Tom is a ripper! Who knew?
In case you were wondering: YES, that's the same phat deck Marty McFly had in Back to the F. Bought it at KMart.

My mistake! Now I know.You silly youngsters! When it's frontside there is no need to call it an Indy. It's just a frontside air or frontside grab. only called an Indy when going backside.
You don't call a backside grab a backside lein air do you? No. you don't. i hope.
I do know the difference between mutes and slob grabs, though!
Indy airs are hard. Frontside airs not as much. backside airs are easy. Mute airs not as much. Lein airs are nearly impossible. Such is the strange world of skateboarding.
I bet Tom's best air trick was the Gay Twist.
Lein to tail when you cheat and grab the nose, I can do. It's just a cooler version of a sweeper I guess. I proper lein air over coping on vert? Nope. never. Scary shit. I don't like any trick that doesn't allow me to see my landing point.
And the way you have to lean so far into Indy airs freaks me out. And lets not even get started on Egg Plants. I had nightmares about Egg Plants as a kid. I wanted learn them so bad but could never commit.
And I never liked any air tricks that required me to land fakie. Like Bean Plants to fakie? Fuck that shit, son!
I have a deathly fear of airs to fakie on vert.
They keep opening new parks around here. My old ass knees can't keep up.
