whats the differnce with a cab,switch and fakie?
k hwats the differnce betwine cab switch and fakie there like all the same
i have found a way to not hurt my self and that is not to fall
you can call it a cab when itsa a big jump. you can say switch when your riding it into something and fake when you come out of something like a fakie of a rail-. i thinks thats about it!
some dudes think switch=unnatural, but well, i guess i don't have to say how it REALLY is :D
skateboard wise, switch is when you do the trick 'the other way'. if you kickflip regular, a switch flip is a goofy kickflip. pretty much it means the unnatural way. fakie is a trick done going backwards. so if you kickflip regular, you'll be riding goofy but ollie-ing off your nose; the kickflip is done as if you were regular but you travelling backwards on your skate facing goofy. cab refers to steve cabelleros patented move, the fakie frontside 360. cab has now gone on to mean any fakie frontside spin. so you do a fakie ollie (riding goofy, but ollie regular off your nose) and the front of your body spins turns forward to the direction you are travelling.

Being out there skiing every day, good or bad, just playing around with friends, with no contests or filming- that is the real spirit of skiing for me. that is why i started skiing, and if i lose those moments that is what will make me stop skiing.
I think gangster_jibbers got it right, they all mean the same thing but certain ones work better for some things.
basicly the same
yeah, same thing as saying a change-up or a switch-up, or saying backside 270 or blindside 270. its all the same
I skι therefore I aм
ye guy it all depends on the context its used in.
so nice that its nasty,
so bangin its bustin,
so sweet that its sick,
so dope its disgustin.
This is all coming from the skatboarding side of me.
Cab:a switch frontside or backside 360.
Switch:riding backwards down, up, or off somthing.
fakie:when you land switch, but don't have to. ex.railslide to fakie.
Also a switch 540 or a switch 900 can be called a cab 5 or a cab 9.
Kitting is so progressional.
ok this is the last time I reply to a 'cab' post.. Cab is a switch frontside 360.. switch and fakie both mean being backwards.
