I flatbase a lot. I do it on flat runouts so I maintain speed and I also do it sometimes on big groomers just to see how fast I can go and I quite enjoy the feeling.
Its definately not a technical move but it is a part of snowboarding that if you dont master you will get caught out sooner or later either with a scorpion or not making it through a flat runout because you washed off your speed by using an edge.
I also do it at the end of the day when Im physically spent and cbfd carving, I just want to ride powder stashes
