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.

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.

Prolly, what am I talkin' about haha, it's hard as a rock right now & I'm only lookin' at the pics. Lol

Maybe share with someone?
Fix though? No.

No school groups booked (We usually have 100+ kids each weekday to keep us running) and a not so great forecast meant we were closed yesterday. 15cm fell overnight so a bunch of us went to Ohau to hike for freshies, cleared around 10.30 too! 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.
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.

You got those on lockdown it looks like.
Now do that, but instead of coming back around.
Just turn your whole body & come out of it switch.
If you get what I'm talking about?
That looks slick.
That's how you ride fakie.
You're lucky you got that dude there, that's good right there.
Bring him a tripod, hahaha seriously lol

|Phedder||Decided to try revert carves for the first time today during my break, luckily it was quiet and the lifty loves his photography. Got these snaps from my 3rd or 4th attempt, definitely need to get more leaned over and extended but pretty happy with it so far!|

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.

A group of more than 20 friends both snowboarders and skiers got together on Erciyes Highland. Thanks to every fella for another awesome week of snowboarding/skiing. Freedom for all, Enjoy
