If it's like a skateboard no comply, he probably means a foot plant or fast plant.

Are you talking about bunny hopping? If so, all you do is pull the front up and then shift your weight back forward.

Yeah, I think that's a J-hop. As for the cradle, kangaroo perhaps? Except without the hopping? Anyway, I'm not much good at either so I'll refrain from giving advice.

See my post below and take a look at the link I posted. Practice w/o the curb or with but it is the same technique. Bookmark that site, there is a lot of good info there.
