“While many people believe either Koston or Karl Watson to be the inventor of the “crooked” grind, (nicknamed the K-grind after either Karl or Eric K), it was in fact Dan Peterka who invented this trick. Since the name Peterka is somewhat difficult to pronounce, and Koston was seen doing front-foot flips out of the grind a short time after its conception, the grind was renamed “k(oston)-grind” after his mastery of the trick. It was later changed to crooked grind as Koston was too modest to hold a title on a grind that he in fact did not invent.”
