The mute grab, which involves a rider utilizing their front hand to grab the toe side of the skateboard between the riders feet as they turn backside, is being altered to the “Weddle Grab” in the upcoming remaster of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2. The modification is being made in honor of Chris Weddle, a deaf skater who Hawk said was the very first to do the technique.”I asked him last year as I was diving into technique origins, and he said he would have rather called it the deaf or Weddle get if given the option,” Hawk stated.
