Wow, for a dictionary the overall quality of the spelling is appalling, but that's a minor complaint.
My real complaint is that it doesn't help me. Remember, a jib goes on the pointy end of a boat. So I found this:
The act of riding on something other than snow, i.e. rails, trees, garbage cans, logs. (by Jason Dow)
OK, so they're riding on trees or cans instead of snow. Makes some sense. I'm not sure how you ride a board down trees or cans, but OK. Then I see this:

When the opening take-off area for a jump, rail, or piece of equipment is cut into and tracks are left by the snowboarders edges when turning before the take-off or lip of the jump. (ie. that ride up to that jib is etched out like crazy, lets go hit some tables.)
I guess that means the word can be used as a noun or verb? I'm still kind of confused. Still confused about butter as well...

This refers to a tail press on flatland or a box. Example: Dude, I totally landed that switch butter!

When you lean on the nose of your board (like a nose manual) and swing the tail of your board in front. E.G. “Did you see that butter to BS 5?”

description of a snowboard with good flex that lends itself well to the butter maneuver
So do you press on the tail or lean on the nose? The two definitions seem contradictory. And why is flex important to that maneuver?
