I really really.. envy you.

I hope I get "hero granular" today...

or maybe smooth hard ice (perfect for dialing in technique)...

I'm tired.. I think I'm going to go with "hero granular".... (pleasee!)

i must be part of the 1%... that looks soooo awesome and fun... i've never seen or heard of anything like that before! (intersting enough, when i carve, i actually like to put down my arms and touch the ground with it just like they do with their forearms/bodies... lol)

thanks for the videos and the "carver's almanac" link... i'm not going to immediately go out and get hardboots and plate bindings, but i'm sure there are some very good lessons to be learned and applied to my style of riding. i might not get that extreme, but i'm sure i can get a bit more "low" and carve with a more aggressive edge angle now...

totally *my* cup of tea haha...

i was "trying" to take some of the lessons here and trying it this past weekend... for one, wow it's a workout! the key takeway from the first video is to bend your knees and almost squat to coil yourself and then push your legs out as you do the carve and then recoil back in. it makes some really quick carves/turns. really fun...

i found a really cool video of people who aren't doing it as "extreme" (i.e. totally on the floor) so it gives a reference point of what an "intermediate" hardboot carver does... which is probably the best a softboot person can do. the coolest thing is the guy at ~4:15 in the yellow jacket-- he's on softboot/bindings and having a great time and looking awesome... i wanna get at least to that point... so fun, thanks for sharing the link/vids. i found a few more (some in german or french, but not as good as the russian one originally posted)...

Nice video.

It looks to me like that guy is using too much rotation on the heelside carves and is getting some unwanted board twist (making his tail edge hold slightly sketchy) - the very thing I'm working on correcting.
