Known as
Giant forward
Forward giant

About
A low-valued skill at just B, the giant forward exists primarily for the same reason as the backward giant, gaining rhythm in anticipation of a forward dismount like a double front. Although, unlike backward giants, most forward giants are clunky and terrible.

The forward giant will also occasionally appear in L-grip in advance of E-rated L-grip pirouetting, though that version is more valuable
