If you are really overpowered (like in 30-50kts)
- you can either lay down the sail during the flip (not everyones taste) to spill power or
- you can oversheet hard and fast slicing the wind taking the wind completely out of your sail (again, not everyones taste) to spill power
but if overpowered you have to spill it someway and you have to spill it fast and decisive.
