If you really want to get nerdy about it a nollie frontside 360 is callled a gazelle and a nollie backside 360 is called a hellipop. Thats what they were named when Rodney first started doing them.

I think the word caballerial should only be for fakie and for nollie tricks just called it 180, 360 or whatever.

Wrongo. A gazelle is a nollie bs 360 with an extra shuvit. Most people call them nollie biggerspins now

No, because 'gazelle' just sound so infinitely gay. On par with "dolphin flip". Trick names were cooler when they were given by hard living party guys in the 70s, and not skinny kids who film all their stuff in their parent's garage.

No it's a nollie frontside 360 which is why back in the early 90's when people were doing those weird 360 pivots out of noseslides and crooked grinds they were calling it "gazelle out".

Probably the reason why the name was dropped.
