Terms like:

Jib, freestyle, free ride, mute, boned

I need snowboarding dictionary to understand what I'm reading and hearing

Jibbing is pretty much grinding on objects with a snowboard? like trees and such.
free riding I guess is like just riding for the ride? not so much tricks or anything just riding where you want.
freestyle is where you go into a terrain park or somewhere (lol) and do freestyle "tricks"and grabs such as "mutes" ..

As far as I know boning a trick is basically a tweak to it as far as extending your legs or whatever to essentially make it a harder trick that also looks better to experienced riders?

I won't lie to you, I know what they mean, but didn't realize explaining them would be so hard.

Bone, or boning out a leg, is when you (usually) grab the board and stick out one leg for style. Kinda like a ninja kick and locking your knee. You see it most often in nose or tail grabs, but anytime you see a riders leg stick out like that, it is a "bone".

Edit: some of us use the term "boneless" meaning riding with only one foot in the bindings and the other foot free. Call it a "one footer" or whatever, but my buddy and I have always called it boneless.

* Freeriding: This style entails riding almost any terrain, but spending most of the time on the ground rather than in the air. If you're a first-timer, this is your style.

* Freestyle: This involves lots of tricks, spins and time spent in the snowboard park. Usually, the boards associated with freestyling have twin tips (that is, identical nose and tail shapes) for riding forward and backward. Freestylers also spend a lot of time in the air. This is an advanced "trick" style, for which you'll need a trick board.

* Alpine/freecarving/racing: Unlike the other styles, alpine riding is concerned with going very fast; to this end, alpine boards are much narrower and longer than other types, and use a hard boot and binding system (like skis).

thought this would be helpful to you.

When you "Bonk" something its basically just means you tapped it with your board. For Example you Ollie beside a trash can then like shifty beside it so your board hits it.

A shifty is an air trick where you spin 90 degrees then spin the opposite way 90 reverse so you come back to the same position
