I’m not sure if that’s how you spell his name, but I asked this Grommet would he do a few aerials so I could take some photo’s and he did.
A frontside aerial is performed by grabbing the skateboard firmly near the center of the board and pulling up really hard to jump off the riding surface (here it’s a skate ramp), getting air. At the same time you should push down hard with your feet so that you “stick” to your skateboard like Glue. Turn your head and shoulders in the direction of the aerial and then look down at the ramp where you want to land. Let go of the board before you touch down, or you might keep rotating through the air and land a bit sideways causing you to fall or “slam”.
