+1 this is actually how I learned to tail press. I found that when I was first starting out straight flat groomed runs got me too. So what I found is that applying or shifting your weight back helps a lot then just control speed with what has already mentioned mico carving or long drawn out carves so your on edge longer. what really fun is when you have a long flat transfer section that is littered with ppl that are slow or even stopped in the middle of the run and your bobbing and weaving them. I typically like to ice those sitting in the middle of the run usually followed up with a choice finger.
