Technique for riding TBT board

So, got myself a new 2013 Bataleon Goliath and I love it!

Having come from a second hand circa '05 Burton Dominant (Reg. Camber I belive) has got me thinking if I need to adjust my technique slightly to get the most from the Bataleons TBT?
I'd say i'm an intermediate rider, really trying to dial in my dynamic riding and concentrate on that seperation.

Thanks all.

move the board under your body instead of moving your body over your board

The TBT raises the contact points which makes the board quicker edge to edge, but you usually have to ride a higher edge angle to maintain hold. This translates into being more dynamic in general with your carves compared to a camber board.
