Practicing both disciplines, hardboot carving and soft boots freeriding is technically very enriching:

  • precision, dynamism and pushing power for hardboots,
  • mobility, softness, fluidity and wonderful snow touch for soft boots.

Gathering all these qualities together allows a faster learning curve because the rider doesn't remains the "prisoner" of a unique vision of snowboarding.

Every windsurfer or kitesurfer chooses the most suitable gear to the day conditions. Why wouldn't a snowboarder do the same?

Don't delude yourself, most of the days of a winter season find mainly hard or icy snow conditions... But when the powder is there, no hesitation: soft boots and a freeride board!
