Who are we?

From 1995 to 2001, Jacques RILLIET and Patrice FIVAT started to develop the technique and style now known as "extremecarving" (EC). They made the first extremecarving snowboards for continous linking of fully laid turns (armpit to armpit).

They launched this Web site, based on their "extremecarving" concept, in 2002.

One year later, in 2003, pushed by the enthusiastic public they created the snowboard company SWOARD with a third snowboarder, Nils DEGREMONT.
