The Crowmobe is a really good trick to add to your collection of toeside moves.
It's actually a combination of three moves: popping toeside followed by a front roll and finally landing it blind.
The key element for this trick is to get inverted into a front roll.
Let's get closer into this trick to discover the steps needed to initiate the maneuver.
. Place your kite at around 1 o'clock (taking right) or 11 o'clock (taking left) to begin with and try to keep it in a stable position throughout the trick.
. Switch to toeside edge while hooked in landing downwind to unhook.
. Keep the bar close to your front hip and initiate an aggressive pop and push out with your back leg through your toes whilst carving into the wind.
. As soon as you release your edge spring forward and bend your back leg to initiate the front roll.
. Look over your back shoulder and get as inverted as possible.
. Bend both your knees and pull the bar toward your back hip.
. As you drop towards your landing, let go of your back hand and open your shoulders out in the direction of your rotation.
. Using momentum will carry you around into the blind position.
. Aim to land your board downwind for solid landing.
. Pop hard
. Bend back knee
. Get inverted
. Pull bar toward your hip
