I also ride wakeboards in the summer time and I could never understand why some of the terminology is so different...
what I'm talking about is doing spins switch. in most sports (and in wakeboarding), whenever you start switch and land regular, it is called a cab-spin. But this is not the case for skiing.
for example, in wakeboarding, a switch 180 would be called a half cab. a switch 360 would still just be called a switch 3. a switch 540 would be called a cab 5. a switch 720 would still be a switch 7. a switch 900 would be a cab 9.
But in skiing, it seems everything is just called switch and not cab. Why is this? And is it wrong to call it cab?
