What does slashy mean?

Example- burton fish is described as surfy or "slashy".

the fish has a really short tail allowing you to rotate the board with ease, compared to a stiff long board (old standard for pow boards). the pow slash is the best trick in snowboarding, and is what really separates it from skiing. They use terms like slarve? sliding-carve.

heres my how to:

find a fluffy bank on your front side

come in with lots of speed (speed is always your friend in pow)

start with an aggressive carve

at the apex (center) of your turn release your edge, weight the nose, and let the tail start to rotate (white room)

hold this lip slide position as long as your momentum allows

pull the nose up as you get the tail back under your body, a little edge will help

look back and admire you work

Don't we have a snowboard terminology thread somewhere? This belongs under the definition of slashy. I couldn't have described it better myself.







Freakin' awesome...
