I need a list of words that are specific to a subculture for an assignment, figured this might make a good thread... so feel free to list below; if it's obscure or you just invented it three seconds ago please provide a definition.

Roach, roast, snake, psyched. Those all can be found in my day to day vocabulary. I'm trying to eliminate the term Bro' and anything that may sound like it came from surfing. Not that I have a problem with surfing, it's just that I don't surf.

Box Jump: Jump used in street competitions consisting of two ramps on either side of an approximately 10-foot deck.

Burly: A big trick. When a rider goes for something big. ex: John jumped a 20-foot canyon -- now that was burly.

Canyon: The sunken area between ramps in dirt, and the empty space between two ramps in street. The big danger in dirt and street is when a rider may not go far enough, or may have trouble with a maneuver and doesn't make the second ramp, landing in the canyon.

Chillin': Really cool. ex: What's up with your hair? Yo, it's chillin'. (i.e., it looks like this because it's supposed to and it's cool this way).

Cooking Fish Sticks: Something easy. ex: Table Tops are like cooking fish sticks.

Coping: The tubular steel strip along the edge of the vert ramp. Riders catch their pegs on the coping in order to stall, or do grinds across it.

Crazy Hat: A rider who goes for a burly trick without thinking.

Curbed: When a rider has crashed hard; or when you're drunk; or how you feel after a hard day of work; or when a girl shoots you down.

Dialed: When a rider is pulling all of his tricks. ex: John pulled all of his tricks in his first run -- now that is dialed.

Dirt: An event whose main distinction from vert (besides material) is that in vert the rider returns to the ramp he launched from, whereas in dirt the rider launches off one ramp and lands on another. The basic goal is to ride as fast as possible toward the initial ramp, take off as high as possible, then land cleanly on the second ramp. Competitors are often as high as 11' to 14' off the ground as they perform their maneuvers.

Fun Box: A four-sided box jump (ramp on every side) that is included in street courses.

Hot Dog: A thrill seeker or daredevil.

Lame: When a rider crashes really hard.

Loopy: After a rider crashes really hard and he's a bit dazed.

McCoy: Doing whatever it takes in order to pull a trick. From veteran rider Dennis McCoy.

Pack o'Newports: Something harsh or rough. ex: The vert ramp at the X Games was like a pack o'Newports.

Pullin' a McCoy: When a rider runs into the crowd. From an unfortunate tendency exhibited by rider Dennis McCoy.

Quarter Pipe: Used in street competitions. The quarter pipe is like a single wall of a vert ramp (or half-pipe). Called a quarter pipe because it is one-quarter of a full radius.

Shady: Someone down with the scene

Stick: When a rider goes for a trick and it looks like he can't pull it off, but somehow he lands it.

Street: When a rider goes off something and lands directly onto flat ground. ex: landing in the flat area in vert instead of on the sloping transition.

Street: An event consisting of different types and styles of ramps positioned so that they can be approached in many different ways. Competitors plan out their runs through these ramps according to individual style, combining different tricks and ramps to create the most impressive runs possible. There are two categories of tricks in street: aerials and lip tricks.

Super Street: When a rider breaks his bike on a landing, but still tries a trick anyway.

Sub Box: Street course jump consisting of two ramps, one on either side of a platform that is topped by an approximately 3-foot high box, with an approximately 2-foot deck on top. The height of the box, together with it's small surface make it easy for a rider to clip a back wheel. Using this jump usually entails a fairly high degree of difficulty. Probably only bike riders will use this jump. For that reason, skateboarders and in-line skaters refer to it as the BMX Box.

Tripping: A person being sketchy.

Tu Pac: A difficult set of hills. ex: The Dirt Tu Pac at the X Games was insane.

Tweaked: When a rider is all contorted doing a trick; or when the rider himself is being all weird.

Vert: The half-pipe event. A half-pipe is like a big "U" with two transition areas at either end that extend to vertical stands, separated by the flat bottom in between. The half-pipe is entered from a platform which allows the rider to gain speed before leaving the other side. The smoother the rider, the higher he will be able to go. Riders have to be careful not to land on the lower part of the transition or the flat bottom or they will probably crash. There are two categories of tricks in vert: aerials and lip tricks.

fufanu?
abubaca?
un-eighty [same as indian giver]
cooke-ing a landing [putting a foot down but still riding away like you pulled it; see-last woodward cfb]

jib comes from snowboarding.

find all the issues of tread, they had nice little slang boxes in each issue,
"pancakes"= perfectly flat tabletops.
"box of pornos"= i think was in reference to a persons style the first time through a line at the trails [brian foster has a u-haul truck sized box-o-pornos.
pack of newports was in there as well/

i look for them...

The eighties term "cafe racer" would be appropriately employed in the description of most cock sauce 25lb. skatepark bikes kids are sporting these days.
