Nils, I've read that you use Level gloves. That is my choice, too. I wonder what your opinion is about the wrist protection system. Do you use it at all? I have a pair of Half Pipe Pro from this season (already worn) and the wrist protector is much more comfortable in this one than in the previous y...

Guys, How come, that under such a topic no-one is for / against heel lifts. For example I ride 63, 57 and I use a quite big heel lift. This is how I find it comfortable. I am quite tall (188 cm) and not too flexible (especially my back is quite rigid), so I needed this type of setting to be able to ...

I was actually thinking about sewing and gluing a special material (a piece of seat-belt band) onto the palm of the gloves that I used and worn-out in the previous season. It seems so strong and undestroyable and what can I lose with experimenting with a worn-out gloves. What do you think, guys? Che...

How to fix gloves

Hey Swoard team, Once one of you suggested me to fix worn-out gloves with a special material and glue. :idea: I think this issue is of high importance as the average glove consumption of an advanced EC rider is at least 1 pair per season. :? Could you please share that useful piece of advice again. ...

Livigno

Guys,

Livigno is the coolest place on earth. Slopes are made for EC, and whisky + cigars are cheap, since its a customs free zone and they have wicked clubs and pubs. :twisted:

We'll be there with some EC Skier friend in March, 6-13 :D

Anybody will be there with Swoard? :?:

Cheers,

István

Hand and finger injuries? On average I have one per a day. I only had one more serious 2 years ago, so my middle finger on my right hand is still a bit more thick than the other one. Girls love it :lol: What I figured out to avoid such injuries is that when my palm touches the ground I flex my finge...

Hey Eduard, By saying hollow back I ment that (no matter how hard I try) usually my butt is the first to reach the ground in a basckside turn. I was asking you, because looking at the pics (which are great) I saw that you have a similar body position (2nd picture). Patrice and Jacques has a much mor...

Protective Gloves

Hey, I started to buy Level gloves 2 years ago. I always buy the top model, full option. It's called Half Pipe Pro. Frankly speaking, most of the options are useless. :( It costs about 100 EUR. Check out http://www.levelgloves.com/ The wrist protector really works, and it has a special shield also o...

Hey Eduard, Congrats for the pics!!! Just one question: what's your stance in degrees. I am asking this, because my backside is quite similar to yours (although I'm not waiving with my right arm) and I also have a feeling that my butt hinders me from going more deep as it touches the ground first. A...

Hey Everybody, We'll be riding at Kaunertal glacier, Austria from the 23rd of October for 4 days. :lol: :?: Is there anybody going to the same place, same time and is willing to lend me his / her Swoard for a trial. 175cm, hard flex, if I might ask. :twisted: I desperately want to try one. Cheers, I...

Difficulties in backside

Hi Nils, I just can't stop watching the videos day after day, again and again (even though I'm spending most of my time in my office in the bank) and I have noticed something that I would like to ask you about. I am quite happy with my frontside, it is not too far from what Patrice and Jacques are d...
