No tips, just keep riding and having fun.

I'll be flying into Denver next February for a weekend, maybe I'll see you around.

Immediately start trying insane tricks. The more you crash, the better you'll get. :D J/K Take you time, watch some videos and for the love of god make sure your having fun. That is the most important part of the sport.

well, actually a cab can be done either f/s of b/s. The origional (done by Steve Caballero, hence the name) was fakie b/s 360 ollie on 1/2 pipe. The f/s version wasn't done until years later.
