I've never heard any movement described in terms of "above the fall line." What on earth could that possibly mean?
and to what I think the OP is asking...It's frequently used in terms of edge engagement. Such as.... is all of the new edge engaged after, in or above the fall line.
A low level rider will tend to pivot the board through most of the turn and really engage the edge after the fall line.
A higher level rider will engage the edge in the fall line.
A high level rider can engage the new edge early in the turn "above" (or before if you wish) the fall line. A pure carved turn would be an example. Your pics from bomber show someone engaging their new edge "above the fall line".
