Re: Besoin de conseils

Bonjour Havanax, Tu as raison de te remettre au snowboard! Les sensations de carving sont grisantes et addictives. Pour ma part je peux juste te donner des conseils par rapport à Swoard, c'est tout à fait faux de penser que les boards sont réservées à la pratique de l'EC. Au contraire, tu auras de l...

Re: New EC12: the first Extreme Carving boots, ready to use!

Absolutely great! :D The Swoard team has developed from scratch a new sport, extremecarving: a new riding style, the boards that facilitates the most that technique, and logically the bindings and the boots that are adapted. They have come so far from the start! And with the success that we know as ...

Re: Nouvelles EC12: les 1ères chaussures d'Extreme Carving, prêtes à l'emploi!

Magnifique! :D On peut dire que l'équipe Swoard a développé de A à Z un nouveau sport avec l'extremecarving: une nouvelle technique de ride, les boards qui permettent d'exploiter au mieux cette technique, puis logiquement les fix et les boots qui vont bien avec. Quel chemin parcouru depuis les début...

I would say Le Col in Zinal is steeper than Les Crets in Grimentz.
There are 2 drawbacks with Les Crêts:
the steep part is very short, I'd say less than a half of Le Col, and the chairlift is TERRIBLY slow :wall:

Re: What have you noticed at the Olympics Parallel Giant Sla

Wintergold, maybe I was not very clear with my explanation. I also love snowboarding in all it's aspects. When I was referring to racing technique it was literally, as at the Olympic Games. I was not talking about your video. My aim was just to emphasize the fact that the gear adapted to one riding ...

Re: What have you noticed at the Olympics Parallel Giant Sla

It is again (!!!) about drawing lines between different aspects of the same (!!!) sport. I'm sorry but I don't agree with you. But first I have to tell you that I have absolutely no experience with plates. In my opinion the carving technique promoted by Swoard is a different sport than slalom races...
