ig88 Thanks Watervilleshred. I had that impression too. Not being offensive, but lots of guys doing awesome ground tricks on youtube look as though they were using some pretty short length snowboards. I suppose short boards do impart an advantage. Cheers Watervilleshred.

Thanks ETM. Yes I follow your logic. I am not sure if everybody has the same definition of cab in snowboarding but I understand your explanation. Cheers ETM.

ETM The name cab only applies if riding fakie and using the tail ( which is now at the front) of the board to ollie before turning IMO. You could also call it a switch nollie in new skool terms. If riding backwards and using the rear of the board to ollie its just switch.

Watervilleshred Any boad in the womens line should be just fine for those tricks.

All the grab tricks are from skateboarding, right?

But regarding cab, if someone is very good in riding switch to begin with, what's the point in naming it like it is (cab)? I think I am still missing something there. Damn me. But thanks guys.
Named after the guy who invented it. He did it first and he did it the best.
