  1. ... 1 week every winter...
  2. Working on my EC turns, getting pretty good and smooth, toe side still need a bit of work but I'm close! Wide black runs are a pure pleasure, can't get enough of it! At 44 I'm not getting younger, I really need to stretch, everyday if possible. Front leg is working harder than the other one so I need to keep doing some weight training to balance it out. I had a stiff left tight for a couple of month but found a good way to releive that with a massage gun, works wonders! I'm also helping others try hard boot carving, I have a couple of boot sizes, from 25 to 28 and some older boards that I can use for a demo day with someone. A collegue of mine just got his first hard boot setup and will try ot together next week... I'm always opened to give some tips to friendly beginners and intermidiate carvers. It's been a good season so far, life is good!

  4. It was for a colleague of mine, he sent you a PM...
  5. Still available? Very interested!
  6. Hey boys and girls! Here is two 4k montage of our trip to "Le Massif". A nice sunny day with great snow and an incredible view of the St-Laurence River... Enjoy
  7. Hi, I'm looking for Mondo 30 boots and large F2 Bindings... Thanks!
  8. Good, bad, depends on your goals. Is it safer or more effecient in every conditions than "regular" carving technique, no. Is it challenging and fun, hell yes! It's like doing tricks on a softboot board, it's fun but you need to choose when and where to do it. EC helped me improve my carving on steep runs, rotation and "push-pull" also help me to be more versatile and dynamic , no more stiff legs and "sitting on the toilet" on back side... I think EC add tools to your toolbox, and lots of fun!
  9. If you want to go on the path of Extreme Carving (EC) to lay it down, forget isolation plates, buy an EC board with softer hardboots like the Deeluxe 325 or the UPZ XC12. EC boards are wider, more versatile than thin and stiff race boards. The stance is also more comfortable, rear foot is usually between 45 and 50 deg.... Combined with softer boots you will have a setup you can ride all day, carving the groomers and laying it down in the morning and still carve the chops in the afternoon...
  10. This is my setup: Coiler BXFR 168 x 26cm, 11m vsr Deeluxe Track 325 boots with BTS F2 Titanium bindings 22 inch stance. Rear: 25 deg. with inward cant. Front: 50 deg. with toe lift. Rides great and I can quickly switch any board I have!
