------------------------------

We are very excited to announce here the dates of the "Swoard Demo Tour 2017". :D This "Tour" includes of course the main event "ExtremeCarving Session (ECS)" (14th edition) and four other smaller meetings (in resorts we have "certified for EC"). "Demo" does not only mean that the participants can test Swoard boards, but also that they can watch demonstrations of extremecarving by the Swoard team (the founders and Swoard instructors).


Free lessons or advices are given to explain the ride technique we have developed from 1995 to 2001. This technique, easily identifiable, is especially adapted to the width and other specificities of the SWOARD Extremecarver, the snowboard that inspired extremecarving. The words "rotation", "push-pull", "fluidity" and "gesture purity" will be part of your vocabulary. Advices on the settings of bindings and boots are also provided to fully benefit from all the advantages of the SWOARD snowboards.

At least 2-3 Swoard instructors will be present at each event. The Swoard team will be complete with 6 instructors during the main event "ExtremeCarving Session" in Zinal.

The model SWOARD Dual will also be available. Therefore the riders in soft boots are welcome!

The third model, SWOARD Extremecarver Pro, is made in limited series by hand (in 3 sizes and 5 flexes): thus only few demo boards are available. It is presented at the stand with the new SWOARD Redline bindings, which are awesome on the snow! They are sold on demand.

------------------------------
:arrow: Participate in the "2nd Swoard Film Contest". Shoot some good sequences during two seasons, with one or several Extremecarver (or DUAL) in action, for editing a nice film before the 12th of January 2018. The films of the winners will be screened during the Saturday dinner of the Swoard ECS 2018 in Zinal. There are 3 boards to win :!:

The Swoard team


Personal thanks:

Big thanks to all the people who are now also part of the Swoard team: :pray2:
- the Swoard EC instructors: Arnaud, Alex, Frabass, Anthony, Julien, Sébastien, Petr and Abrax
- the staff in organization: Arnaud, Alex, François (= Le Fanfoué), Sébastien and Petr
- the staff in backstage: Joël, Tali, Jörg, Francesco and the Forum moderators
- the numerous volunteers helping us in the stands: Christophe, Etienne, Eric and more (they will be listed after the ECS).
Without your help and passion, those events would not be possible since 14 years. We believe that this is contributing to make alpine snowboarding more visible in Europe and in the world, what is good for the future of our sport.
