Default sail action on the bottom turn

Watching Kevin do bottom turns, they begin with a brief but extreme backward rake of the rig, oversheeting, then transition quickly to a laydown pushing the mast forward, then finally some tail action to point the board at the wave.

What is the purpose of the initial backward rake and oversheet? Why not just bank into the turn, sheet in and lay the rig down?
