So mostly I just do hybrid

Honestly most people can't carve properly anyhow, which is probably why you don't see many people carving at the resort.

SnowRock This may be a "get off my lawn" style observation but I think you don't see a lot of people carving because they are learning on boards that you don't need to carve on.

Not that you can't carve on them... I just bought my first hybrid profile board and love it, but I think if you learned on a stiff, too big for you, camber plank at some point you were going to have to figure out how to carve if you were progressing or life would suck.

I see some people throwing shit down and riding fast as hell that don't look like the can carve at all and I would've been scared as fcuk to ride like them.

+1

On groomer days I'll normally lay a few hard carves throughout the day. Not something I do every run.

Just wondering how often do you carve, like half of the time? Or is it because the snow conditions are too bad. I'm at Big Bear in socal.

Thanks,

I'm absolutely shocked. Shocked I tells ya, that you don't see carvers in jibtopia.
