Whips around = you are carving a very long arc in the beginning of the turn, but once you center your weight over the middle of the board, the very tight sidecut in the middle of te board takes over and the board starts trying to make a much tighter turn than it was previously.

Hooking means catching the edge, on some models where there is a tight sidecut towards the tip and tail, you can be spinning or jumping (or both ) and all of the sudden the board starts to turn sharply during landing, this can be undesirable. Nitro gave this board a very mellow sidecut at the ends in order to avoid this
