If you are looking to do a freestyle move, unweighting the tail and pivoting off your nose is fun. If you are trying to negotiate a steep slope with the greatest control over your decent....it's probably not the most efficient option.
Thanks for the reply. I leaned it one time a few years ago and never use it until I saw it again so I thought maybe there is a name for this.

I should have more detail for my description. The tail pivots no more than 90 degree and I don't think it needs to involve upper body rotation, maybe more of an up and down movement, similar to hop but just on the tail.

Grizz What woud you gain by having the tail unweighted? What would you loose?

hellside It is not a nose roll. It is used on steep. The tail is picked up in the air to change direction quickly. It is not a hop turn either because the nose stay in contact with the slop.
