ECS point? How about: Swoard team is marketing their boards?Udo wrote:What is the point of ECS then?
There is a number of carving expression sessions all over the world. Brownian Motion in Bajkalsk, Siberia last week. SES at Aspen, Colorado this week. There's no lack of hardbooters' gatherings.
But seriously, I don't think that there is too much carving sessions, especially in Europe (AFAIK only pureboarding was organizing bigger events in Europe before ECS and then there were some local gatherings). Aspen is probably best place for carving session, but it's too far away and expensive for week-end event, ECES seems to be abandoned. I hear about this Brownian Motion first time (BTW, Udo, are you from Russia?) and Bajkalsk (is it near Baikal lake?) is also quite far for most of visitors on this site.
For most of participants ECS is just good place to spend some nice time, try out Swoard boards and learn from J & P. Yes, there ain't many riders, who can do EC as J&P, but if you look at their profile, then they have boarded ca. 20 years, this is much more than most of other participants (and they ride probably more than others during one season as well). And experience is required for such discipline.
