How ironic it is... In my quest to learn how to extreme-carve with an alpine stick and hardboots, I wind up coming across quite possibly the most in-depth video tutorials I've ever seen on ROTATION, PUSH-PULL and EC being demonstrated by riders using freeride boards and softboots!!!
After I saw these videos, I slipped into my softboots, ratcheted myself onto my Burton T6 and proceeded to rotate my hips and torso this way and that, bent my knees up and down, and inclinated back and forth, puttting in some pretty hardcore training... All the while blazing by at 0/kmh on the carpet in the house at about 70Fahrenheit! My housemates just looked at me and shook their heads, thinking I had just lost my mind
Hello! I haven't met you before on the forum, but I'm glad that you find these videos to be of significance. Like you, I also have these videos, along with the tutorial done by EvGen(BEN) and of course assorted videos of Jacques and Patrice
Greetings! Your good friend yomama(Peter Vu)
has corresponded with me on the forums, offering valuable tips, advice, and encouragement. He had also mentioned that you guys co-wrote the article on extreme-carving on the Carver's Almanac website
From what I've researched, you and Peter were among the earliest adopters of the extreme-carving technique and philosophy
Pardon my ignorance, but how do I go about changing the original name of this thread? Like you, I'm surprised that not many people have expressed interest in these little tutorials.
Cheers!!! Hopefully you'll have an opportunity to view these videos soon, they are pretty informative and actually fun to watch! Hopefully you're getting in some good practice in some "fridge", I will have to wait 8 months before I can try to implement these exercises
Once more, kudos to the Russians
EvGen(BEN), Evgeny Tikhmenev(REY), Hugo, Salomeya, to name a few... They are raising the EC game to new levels!!!
One day, a little Filipino called vizsyn hopes to one day reach the promised land...
Riding softboots since '96. Saw EXTREME OPUS 4 "LIFTED" in 2010... Back to Square 1
