Definitely appreciated, so no worries there

Funny that a bunch of PNW people commented. Take it as a complement AAA. I think it's pretty interesting how far reaching snowboarding is stylistically... that's why I checked the thread. Cheers!

Golf is a great spectator sport, when the players are not very good. I love watching some noob duffer pounding their club into the ground while screaming at the heavens

You clearly have not attempted playing golf with a good beer buzz going. Great way to spend a Saturday in the summer.

I dont think they do it because it "looks" cool. It is like a driving a car and making a sharp turn at high speed and feeling the g-force. It is that feeling of all your body weight is pushed to one side but you are moving in the other direction. next time you drive try to make 90 degree turn at 40-50mph and see if you like that feeling. If you do, you will prob like to do these.

EC is fun, but unless you are blessed with steeps, or good fast conditions (good as in fast, not slow, hero snow on a fairly flat pitch is slow)... you bleed off way too much speed.

EC is also dependent upon conditions. chopped up pow is easy. You can literally "snorkel" in fresh pow with a solid base underneath. If you don't extend all the way you can lay it down on slightly bumpy ice, but your ass will tend to be slightly up in the air...

PS: you can EC in softboots too

Respect for these guys riding but it's not my thing. Well, actually it's not that it's not my thing, I want to do everything in snowboarding and focusing on one thing to that degree would limit my time to spend on other aspects. Deep, laid out carves on groomers are fun, though, so I can see how it could appeal to the point of specializing in it.

In my opinion, (guessing here), learning how to carve slow/fast on ice steeps would refine your edge control for application to other parts of you riding. Except maybe freestyle...

(Yes you can carve very slow on ice rail to rail, with your body dragging or inches from the snow, I've seen it done)

I'd ride softboots more if I had big mountain lines, chutes, pillows, powder... I envy you west coast people!
