Sadly, they think it is good riding, when in reality it is poor form...but it does work. Use of torsional flex in dynamic skidded turns is very effective and makes the entire turn easier and stronger.
I don't kick the tail around, I'd say I've done the dynamic skidded turns without flexing the board but then again when I'm riding I don't really think about my legs at all.
