Re: Boots and Bindings

I however, was fascinated by the grace, power and fluid carves. Welcome CarveJunky and thank you for your compliments! The fluidity and the way our turns seem easy (even on difficult snow) come from 3 factors mainly: 1) Our "push pull" technique. Check out a recent thread here . 2) Our extremecarvi...

Dangerous for the shoulders?

Although snowboarding is a lot safer than a lot of people think (esp. alpine snowboarding!), this way of riding is a bit dangerous for the shoulders I guess. Good warming up required... Yes, it may be dangerous, especially if the visibility is bad... Running into a bump or a block of ice that one h...

Re: Give us a clue

Slow chairs or surface lifts? Mainly slow surface lifts :D For extremecarving, we prefer the slow lifts: a small flow implies few people on the slope and room for our turns! Resorts with fast chair lifts like Verbier are crowded hells for all the good carvers (snowboard and ski too!) :evil: Last ti...

https://www.extremecarving.com/movies/movies02.html

The boards in the movie are exactly the same ones we plan to produce for you (except the deck "look"). Damn, they work so well. Jacques is my god! :lol:

Who wants an extremecarving board?

We have to precise that our (your) EC boards could be sold to anyone around the world. The cost of our snowboards should be somewhere between a production race board and a high end custom board. We hope it won't exceed 800 Euros, taxes and shipping exclusive. For now we are making tests and we still...

Avoir de la concurrence aurait l'immense avantage de relancer l'alpin dans le grand public et donc, de remotiver les frabricants à nous faire de chaussures, des fix, etc... ET OUI! Je rappelle que notre but n'est pas de faire du pognon (et pas d'en perdre!)... Nous souhaitons relancer notre sport, ...

Re: FELICITATIONS

Salut bebert33, merci pour tes compliments! :oops: Je trouve le matériel Alpin actuel beaucoup trop spécifique, orienté compétition et j'ai donc laissé tombé la discipline depuis trois ans. De très nombreux riders sont dans le même cas que toi! :cry: Je connais aussi tant de moniteurs, qui pourtant ...

Re: ?!?

Did you kill every skier and rider with a bomb?!?!?!? There's no-one on the slope... This resort is small, far from the closest town, and has low speed lifts. But it's why I love it: there is always few people on the slopes! For both pictures, the altitude is 2900m at the top and about 2500m at the...

Carving/alpine comeback

From another thread ("On piste" forum): Well, I was in Grossarl, Austria the whole last winter and I must say that I gues 90 percent of the locals rode alpine. Wow! Very impressive! Austria has always had an alpine spirit, more than any other country. And they rode it HARD! The pupils were all ridin...
