Grabs with BACK hand on the middle of the board, between the feet, on the side of the board where his toes are pointing, while turning BACKSIDE.
Originally called the Gunnair, by Gunnar Haugo in 1977. In 1980 the trick was renamed Indy air, and often used e.g. by Duane Peters who was sponsored by Independent Trucks at the time, hence the name Indy.
If the board is grabbed like this during a frontside air, the trick is a “frontside air”, as opposed to a frontside Ollie(no grab).« Back to Glossary Index
