The Tindy's brother, but grabbed on the other side!
Your back hand grabs just behind your back binding on your heel edge.
Thanks to Tom Court for the action and Susi Mai for capturing it.
The Indy dates back to 1970's skateboarding. It's so old, no one knows why it is called an Indy.
Indy grab is one of the easiest you can do. It's pretty easy to grab the board but if you make it a little bit harder it can look really good. You can do it hooked in or unhooked which is a little bit harder.
The best thing is to pop with your kite at 45º. Now you have to grab your board as fast as you can so you'll hold it more time. To grab it you have to stretch you hand as much as you can to the middle and the front of the board and flex your knees the less as possible in order to make it look better. The most you hold it, the better it will look.
You can also incorporate this grab to other tricks like front rolls, back rolls to blind, front mobes, slim chances etc
