    Endo – You’re on your back, and the wheels are between you and the sky. Or something like that.

    Guinea pig/guinea pigging – being the first person to hit a feature (jump, drop, etc) as seen here

    Going to bump this with the term “roller” since Jim asked about it.

    Roller: A trail feature, generally sculpted out of dirt, that riders can simply roll over without having to lift the front or rear end of the bike off the ground.
