The History:
Pin pointing the exact origin of the ball grab gets a bit hairy. In many snowboard sessions throughout the years, balls have been grabbed with the aim of making people laugh. One historically notable ball grab dates back to 1994 when Northwest legend Matt Donahue frontside 360 ball grabs at Mt. Hood in Mack Dawgs Upping the Ante. In modern times, Fritdjof Tischendorfs handy work has explored similar, non-grabbing versions of the crotch region, leading to the birth of the Jerk Flip.
