never understood that snapping description.
Al low strokerates everything moves rather slow. How can a hip suddenly snap in a smooth slow kinetic chain?

"Set up & Drive"
You arrive at peak recovery and "fire" (snap)
you get a real punch / superglide from it (power of the arm throw driven by snapping of the hip)

shelia taormina uses this style

i'll post vids

Watch sheila's hip drive to entry incorporating arm throw, this gives a huge surge / glide if done right, really maintains speed.

To pull it off you have to stay up on the oposite edge and snap / throw when you chamber recovery above the head

Add the power if the throw of the hand (to the shoulders hips and kick)

The "snap" is snapping from edge to edge minimising the transition (drag)

so although the stroke rate is slow the speed is pretty fast

maximised by the arm throw shoulder hip snap & kick (make your skate edge line with a 2bk)

You need big air under your recovery arm to pull it off

Sheila mentions it in her video a'la loading the core in a lengthened serape plane
