    I knew it, you're a telemarker

    I'm pretty sure Jason Levinthal would cry if he had to watch the entire thing.

    I bet the GSA would totally dig this.
    He strikes me as a heart carver.

    I don't know why you're trying to talk like you're a badass- we all saw the video.
    that's all i can think of, but i'm sure there's something else...

    Some words of wisdom from the original poster as found on: http://adrianwaj.com/category/skiing/

    Quote Originally Posted by adria33 View Post
    "I’ve always had trouble categorizing myself as a skier: was I more of a racer, a moguler, big mountainer or trickster? Yes to each, but only to a degree. However, with the arrival of the thicker, shorter and deeper sidecut skis that started production in the late 90′s, and the heart-centered skiing approach that I developed in response to them, I realized above anything else I was a carver: a heartcarver. This in turn improved those other aspects of my skiing significantly."

    "Heartcarving is about harnessing gravitational and centripetal forces enacting on a skier’s body in a more intelligent way by using the heart as one’s focal point"

    "For me, heartcarving has meant virtually no falls, higher speeds, far less bodily and mental stress and more accuracy. Furthermore, more endorphins and less adrenaline."

    "The first step toward heartcarving is recognizing the yaw, roll and pitch that the heart can take whilst skiing."

    "It was about 10 years ago that I realized by focusing on the heart I could relinquish my ski poles. Ski racers at the time were adapting to these new skis. I felt that poles weren’t needed anymore to be counterweights to work alongside the long, straight-edged skis of yesteryear. However, the heart is not a muscle that can be moved at will like one’s arms, it is passive, so I realized I’d have to do more than just recognize the heart, I’d have to recognize patterns that the heart could and would follow during turn sequences and then build a muscle memory around those patterns with the goal of running the feedback loop in reverse: use the heart to alter my skiing via the patterns I’d already determined."

    "Presently I am gearing up for a ski trip to further push the boundaries of heartcarving. I will be using the 2012 Summit Marauders, 125cm (14.7, 11.7, 14.7)"
    This whole situation is interesting, just like this video:

    You should try some, it'll really take your carving to that Olympic/Slalom/WTF are you talking about level you've always dreamed of

    I really enjoyed watching 94 seconds of this video. Everything about it is terrible, and the things on your feet look ridiculous, but this added some value to my day never the less. Thank you.

    I'm not as concerned with carving as much anymore.. I'm moving to park and airs now. Big airs in the controlled environment looks and is fun.

    Personally I like wankin' it while going downhill (coool breeze really gets me off) and right when I get by a crowd of snowboarders lookin' rad sitting in a group, letting the money shot go and trying to spew on as many as possible. It's more easy to do the first time during the day cause you have that bigger build up. Not sure you get any GNAR points for it but I bet they'll start considering it.

    I think the folks at www.alpinezone.com might be impressed with this design. They're all heartcarvers... or ass bandits. i can't recall which.

    That's definitely the Uncle Rico video - he set up the camera and then showed off his "form" for it repeatedly. Knocking down whoever gets in the way is just part of the sacrifice we all make for art.
    Change is good. You go first.

    Kind of like when he nails the camera?

    good shit. first overhead shot looked like a 4 year old on short learning skis, but when he swung his pole around....wow that's a full grown human on kids skis.
    i never realized watching a chairlift ride could be so exciting to watch.
    good shit dude, keep 'em coming.

    (and wow, if i just let go and ski with my heart, i can get rid of those annoying poles once and for all?!? sign me up yesirreee!!)

    buckethead - you're a drummer, you should be able to pick it up (or let it go) easily. Hey, and check out all the drumming vids on my YT channel.

    Since the future clearly blows I guess the only question left is spit or swallow?

    No seriously, I like the way you buzz people standing still on beginner trails.

    I can't decide, can anyone help? ....... it's either a pair of Rax skis or a pair of these with a full powder rocker, a Go Pro camera and a very long pole. I will be mainly dropping in parrallel with my tug toner.
