well cab is a spin combo thingy in boarding(not sure how it works it has something to do with frontside backside or w/e) but in skiing cab=switch... a daffy is wen u kick one ski up and the other back at the same time, then make the ski thats back go forward and the ski thats forward go backword.. wow hard to explain... easier just to search for daffy in the video section and see for yourself lol
Cab is short for Cabilarial, an old skateboarder. He named a Switch Frontside 360 on his skateboard his last name, calling it "the Cabilarial". Okay so from there the word mutated into Half-Cab, meaning a Switch Frontside 180. Finally it became a term to denote any Switch Frontside spin, I.E. Cab-3, Cab-5, Cab-7...you get the idea. Snowboarders poached the term from skating, and skiiers in turn poached it from snowboarding. Finally the term (in a skiing context) means to spin from a switch position.
also, the guy who said theres a big difference between fakie and switch prob wan't being sarcastic. see pep fujas' article in skeeze. personally, i think fakie sounds stupid, so everyone should say switch or cab.
i cant take him[liam downey] seriously cuz his name reminds me of that downy bear from back when i was a kid -d loc
I don't deny there are bad things in the US right now, hell, 51% of the country to be exact. But god damnit, our country being fat is NOT a problem. I do't give a shit how fat people are. hell, fat kids are harder to kidnap, that means our country is safer.
