"So, you want to get into snowboarding, but you donât know the âlingoâ so that you can keep up with all of your friends. Well, here is a list of terms that you will want to know so that you too can talk snowboarding. â¢ Backside: the side of the skateboard where your heels are. When referring to the backside, it means to the back of the snowboarder, as in having to look over your shoulder. â¢ Baseless Bindings: Your feet will actually be set the snowboard; there are no metal base plates to set your feet on. â¢ Blindside: Basically the backside. The side of the snowboarder that is âblindâ to them. Again, having to look over your shoulder. â¢ Bonk: This is where you hit an object with your snowboard as in bumping it and then continuing on with the course. â¢ Boost: Catching air with a jump. â¢ Bust: Slang for âto doâ as in, âcheck him out, busting out this trick.â â¢ Camber: The space, when the snowboard is lying flat on the surface, that is located between the ground and the front and back parts of the snowboard. â¢ Cant: the angle at which your feet are pointing. It could be either duck footed or pigeon toed. This determines how your knees will be bent. â¢ Chatter: The vibration of the snowboard when riding, usually resulting from high speeds, tight turns or icy conditions."
