Invite me to AU. Never been there. I had a "snowboard nightmare" last night.
Embrace the snow.
(goofing around in softies, strap bindings on a split tail powder board, an eccentric waste of time.)
+1 on setting down the landing gear early.\
I have to lead my body quite a bit because the board center is weird ....the split tail has almost no tail relative to nose.
I'm not sure I would call this style of carving carving so much as a Snow sliding technique... longboarders do a lot of traction breaking slides to control speed- and I am wearing slide gear for the snow. The carve is actually slightly broken and my turn radius is modulated radically throughout the turn. In the fall line my turn radius might approach 30 meters...at the finish its about 10M.
