That's be pretty difficult in comparison. Throwing backside of the heels would be really tough and awkward whereas the frontside 1's off the toes feel pretty natural.

This is the type of snowboarding video that I like to watch! No stupid fast cuts or distracting effects. Clear view of what the guy's doing. And the occasional bail just to show that even the pros lose it sometimes.

I've added this one to my training faves.

This is from memory, someone correct me if wrong, also notice in the vid, where he starts his carve after he ends it, it's off to the side and not clearly on the downhill edge, that is why it looks so "rounded out" compared to if you tried to dolphin turn and engage the downhill edge, where it might seem you are traversing "forever"

I spent some time last season trying to recreate this turn. I think it looks REALLY freakin cool, and I think you hit the nail on the head with "is it the pressure/edge control you learn from being able to do this which is more useful?"

My analysis of the turn - I think that the CASI rider is demonstrating a flexion/extension drill. The drill intent is for independent flexion/extension combined with fore/aft movements. The turns are carved (notice the pencil lines in the video). The rider is air born in the transition edge to edge. At the exit of the turn the rider is popping off the tail of the board shifting weight back while flexing the front knee and extending the back knee. While airborne the rider extends the front knee flexes the back knee and shifts his weight forward. If you watch the video slowly the rider pops off the tail of the board and lands on the nose on the new edge. I spent a decent amount of time working on this turn last season in the manor I just described, and I think that it helped improve my dynamic riding

That's really good video showing the advantages of down-unweighting for all kinds of turn styles.

However, it's also an excellent example of why I avoid using terms/jargon like "down-unweighting" because, as shown in that video, unless you are doing it slowly(where the move really loses it's effectiveness), nothing actually moves down. The rapid contraction of the legs releases edge pressure so fast, that if anything the board comes off the snow and that "pop" causes the riders hips to go up slightly.
