Nah Im pretty sure that doing a trick off of the nose whilst riding switch is fakie, off the tail whilst riding switch is just switch. Well when people are discussing it anyway, people would say switch 900 and then if its actually off of the nose and fakie a Cab 900.

Essentially If your regular, in your normal stance any tricks off of the tail are normal and off of the nose are Nollie. Then when you switch round to right foot forward any off the tail (previously the nose) are switch and any off the nose (previously the tail) are fakie.

And you don't need one. Any board will work.

Sorry my "old school" definitions of twin tip are a bit different from the term nowadays... there was a time that not every snowboard had two ridable ends...
