ExtremeCarving happens when the push-pull technique is pushed to the limit on steeper, hard, groomed runs. In this case, the push-pull technique naturally results in Totally Laid, Linked Turns™, a style that consists of three stages:
- Entering the turn:
To exit the previous turn, you perform a cross-under movement by bending your legs to Pull the board up to you.
During the transition, it's important to keep your body low to make it easy to lay down during the first part of the turn - but don't break at the waist.
- First half:
Push the board away from you quickly by straightening your knees to 90% of full extension - You still need some flex in your knees to handle less than perfect snow. The push must begin when the board is perpendicular to the fall line, and continue until the apex of the turn, when the board is pointing straight down the fall line.
While pushing, inclinate your body to the inside of the turn to naturally control the speed of the board. This movement is exactly like falling back onto a bed. Do not "sit down" - instead, let yourself "fall down." This movement is a leap of faith, because you are pushing away from the board while it is perpendicular to the fall line and nearly vertical - you must trust your board to come around.
By using just the right combination of inclination, push extension, and rotation, the apex of the turn is when your hands will naturally touch the snow
- Second half: Just as the board points down the fall line, Pull the board toward you by bending your knees to start the cross-under transition.
The ExtremeCarving technique is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma, because you can't understand it or analyze how it works until you can actually do it, and this paradox means that you will encounter a steep learning curve on your way to achieving Totally Laid, Linked Turns™.
