Re: hard boot liners

Re: hard boot liners

You could try Palau Liners Overlap Soft for extremecarving Overlap Hard for racing/freecarving I use Overlap Hard, very convenient. The style does not matter, it depends on the personal preference. Also Frederic was very kind and developed special model for us, with reinforcement on the back of the...

Re: szaman.t spring system

So much spring system on the market :-)Looks that now it is a right time to ride with rigid lockers :-)))

Because the selection of which one to pick is getting harder than to learn EC without springs on the boots :-)))

Re: Extremecarver PRO, first impressions

Thanks for the feedback, Frabass.

Most interesting is a laydown time. It looks that new board allow you to manage the arc radius when you lay down. Did you try gen4 of different stiffnes than yours?

Re: End of the season :( - broken finger

Nils, you are lucky! it is just finger :-) But anyway i wish you quick recovery.

When i just started ECing i broke two fingers in one vacation. Same cause - ice blocks. On the front hand - small and big. After that i do not put my fingers on the slope and take them together.

Re: Ride techniques > The Snow Coach application for smartph

Very nice ;-) But!

How many of good extremecarvers have used some gadget to improve?

There should an innovative trainig guide with this program. For example you shot yourself and post to facebook and then someone comment on your device ;-)

Re: sword vs swoard :)

Nils :-)))) you are narrow minded!! :-) If there is no possibility to create good EC board, so why not to try destroy the style :-) maybe this will work better. If regular competition tricks are not working, so why not to try political methods. Also, you guys are lucky that he has no that verbal ene...

Re: Heard Rumors..

Carving in hardboots is for desperate maniacs. Only those can reach level of carving art that looks spectacular and breathtaking. Real desperate maniac is rare person :-) it makes any hardboots business case less comercially attractive.

Re: News of Zinal

I learned extremecarving on green slope that is 200 meters long. First time i go to black slope happened after 30 training sessions on the snow.

Also making full laydown turn and stand up on flat surface is quite complicated thing to do :-)try this first before getting to black slope ;-))

Re: to my cousins of extreme carving

It is quite difficult to apply rotation technique to narrow snowboards. They are too live compared to wide boards and react immediately to any movements of the rider. So, if someone want to demonstrate perfect extremecarving on narrow staff he has to be extremely quick to make full linked lay down t...
