new video: EC fitness workout

Dear friends, for all those who are prevented from carving due to the pandemic, here is a short fitness workout to stay in shape for the time when we can hit the slopes again.

Re: Surf-skating similarities to EC?

@user: It's nice you agree, user. To close this topic, I'd like to quote Patrice's contribution from above: :clap: You got the point, Slayer. :D Our Swoard-EC technique is inspired from surfing (as we write it everywhere since day one), and also from skateboarding. This is related to the fact that t...

Re: Surf-skating similarities to EC?

Hi Iceripper, I know the video you posted, and I have tried some of the other pumping techniques shown in it. Personally, however, I prefer the rotational style, for two reasons: 1. In my opinion it is the most fluid and elegant. 2. It helps me improve my extremecarving skills - isn't this what we a...

Re: Surf-skating similarities to EC?

Here is a video of my first attempts with my new surfskate. https://vimeo.com/467173866 Though I'm still far from perfect, you can see that rotation really works for turning and accelerating the board.
