Re: Closed ski resorts due to the coronavirus

In a place where wearing masks is uncommon, I think the mentality is, if you are wearing a mask, you must be sick, and therefore have Covid-19. Maybe as wearing masks becomes common (Switzerland is quite badly hit with cases), this may change. Other reasons are, we get conflicting advice about masks...

Re: Closed ski resorts due to the coronavirus

It is OK, Patrice - you will survive. Figuratively and literally. :D At least this is coming towards the end of (Swiss) ski season, and most of us have had some snow fun. I personally think the governments have been very slow and prioritised profit over containment. If this strain becomes as common ...

Re: Wer kommt mit nach Zinal 25. - 27.1.? (und wie war es)

Hi joemzl, Thanks for being so active on the social side. And on the piste too. I still remember back in 2016? while I was sitting on the side of the slope, wondering what I just did wrong, you randomly appearing out of the blue and giving me advice :). One day I will converse with you in German...o...

Re: 2019-20 Boots and Bindings for SWOARD DUAL 2

Let me re-phrase. I was riding with F2 Race Titanium and UPZ RC10 on original Dual 175, and conditions which were not smooth, the impact to the feet was not good. It is a wide board, and the damping is not the same as Gen4 and above, it seems. Not sure on the latest Dual, as did not try this (was tr...

Re: [Video] 2nd Extreme Carving Camp in JAPAN

I may be in Japan for Feb 2021....still trying to make the plan - with about 20-30 of my snowboarding friends. It all depends on if it will be in Swiss school holidays ("sportferien"). Nice to meet you Shun and Taro! :-) If this trip happens, I will be sure to get in touch with you! :-) cheers, Coli...

Re: 2019-20 Boots and Bindings for SWOARD DUAL 2

Just my 2cents The Dual 2 is also a great boot with hardboots! Am riding mine with light Swoard Redline bindings ( tried also with TD2's and fin's carbon) and my light TLT6 ski touring boots I am using for splitboarding...the combo is nice and with lower angles than on the Extremecarver it feels al...

It's Friday - EC2020 - where is everybody? :-)

Is there a specific hangout? I saw a couple of Swoard boards outside the bar when I was out shopping.
Anyone meeting for dinner tonight?

Re: Extreme Carving slo-mo video

I think i need a better explanation of push-pull than I have read so far. Am I correct in saying it is pushing (straightening legs progressively from start of turn, and pulling (lifting) at transition across the piste to control speed? Is there more to it than that?
