Question What is the name of the turn?

What is the name of a kind of turn where you pick up your tail and pivot to change direction in quick succession. I think this is usually used in steep. A friend taught me this several years ago but I never use them until I saw it again about 3 weeks ago.

A nose roll?

You paid for a whole board, you should get your moneys worth and use all of it.

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.

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

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.
