the riding in that video is the snowboarding equivalent of those chicks that twirl ribbons on a stick in the olympics to me.

i think its funny that they're so hyped on carving but they're dragging and tripoding with their arms on every turn. lame. bad style. less skills than staying up.

Still looks fun. Not to do all the time, but just to learn.

@shredlife: "bad style. less skills than staying up." lol less skills than staying up. Let's see you do a euro carve then.

I thought euro/extreme carving is sick, just not a fan of the hard boots. It's freakin rad to be able to lay down those carves.

i can carve like that in soft boots on a heritage. duck stance makes laying back on the heelside a little harder and it probably doesn't look like they're heelside turns but if i rode with tons of forward lean and a forward stance it would look the same.

go ahead and drag your hand every 3rd or 4rth turn, fine - you can do that with style. those guys are doing push-ups off the slope on every turn and its weak.

I was really impressed how Poutenen rode that Virus. For the first time in a long time I witnessed somebody in command of both board and slope. Just awesome!

Cannot wait to get out again. Remember Creeper, I have every other Friday off and can take some Fridays as vacation days

Sounds good to me!!! We're there this Friday and Sat for that big mountain challenge, then off to Kimberley for a couple days. Hopefully we can get out again a couple weeks from now?!?

Such arrogant words needs video demonstration of your riding euro skill with your soft rockered boards and duck. Without video demonstration - the words just a joke

Do you really can ride like this?

2 Poutenen:

I like your board review very much.
Unfortunately your video from first post is blocked in my country

PS
I agree that euro-carving is more a trick than riding technique. But it is very complex trick. And only few people in the world can do it like one's on the video.
And not all russian riding euro. Many ride bomber or race style. For example:

Thanks! Unfortunately board reviews for fancy soft boot boards are few and far between. Most softbooters think that $1300 for a board is retarded, and most hardbooters spend all their time trying to convince me to switch to hard boots!

Oh yeah, that video was just Meatloafs "2 out of 3 ain't bad"

I'd love to get some video of the Virus on the snow next season!
