Special thanks for Vahur for standing whole days on side of slopes and having just few runs during whole weekend. Hope to see more carves of you in Oppdal :wink:

I'm still traveling home back from Zinal, on boat whole day today, but here is some pre-taste what it was there:

Sunday riding images (not very good quality wise due to uncooperative weather) and some stand and Saturday evening images are now available. Place to start:
http://carving.grewu.org/gallery/ecsVI/index.htm

Next week I'll put images up for those who have asked for them...

BTW, what's the tongue thing :?: So many riders stick their tongue out during ride, does it really help balance or riding? Maybe I should try it also, as my riding sucks and every help is extremely welcome :lol:

Thanks vahour for your wonderful pics and your great contribution to the carver's community! You are one of the greatest "keepers of the spirit" in my eyes! :D

I have a theory about tongues: In some cases (like mine) the leading area of intelligence lies at the front of the tongue. Thus the impuls to important or demanding moves starts there and is led via brain to body (i.e. my hand and fingers when writing or my upper body and legs when snowboarding). As a second path for signals would rather hinder my coordination thatn supporting it, there can be hardly any better explanation. :lol:

Vahur, I also like to say thank you a million times for your great pictures!

In my opinion it is great to see on the images just a part of the second out of a very fast movement 8)

Here are some images I took on Saturday, they are no where near the quality of Vahur's, which are fantastic. I have none of Sunday as I was unable to ride(even my soft boots) due to my shin bang. Enjoy.

I am glad you like your picture Alex. Vahur got two of me which are great, one of them is now my desktop picture. Thanks again to Vahur, I have not had any pictures of me riding for years, I am normally taking them of my kids skiing and boarding. Use the picture however you want Alex and that goes for anyone who I captured, aslong as its to the benefit of hard boot riding. :D

Once again, this ECS was pretty well organized!
I progressed again this year just by watching good riders as well as riders less experienced. Anthony also helped a lot during the "training lessons"
I had the opportunity to spend the whole week after the ECS to practice and that was very worthy. Not to mention that for the last Friday, I had the Barthelemy just for myself!
It is also a pleasure to meet and ride with nice people met the previous years.
Thank you Vahur and Jeanma for the pictures.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
