    Uh oh, another freeride slang thread... Don't worry man, there are no dumb questions. I can't watch video, but I think you're describing a "Foo fa doo"

    Jib means to trick off something or just tricking, and huck is to jump off something. Everyone should have fun answering your question, and critiquing my answer.

    I always thought that to "jib" is to like hop from point to point on your back wheel while stalled using quick pedal strokes to get forward momentum. It's like a trials term.

    Urban dictionary says this: Jib: Verb. To jib. Jibbing. The act of manuvering a bicycle, skateboard, snowboard or skis in tricky manner on top of and around a structure such as a stump, rocks, stairs, railigs, rooftops, etc. When you are playing around, showing off, jumping, flipping, hopping, etc you are jibbing.

    Biker: Lets go jib on the steps at the library.

    Skier: We were jibbin' all over the terrain park saturday

    going up on your back wheel and coming back in backwards is an "a-boob-a-ka" coming to the top of a quarter and doing a 90 stalling on your back wheel is a "foof-a-new" but you have to do that on the coping or corner of the quarter if you do it on the top deck then its called a tire tap...

    I'd call it a rear wheel stall.

    He never mentioned the fact that you use your back brake in that vid. Silly professionals, they just want to make us screw up so they can take all the glory...horrumph

    The technique of using short "half strokes" with the pedals to get the bike to jump forward on the rear wheel is called a pedal kick. its really only about a 1/4 turn of the cranks, then a quick ratcheting back to the starting position while the bike is still in the air.
    I've always heard jib used as cliffy described, basically throwing a trick...
    To Huck is to launch or jump off something, often used to describe the move in a somewhat "go for it" balls move rather then a technical takeoff. That doesn't mean that a given huck can't be a technical/advanced/skilled move though, it's more like slang: " yeah, that dude just hucked off the garage roof like it was nothin' ".
