Cab is actually a FAKIE BACKSIDE 360. But since snowboarders mostly pop their tricks (off pipe and jumps), a cab becomes simply a fs 360 switch. Half cab is 180. And anything more than 360 just gets called by the rotation angle.....

To make more sense:
Fakie = going switch and doing an ollie off your front leg
Switch = going switch and doing an ollie off your trailing leg

but snowboarders pop with both legs, so that gets thrown off....
