You referring to Dylan Gamache's in this clip, at around 28 secs? Cos that (and all his euro carve variations, look so gangster. What a boss) maneuver is a thing of beauty. This whole clip, really tho is too. If haven't seen this, it's a must.

No, not like that one at the 28sec mark.
He brings it back around.

I'm talkin', once you are fully reverted, so still going forward, with the board backwards.
Instead of bringing it back around, to your normal riding position.

Just turn your body, keep your board reverted.
But turn your whole bod around, so you are now riding switch.

It reminds me of the Terminator haha.
When he has his back to you then, turns it into the front of him.
Hard to explain.

Go into the revert carve, then once you're board is completely turned 180 & you are still facing the way you came into the revert.

Change body position, so you are now riding switch.
Your board stays reverted, but you come out of it riding switch.
You are in mid deep toe side carve when you turn your body position back around.

You exit it, already deep into a toe side carve.

I've only seen a couple people do it.

Phedder The rollers in the second pic? Not sure how to describe how big they are, but you can see from the tracks the air time we were getting. Probably a solid 5-7m traveled in the air on that first one? But that's coming into it pretty hot due to the steepness there.

Mate who had a decent camera just put up a few shots, he managed this one of me which I love for two reasons: It's the only picture I've seen of myself riding switch, and it's also right before I had my first and hopefully only tomahawk of the season haha. My switch has improved a lot this season, but apparently not enough... Tried to butter it back around and ate shit hard. Neck still doesn't feel quite right hah.

My powder board was up the hill so I only had my Cobain with me, handled everything like a champ.

From the top lift up.

Looking across to the peak. Our group put in all those tracks.

Clearing weather

From the peak back along the ridge.


Couldn't believe there weren't more people hiking. I was exhausted by around 1.30 so spent the rest of the day finding as many side hits as possible, end of the day decided on 'one more run' once the others had given p and as soon as I rode off the chair got a massive cramp in my rear leg. Had to sit there massaging it for 10 minutes before the last ride down hahaha, worth it.
Gawd damn.......
That second pic, how big are those rollers? Lol

Yeah, I prolly woulda got a hard on too?r
Prolly, what am I talkin' about haha, it's hard as a rock right now & I'm only lookin' at the pics. Lol

Not sure if I woulda pulled over to fix it though?
Maybe share with someone?
Fix though? No.

Hahaha TT

First time filming myself snowboarding so my riding and the angles are a little awkward, plenty to learn from though. 30 Minutes later the sun came out hah, gutted.
