Front hand reaches around the back and grabs the heel edge behind the back foot.
Typically the nose of the board needs to be pointed downwards in order to reach this tough to find grab. Tweak it like a Method.

This trick makes no sense. The physical awkwardness of reaching this grab has ensured that it has never (and will never) catch on in the mainstream of snowboarding. The exact origins of the Reach Around Method are rather misty, but many will recall Windells digger Austin Leonard executing this grab up on the glacier.
