The Grab:
Rider grabs their knees and tucks up like a cannonball.

The Tweak:
Do not tweak, stay in a ball for as long as your airtime allows.

Performed By: Bode Merrill

The History:
The conventional skateboard cannonball grab entails grabbing the nose and tail of the board simultaneously (also referred to as a UFO on a snowboard). This version, however, derives its inspiration from the original, aquatic cannonball. This timeless swimming stunt, probably dates back to the dawn of man wherever early hominoids were looking to make a splash. As it relates to snowboarding, this trick is a comedic mockery of the dreaded knee grabs many riders unfortunately do during multi-corking tricks.
