what size of board to improving my carving technic

Post by zkormendi » Tuesday 6 February 2018, 14:38

I'm 90kg and 192cm tall.
Using an F2 roadster alpinboard (162cm)
I'm a quit experienced alpin boarder but can't make curves like these...


What size of board do I have to use to make a carving sliding on my belly? :-)

Hello!
You obviously have a board that is a bit too short for your size...
I am 190cm/82 kilos and am using the 175cm x 23cm wide Extremecarver model (Swoard ;)).
It is more adapted to your size and has a bigger radius probably than the Roadster 162.

Then its all about learning to do the rotation / push-pull technique described on this forum or on https://www.extremecarving.com site.
Good luck!
Nils
