Swoard Demo Tour 2019 > 5 free events! > info, videos, ...

SDT - 9th edition / ECS - 16th edition !

VIDEOS OF PREVIOUS EVENTS :arrow: here in the YouTube channel

We are very excited to announce here the dates of the "Swoard Demo Tour 2019". :D This "Tour" includes of course the main event "ExtremeCarving Session (ECS)" (16th edition) and four other smaller meetings (in resorts we have "certified for EC"). "Demo" does not only mean that the participants can test Swoard boards, but also that they can watch demonstrations of extremecarving by the Swoard team (the founders and Swoard instructors).
Free lessons or advices are given to explain the ride technique we have developed from 1995 to 2001. This technique, easily identifiable, is especially adapted to the width and other specificities of the SWOARD Extremecarver (now the new Gen5), the snowboard that inspired extremecarving. The words "rotation", "push-pull", "fluidity" and "gesture purity" will be part of your vocabulary. Advices on the settings of bindings and boots are also provided to fully benefit from all the advantages of the SWOARD snowboards.

At least 2-3 Swoard instructors will be present at each event. The Swoard team will be complete with 6 instructors during the main event "ExtremeCarving Session" in Zinal.

The new model SWOARD Dual2 will also be available. Therefore the riders in soft boots are welcome!

The third new model, the SWOARD Extremecarver Pro2, is made in limited series by hand (in 3 sizes and 5 flexes): thus only few demo boards are available. It is presented at the stand with the SWOARD Redline bindings, which are awesome on the snow! They are sold on demand.

The Swoard team


Personal thanks:

Big thanks to all the people who are now also part of the Swoard team: :pray2:
- the Swoard EC instructors: Arnaud, Alex, Frabass, Anthony, Julien, Sébastien, Petr and Abrax
- the staff in organization: Arnaud, Frabass, François (= Le Fanfoué), Sébastien and Petr
- the staff in backstage: Joël, Jörg, Tali and the Forum moderators
- the numerous volunteers helping us in the stands: Christophe, Etienne, Flaviano, Eric, Christian and more (they will be listed after the ECS).
Without your help and passion, those events would not be possible since 16 years. We believe that this is contributing to make snowboard carving trendier in Europe and in the world. Actually many brands are now following on the softboots scene mainly, but with commercial goals. Progressively we will make alpine snowboarding more popular too. :D
