Really? You were in LA County and have the nerve to talk shit about mind field? I worked at a skateshop and somehow got a copy of that video for free, watched it once, and then decided I would never have the desire to watch it again and threw it out.

LA county > Mindfield

Actually, a lot of people would say that there is no such thing as that trick either. I call them nollie frontside heelflips, but don't really care if you say it the other way. But technically, your nomenclature is wrong.

he was saying that theres only one type of cab and its only done fakie, be it 180(half cab) or 360(full cab or caballerial).

when its done nollie, its a FS nollie heel or a nollie FS heel depending on where you like putting in the FS.

so technically a nollie cab doesn't exist.  i would call it a switch cab before calling it a nollie cab but i'm weird.

so some guy who i've never heard of had a part in a video i've never seen, but he's the authority on the skate industry, not the extremely successful company owner, or the living legend skateboarder.

friend, i say this with love and respect, go die in a fire
agreed.

hahaha, i love this argument..I too, have always been one to say that the word CAB/CABALLERIAL implies the word FAKIE.  therefore, there is no such thing as nollie cab, 1/2 cab or whatever...i understand what people are talking about when they say it, but to me (and like I said, to each their own), it's a nollie f/s or b/s 180, nollie f/s heel...prime example would be nollie b/s flip...it's NOT called a nollie b/s 1/2 cab flip, is it??  but you do call a fakie one a f/s 1/2 cab flip (as opposed to a regular 1/2 cab flip)...

i think i just shorted out my own brain....but yea..

this how i say it: (it is not the industry way to say thigns by any means i just think it makes the most sense cause then there is NO QUESTION as to what you are talking about.)

nollie half cab heelflip,
nollie bs heelflip

nollie cab heelflip
nollie 360 heelflip

half cab heel
fakie bs heelflip (no one else calls it that but it makes more sense. it fits with nollie bs heelflip)

and everyone will know what you are talking about. if someone says nollie half cab you obviously know what they are talking about. if you say nollie bs 180 everyone will know what you are talking about. its FAKIE that fucks with everything. everyone will call the fs verson a half cab, but then the bs version people always throw out the fucking strangest shit. they say "Frontside Halfcab Heel" or "fakie fs heel". but a halfcab IS FRONTSIDE (isnt it?).

i think this makes the most sense - when you are doing a 180 and you are going blind side that should be a backside 180, no matter which stance. i have actually been saying "fakie blindside heel" lately because that is even more precise. no one should be confused as to what you are talking about. if you dont say half cab in the name you should basically assume its the other way. its just so much easier.

i know im wrong im just saying my way would make it easier.

Fakie b/s heelflip is not the proper way to describe a f/s half cab heel.

its weird when i hear people throw the 180 in there when they're talking about a trick.  
nobody says fs 180 kickflip, people say frontside flip or a frontside heel, backside flip or backside heel.  
so why throw the 180 in there when its done nollie?  why not just say FS nollie heel?

i don't say the number unless someones doing a 360 even then i just say the "3" and drop the "side" like,
he did a "front 3 down" the double set yo!
he did a "back 3 nollie flip" to manual kid, it was sick!
 

maybe i'm just weird but one things for certain, trick names are way too long these days.



and yes its always funny when people talk about fakie, so many people get it wrong.  but the real pisser is when i bust out my buttery ass switch nollies, then nobody can step to me!

The one you are talking about is actually backside, whatever it would be forward, it is fakie, so doing a frontside heel while rolling fakie is a frontside half cab heel.

WOW, really? I've thought for years that gay twists were frontside. I've heard the term "lez twist" thrown around in the same context but thought it was a joke... any input on that one?

the gipper is right, whatever it is going forward, it is going fakie. but you substitute BACKSIDE for HALF CAB. and if youre doing a frontside turn its FRONTSIDE HALF CAB.  thats that.
