Cabs and Rodeos explained
 
Hey guys

So could anyone explain what a "cab" is? Like what is meant when someone says "cab 540" or "cabbing in"? Also what exactly is a rodeo? It looks like a backflip to me. What is the difference?

Cheers!

Cab is doing a trick while switch. A rodeo is a backflip with a BS180? in it.

I could be wrong though, im sure Ill get corrected if I am :P

Cab is any switch frontside spin, just a shorthand way to say it.

Rodeo I believe you are correct on, but I don't think it necessarily has to be BS180, could be FS also. Basically an inverted spin.

Ok so a cab is doing any trick switch so say I did a backside 360 regular instead of goofy which would be switch for me that would be a cab 3? Does it matter if its frontside or backside?

Still confused on the rodeo..isn't a inverted spin a cork?

Switch frontside is cab. Switch backside is just switch backside.

You're right, I was thinking of cork for some reason. Guess rodeo would be a flip with a bs180.

Cab being fs only is kinda dumb but whatever, it sounds right

As far as I understand, it came from the Caballerial in skateboarding. So I think back in the 80s they were calling a switch front 360 a Caballerial in snowboarding, eventually it seems to have be shortened to just Cab + your spin. Cab 540, Half Cab(180), etc.

Right on with the cab...

I believe a rodeo is incorporating a spin, whether it's a frontside or backside, with a barrel roll in the same direction as the spin.

Aerials are always confusing...wildcats, corks, rodeos.

Cab is actually a FAKIE BACKSIDE 360. But since snowboarders mostly pop their tricks (off pipe and jumps), a cab becomes simply a fs 360 switch. Half cab is 180. And anything more than 360 just gets called by the rotation angle.....

To make more sense:
Fakie = going switch and doing an ollie off your front leg
Switch = going switch and doing an ollie off your trailing leg

but snowboarders pop with both legs, so that gets thrown off....

And a cab taco is ending up draped over a feature facing up. :D
