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.|

|snowklinger||Its from skateboarding, which is why the literal translation is different. When he invented the trick, skate decks weren't even twin. Many tricks in skateboarding have a naming reason, but in snowboarding some of these reasons are simply that it is carried over from skateboarding (even if the particulars of the physics do not apply or are completely different).|

Many thanks blunted_nose and snowklinger. Got it.
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.
