Here is first crop of ECS photos in my website: http://carving.grewu.org/gallery/ecsV/first_impressions/index.htm Not so much of carving photos, as I haven't waded through them yet: I took ca. 3000 photos 8O , 90% of them are riding photos and rest scenery/stand photos. More riding and scenery photo...

Oh yeah, boots like this: http://www.bomberonline.com/VBulletin/showthread.php?t=2058 :lol: I couldn't find this booklet anymore and old F2/blue tomato info about extreme carving, but I think that this extreme carving was mentioned by F2 when I bought my silberpfeil (2001/2002 model) but I didn't wa...

F2 has used for years term Extreme carving (or Extrem carving sometimes) to advertise boards and bindings. I have copy of 2004/2005 Blue-tomato catalogue, where F2 bindings were recommended for extreme carving and Silberpfeil has been advertised for years as suitable for extreme carving. Obviously F...

The impulse for changing the edges on carving skis/snowboards is however NOT the rotational movement BUT the unweighting/weighting of your legs in the form of Cross-Under, Cross-Through, or Cross-Over. Trying to carve without unweighting will not work at all. Hi felix, I always try to avoid this wo...

One goal for me to post this picture collection is to show that racing technique is not so far away from freecarving or even extremecarving as many people think. Indeed, as from mentioned book one can conclude, there is not so much difference between EC and racing techniques. EC is rotational (but ...

Felix, don't get your hopes too high concerning this book though, as it is what it says in title: "fundamentals". Thus if you looking for deep technique discussion and common mistakes explanation, then it's not there. Just basic details about body mechanics and carving techniques. As I see it, it's ...

M. Cirigliano published recently book, discussing modern racing technique (neutral non-rotated position) among other things with number of pics and image sequences. http://www.snowsportmoves.com/book.html A bit pricey shipping costs to Europe (though with current USD rate it's not too much), but I'd...

Have to agree with last posters: this count is probably not in days, at least for riders like me, who get 1-2 weekly trips to mountain during season. I bought my Swoard in Dec 2003 and I still don't think that I can EC. Of course my riding days per season is between 10 and 15 in average (in one seas...

Well, at least deeluxe has acknowledged ideas from EC manifesto . From their homepage: http://www.deeluxe-hardboots.com/html/features.html Alpine boards are becoming shorter again, even broader and less hard. The binding angle got flatter and see there – its fun again riding with hardboots. Its poss...

Carving equipment theft is not unheard, in bomberonline someone complained ca. month ago about it and in french forum Syldavid wrote, that his Swoard was stolen from the garage. Of course, in these cases it was not theft from ski-rack, but still... I personally use bakoda lock and leash: http://www....
