Well, the same way as in the ski-carving in the board-carving we try to strictly avoid any skidding. The turns should be smoothly flowing. As a matter of fact this leads to a nice development the g-force which we (with pleasure) counterbalance to the point of almost lying on the slope. The whole board-carving business is then about living up all the many hallucinatingly exciting turns: starting from the fast & narrow up to the grandiose & closed lay-downs covering the whole width of the slope and the breadth of our "fantasy" (for the rider's body can reach the free-fall velocity limit hence experience "free flying" sensation). It is not unusual that, in these turns, we touch the slope with our hands (durable gloves highly recommended) which makes the rides one of the coolest spectacles around. If you've got excited by ski-carving (by the onset of flying sensation) you can rest assured that carving board riding will deliver you killing loads of these feelings. I you like explanations then consider this: while carving a turn with carver-skies the g-force is splited into the two ski edges thus you may deduce that freeing oneself of one edge concentrates the available force to just a one single cutting line - your carving board edge. Such a g-force concentration and the fact that the riders movements are not cluttered by the second edge allows for much higher riding dynamics. A dry summary of this used by the "carving gurus" is "the well carved turns" (clearly a "flying sensation" in its pure form putting aside the real flying itself). The carving board technique learning is by no means limited by age.

One turn right and another left .......

With the last decade outburst of carving skiing in Europe and over the whole world we have come to terms with its snowboarding offspring: the "carving board riding"; often also called "Freecarving" or perhaps "Alpine-carving", according to the mountains where it has enjoyed the biggest popularity. Adoption and mastering of "space technologies' by ski manufactures has made it possible to build the state-of-the-art carving snowboards which, as never before, allow riders to experience impressive g-force effects while in the "well carved" turns. What's this riding technique all about? Well, the same way as in the ski-carving in the board-carving we try to strictly avoid any skidding.

The carving board technique learning is by no means limited by age. On contrary, it is not unusual to meet riders of (more then) mature age "slicing" the slopes impressively. This makes it clear that contemporary snowboarding is not just a fun for the youngsters but a rich domain explored by all ages.

It is my hope & believe that these pages will help you to (re)discover a new dimension of your freedom and thus allow you to make decisions that will lead you to take the steps for an on-hand experience. As hard as the first steps may be your effort will open to your life new & exciting pistas.
