Swoard ECS 2015 - 12th session: Feedback, pictures, etc.

Postby Swoard team » Monday 2 February 2015, 19:02

Please, use THIS subject and only THIS one to give your feedback about the Swoard ECS 2015, so the readers do not have to open many subjects... Thanks!
------------------------------------------------------

The hardcore extremecarvers and new faces have joined this nice Session! :D Some of the newcomers travelled from Quebec and we were glad to ride with them on our slopes in the Alps.
The number of participants was surprisingly high (about 130-140) considering the exchange rate of Swiss currency into Euro (+20% recently) or into ruble (+100%), and the bad weather forecast. Saturday was finally sunny! With the fresh powder, the conditions were more ideal for freeriding and the DUAL model. However, we managed to perform not too bad EC turns in difficult conditions, as this can be seen in the pictures and the film below. The level of the riders and the board performances have improved a lot during the last years: these are some goals of Swoard and our Sessions. 8)

On Saturday dinner, we could watch the preview of the movie "The Cut" and tell some stories about the shooting, made in only one day. Final version will be available over Internet very soon in March 2015.
We also showed the total new bindings developed by Swoard: announcement (in the Forum) and availability from 9th March. This is the result of 3 years of work and development in secret. We are very excited by their performances and can't wait for your feedbacks. :D

Here is the group photo on Saturday:

:arrow: PHOTOS

    Our official photographer Lionel Fellay has shot some beautiful pictures on Saturday despite the very soft snow, like the ones you can see below.
    :arrow: More pictures are available in the Facebook album of the event.
    There are however few images because of bad weather on Sunday and Monday morning... And the snow conditions were really difficult for all participants. More important was to not injury oneself. Be a hero at next session on hard packed snow! ;-)
:arrow: FILM

    Pierre, the usual cameraman, has tried to keep the best turns in the following film. We place a selection of cool falls too. ;-) The snow was perfect for submarines!

    :arrow: The dates of the Swoard ECS 2016 are already known! The 13th ExtremeCarving Session will take place from Jan 30th to Feb 1st, 2016 ! :D 8)
    :arrow: Participate in the 2nd Swoard Film Contest". Use your recent footage or shoot more with one or several Extremecarver (or DUAL) in action, for editing a good film. We decided to leave enough time for filming and cutting your video. The deadline for participation is 14th January 2017, so you have two seasons! There are 3 boards to win, and the Awards will be given during the 14th ExtremeCarving Session in January 2017.
See you soon and again in the mountains! :silly:

The thread is opened now, but still under construction.

More pictures will be published over Internet. Special thanks to the photograph Lionel Fellay who replaced Jean-Manuel and made great pictures. :clap3:
The final film will be available as soon as possible. Pierre is working on it. :bravo:

Sorry for the delay, but the snow conditions are awesome right now and we left the work for the days without sun. ;-)

There are links to pictures and the film, which were already available on the social networks.

Note the dates of the 13th ExtremeCarving Sesion, and the info about the 2nd Swoard Film Contest. 8)
