called a 'lien air' and not a "lien to tail" like the trick in your picture.

Just proves my point.

Definitely.

its a lien (air) to tail (stall.)

You have to grab the nose and lean out.

Stamp- he is grabbing the BS and not leaning out at all.

lein air See him grab the nose.
Its a Madonna with both feet on.

Just to show you here is a Madonna to tail

Madonna to tail

Honestly this is the dumbest argument I have ever had.

Do you even read your own sources???? In the stamp, he does not grab the nose. He grabs BEHIND the front heel. Regardless, according to your own reference material, you are wrong. Read the definition you posted from Wikipedia. And yes, this is the dumbest argument that you've ever had.

Lien Air

Another of the basic airs. It's a frontside air grabbing the nose or heel edge with your front hand (leading hand). Neil Blender invented the Lien Air, and the name is Neil spelled backwards.

Madonna

A one-footed lien to tail, where the front foot is taken off and kicked out straight down (behind the board), invented by Tony Hawk.


Btw, markjwarman says (your video reference), and I quote "Frontside 360 lein air...I think... " He might be right. Or it might be considered a FS 360 nosegrab since he wasn't airing in a bowl or half pipe. Still, it does not change the trick on the stamp.

No, he is doing a frontside air! His FRONT SIDE is facing out of the half pipe. That is what is called a "Front Side". Once again, you need to read the definition that you posted from wikipedia (below).

Lien Air

Another of the basic airs. It's a frontside air grabbing the nose or heel edge with your front hand (leading hand). Neil Blender invented the Lien Air, and the name is Neil spelled backwards.


Also, you do not grab frontside or backside, you grab heel side, toe side, nose, middle or tail.

Holy carp! Is this an inline forum or what?! Hahaha! You guys crack me up.
I love the wording: "this is the dumbest argument I have ever had." Followed by: "yes, this is the dumbest argument that you've ever had."

Too funny guys! You gave me a good smile to end the night with!
