Jibbing is messing around freestyling it either on the ground or on rails that may or may not be set up to be messed around on. Also, I think that Rome or Forum are your best options here...

First off, go into a store and get boots. Make sure your toes are barely touching the ends of them, because they'll pack out. You should make sure your boots are your most important piece of equipment. They are the basis for everything.


EDIT- Wait... have you ever even snowboarded before? If so, you aren't getting into the park for a while.

Before you venture into the park, get comfortable riding switch. Learn to ollie over shadows, and random things on trails.
