Crabb Nebula?
« on: February 19, 2018, 11:24:01 PM »
Is there any footage of Dave Crabb ( or anyone)  doing a Crabb Nebula? I heard of the trick but have never seen it.
Even an explanation of it will work.

familiar, but I don't recall what the trick was.
This part is pretty damn rad though: (maybe the Nebula is the gnarliness at 2:22?)

I never thought it was a trick....just an ad of him doing something...could be that Losi thing....

Think I remember seeing a feeble on a curb called 'grapefruit grind'

kinda hard to see, but I was seeing that 2:22 thing as a "back D" that lands with 4 wheels on the deck, followed by noseblunt in (extra gnarly on smaller nose).
Maybe I'm wrong though? will rewatch.

Maybe it's time for a Love Note, any Vans reps lurk this subforum?

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down.

This question has been nagging at the rampant skate nerd in me for a while now (keep checking to see if Grosso responded).

Further developments: while perusing a 1989 Transworld (as old skate nerds do), I found a sequence of Dave Crabb doing what would generally be thought of as a Losi grind, but rather than kinda nosegrinding in to it, he's blasting like a boosted b/s disaster, but landing "Losi". (Then pushing in off the nose). No caption other than his name, but I'm thinking that might be it.

Trying to visualize it but it's not quite making sense. Do you think you could upload the sequence?

Damn I wanna see that on video. I feel like it'd look so atrocious that it's actually rad

I honestly think it was in a Toxic ad and it just said Crabb Nebula and it wasn't necessarily a caption describing the trick.....

His fb profile is pretty current.....hit the guy up...

I actually think Crabbs thing predates the Losi come back....I wasn't around for Losi's first run though...maybe he was doing them prior but I don't remember them being a thing....

Did you hit up Dave Crabb?

Got a hold of Dave Crabb himself via FB; direct from the man himself:

"Hey bro, cheers for saying hi, kinda a strange one but ya backside to front truck and nollie in would be the one, it was more of a nickname when I was skating Linda vista ramp and when I did stuff people would say yea nebula and it stuck on that one.still can do them today on vert. Cheers bro"

Thoroughly enjoyed this detective work. Thanks y'all.

very interesting. Think I'm gonna go with Losi if it grinds and Nebula on the stall, seems fair?
