Today I went out early and was trying grinding and I realized that it is much easier than doing pedal grabs. has anybody else had the same experience?
Ease is in the eye of the beholder.
I find it difficult to do a good rolling hop, which, in turn, makes grinding on things a bit more difficult. I can, however, crankgrab or pedalgrab onto a picnic table on my first try.
I can grind about 10 inches along the coping of a funbox at a local skatepark, what do you grind?

same for me. (thanks to redhead for sending me the grind paltes i got em on)
o and you guys have the same number of posts…
Hmm… Its a tough call. I can’t pedal grab yet, but I haven’t really been practicing it much. I just learned to grind yesterday after about three days of practice, so I guess a lot depends on the person. I found grinding insanely difficult, until I figured out I have to slowly almost ride onto the rail. When I get to the point that if I didn’t jump, my crank would slam into the rail, I then just hop a tiny bit and slide. Now I can get the whole flat rail about 2 out of 3 times.
For me I guess it comes down to what I practice. If I would have practiced pedal grabs that long I’m sure I’d have those too.
