And then he bailed to SMA before his Powell model dropped. I always thought it was cool for Powell to release ads with their next pro riding an experimental boards.

The non tuck kneed mute grab is ugly for sure!

This front-side, non-tuck-kneed mute grab would also be known as a stink bug slob.

It's comming off a ramp-to-wall wallride. So in this case, stinkbug-slob is somewhat justified (although Tommy G did those in front of the knee).
