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.

I look up nose roll in various places and they all look like this that spin the tail 180 degree.

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.|
