Swoard ECS 2017 - 14th session: Feedback, pictures, etc.

Postby Swoard team » Monday 30 January 2017, 18:18

Please post your feedback in this thread below and do not create new subject.
Your words and your support give motivation to the organizer and all the volunteers. Thanks!
------------------------------------------------------

It has been an excellent Session again with great EC and blue sky on Saturday and Sunday. 8) The lack of snow in the Alps has not really been a problem there. The ambiance was particularly nice and friendly this year. The dinner on Saturday in Sorebois (at 2440 m) had a spirit "back to the roots"! Indeed this is the place we had chosen for the 4 first Sessions. Thus we took the gondola in the night. :D

The meeting has also been the opportunity to show and make test the very first boards of the 3 new models! Fantastic feedbacks from everybody!! Please do not write us, the new boards will be ready online for the public soon and progressively. ;-)
Thanks to all participants and the staff! 8) :chinese:

Here is the group photo on Saturday:

Personal thanks from Patrice, the organizer:
Warm thanks to all the people who helped Swoard before and during the three days. :bravo: Without them, this event would not exist. :pray2:
Not in alphabetical order: Julien, Christian (the 2nd photographer), Laurent, Tali, Rafal, Joël, Etienne, Arnaud, Anthony, Petr, François, José, Valérie, Mallorie, Julien D. (the cameraman and film editor), Lionel (the photographer) and all the other people who helped.

:arrow: PHOTOS

    Our official photographer Lionel Fellay has shot great pictures like some of the ones you can see below.
    Discover his talent on Flickr here.
    Christian Villard was the 2nd photographer. Some of his best pictures are below too.

    :arrow: Best pictures are available in the Facebook album of the event.

    If you want to get the original pictures of yourself, you can write to ECS2017@swoard.com and give a description of your snowboard clothes. Joining a photo or showing who you are in the group photo is better. Then please be patient. We will try to send your pictures before the end of the season. ;-) At the moment we are very busy.
:arrow: FILM

    The cameraman Julien D. has filmed and edited a movie which was screened on Saturday dinner.
    :arrow: Film on YouTube channel.
:arrow: FUTURE

    :arrow: Next year we will celebrate the 15 YEARS ANNIVERSARY, so schedule the date now: from Jan 27th to 29th, 2018. :D

    :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. The deadline for participation is 12th January 2018 ! There are 3 boards to win.
    A good idea may be enough :!:
    No need to be an excellent rider, because the idea of an original script can be awarded!
    And if there are many participants, we will add a 4th Award: the Special Award of the Jury.

    :arrow: Don't miss our next event of the Swoard Demo Tour, in Northern Italy, 11-12 March 2017.

See you soon! :silly:

:D :bravo:
Your really progressed in smoothness and timing, Matti!

Thank you for this nice sequence. You make us already miss these great days. The session is too short: it should be 30 days and not 3! ;-) :D

Yeah!! :clap3:
Pictures from Lionel are amazingly sharp (shot in very high speed), while photos from Christian suggest more the speed. :bravo:

The film is very cool, and I like the "interviews" with Elias and Matti. ;-)
I still have a small preference for the film of the 13th ExtremeCarving Session.

My first ever Swoard event, and it was a pleasure to meet you all. While my 2.5yr old son was getting his first ski lesson, 'Daddy' was also getting lessons from the very patient Arnaud!

I just wish, I could recognise you all from dinner, to the pistes in your ski clothes!

Many thanks to Julia, for the English translations (although Arnaud's English is good, I have no problem at all with it, one day maybe my French/German will be at the same level!).

Hope to see you next year, and maybe have a lay-down worthy of the video.

cheers,
Slayer.

ps. managed to lose the ankle screw and circular plastic from one of my UPZ RC10 boots, guess I was wiping out far too much! It was probably on Monday, when I was doing Barthélémy in 1m visibility. Looks so much nicer in the video!
