Since most people on here are concerned with how to be little hoodrats, including myself, it is time that I propose we push skiing in a new direction and reconsider what we label as "urban." Urban has many connotations, like urban mountain, urban freeclimbing, and urban freestyle walking, which as far as I'm concerned, all sound pretty nancy pants. Therefore, to eliminate this not-so-street lingo, I propose we now label "urban skiing" as simply "street." Think about it, when skateboarders and bmx riders go shred the city landscape, they all refer to it as street. I wouldn't roll up to my bmx buddies and ask them if they wanted to hit urban, because certainly I would be laughed at. So Newschoolers, if you really want some street cred stop saying urban and start saying street.
There's a reason that skaters and BMXers don't call "street" as "urban". It's because skiing is usually done on the mountains, nowhere near the urban environment, whereas skaters and BMXers are always in parks in urban areas. And "street skiing" sounds kinda like a slopestyle course just running down the side of a road.
fakie ollie looks like a nollie, switch ollie looks like an ollie. in skating switch and fakie have to do with your foot position on the board, and in snowboarding it has to do with how you work the board. and there is not way to spin "cab" in skiing.
