Interesting. I always assumed that the most tight turns (like the stuff Greg from BRM demonstrates) uses pitch to make the turns. He appears to roll the board into the turn but then his weight shifts back to use the pitch axis to fly the wings all the way around (kind of like that mtb on a bern / wall of death idea).

I realise its gone all theoretical and everyone is probably describing the same thing depending on how they experience the sensations during a turn.
