Re: Inspiring video: SUP foiling, performance with rotation technique

Thank you Patrice and Rob for the great videos. Rotation is really obvious in those videos and shows the benefits of fluidity that comes with it. Agree with Rob on the need to show EC has rotation as a fundamental technique (combined with push-pull) and when pushed to its "extreme", one ends up EC-i...

Re: Feedback on the Swoad Redline bindings

Hi Patrice, Thanks for starting the thread. First visual impression: the bindings look beautiful and reflects much of Swoard's Zen-ish designs: simple, beautiful and functional. I am jealous of those who tried them and am looking forward to their feedback. I have a few follow up questions: 1) What i...

Re: Feedback on the Swoard Extremecarver Pro

I received the PRO 161 last spring. I live in California and last spring, we had a severe drought which means no carving. :snooty: This season we have had too much snow (thanks El Nino) which is great. :angel2: However I had a severe ankle injury sustained right at the beginning of the season which ...

Re: carving switch et un peu freestyle : quelle(s) solution(

Salut xavc, D'accord avec toi que carver switch + quelques sauts + quelques EC = c'est le grand style de polyvalence. Ceci etant, on ne peut pas tout avoir. C'est comme si tu veux la performance d'une Porsche avec le comfort d'une Roll Royce mais qui consomme l'essence comme une mobylette. :wall: Ce...

Re: EC technique / methodical

Hi Andreas, After the expert advices from the pro Arnaud and Rob, there is not much left for others to chime in :bravo: :wall: That said, here is my 2 cents 1) For your heelside, Arnaud correctly pointed the lack of upper body rotation. Remember that when you rotate, ensure your waist also rotates a...

Re: Swoard ECS 2013 - 10th session: Feedback, pictures, etc.

Hi Rob, If you are sitting at the top of that slope, it even feels steeper than in the movie. The top section is really steep (and fun). Great raw film, really enjoyed it. Feels like I am sitting by the side with a pina colada watching all those amazing carvers coming down. Just a quick comment. Con...

Re: Getting close

To avoid the toeside counter rotation, start looking uphill (aslo helps for safety) when the board points downhill, and keep looking uphill throughout and ONLY look downhill when you start changing the edge to the heelside.

Bonicman, Looking good. :bravo: I recognized myself in those pix and I was young, fearless and not even close to handsome :mrgreen: . You are correct to point out you are close to EC. Rotation heelside is well done and as a proof, you have the two hands on the snow. Few (intend is contrustive :bravo...

Re: EC instructors in USA in Vermont/NJ/NY/PA areas?

Joe, Toeside is looking good! Here is what you can do with your heelside turn at home. - Stand 2 feet away from a wall with your back against the wall with your feet angled like on your board - Get into the “Egyptian” position i.e. a) Back of palm of backhand touching your butt b) Front hand palm is...
