Skateboarding terminology is not rocket science. It's pretty easy really. But over the years many of our basic trick names are becoming diluted.
Like the English language, it's important to adhere to the basic origins of tricks and evolve them to their new level.
The building blocks of frontside and backside, nollie and fakie and switch are becoming very blurry of late.
So here's a little breakdown of what a trick actually is and how to say them.
Frontside Nollie Flip
This is not a nollie frontside flip - There's no such trick unless you can do a nollie, then shift your feet and do a frontside flip.
Backside Nollie Flip
Frontside 360 Nollie or Switch Cab
This is not a nollie cab. Think about it. A nollie is rolling forwards and a Cab by its very nature is rolling backwards. Therefore it's a switch cab or a frontside 360 nollie. There really isn't a trick called a nollie cab. However if you can do that, please post one in here.
Frontside Heelflip Shuv it - Kick Flip Shuv it.
It's not a varial shuv it or varial flip. Originally a Varial was a Frontside Air where the skater reached between the legs and grabbed the board on the heel edge with the back hand (now known as a Roastbeef grab), then turned the board 180 degrees frontside with the hand before putting it back on the feet and landing. A varial is grabbed.
Rock to Fakie
It's not a fakie rock - You come out fakie.
