Kidzworlds got some free sports and fitness advice on sports like how to do an Indy Grab in skateboarding.

So ya dig sports but need some help with your game? Don't understand some of the rules of football, basketball or hockey? Got a gripe about P.E. class, skateboarders, cheerleading, coaches, or anything? Why not ?

1Hey Coach,
I have been skateboarding for a few months now, but still can't do an indy grab. I get scared trying it and fall on my face every time I try it. It makes me mad. What should I do? SnoRider

SnoRider,
Learning new tricks can be hard at first, but with practice, you can definitely learn how to do an indy grab. The first thing you need to do is to get over your fear. The way you do that is to practice and ride as much as possible. The more you are on your board, you will have more control and you will feel more comfortable to try new tricks. So whether you are going to the grocery store or your pal's house - always be on your board!

As far as the technical aspect goes, you must be able to do an ollie before you can do an indy grab. It is like trying to walk before crawling first. You have to learn how to get your board in the air and control it. If you know how to do an ollie, doing an indy grab won't take too long to learn.

While riding, make sure to have your front foot in the middle of the board and your back foot at the tail. You want to get as much air as possible so that you will have more time to perform an indy grab. Once you get in the air and do an ollie, quickly reach down and hold the board between your feet. Quickly let go, and keep your knees bent so you will have a smooth landing.

Mastering the ollie and indy grab will set the foundation for learning new tricks. Remember to keep practicing and don't be afraid of trying new things. It may take awhile to get new tricks down, but I guarantee you will nail it sooner or later if you keep at it and don't quit!
