    You are both out of your minds...this is amazing. Short Skiboards, Backpack on Groomers, Pole Mounted POV, AND Cheesy Euro Progressive Techno???

    Sounds like a huge pile of fucking WIN to me!!!

    I have three questions
    Does your arm get tired holding out your dumb pole cam.
    Have you ever harpooned someone with your dumb pole cam.
    Do you ever notice the people openly laughing at you.
    That's all

    - your stance is much much too narrow
    - the camera is embarrassing
    - 125cm ?? well, that's about the same as using a state of the art rocker/camber ski in terms of effective edge so you could have just skied S7s
    No future in this skiing. Maybe PM rontele if you need advice in buying some real skis.

    The future of skiing looks pretty dismal. I'll stick with the present, thank you.
    Change is good. You go first.

    I don't mind the negativity - I just had to get it out there.

    there's a reason why you're riding alone dood. Surely you've wondered why no one EVER wants to join you.

    I ride alone so I don't get held back by dead weights and dead beats. It's not always like that, but I destroy most skiers on the pistes.

    That was dope. I wish I could try, but I have degenerative patellar gingivitis, and I don't think my knees could handle the forces generated by such extremecarving.

    hmm, the skis are short because they have a really short radius (about 6m) if they were longer with that radius they'd be too bulky. Then, if you have short skis, you can't depend on skidding, edges too short - you're getting better sensations with skiboards in my view. But the future is in the style first and foremost - riding the centripetal forces.

    the only thing worse than that skiing is the music that played during it.

    but on the bright side, short skis could teach all you backseat riders how to get balanced.

    Hi, I am no ski technician, so I am a little slow. What exactly is the innovation here? THese look like snowlerblades... With exception of the twin tips, your invention is what lousy american skiers use to stumble their way down bump lines and break their legs. But I am a fool jong so I don't know, I must be the fool.
    I demoed the TECH TALK JONG! pro model this spring and their performance was unparalleled which is good because I ski in a wedge most of the time - bendtheski, 2011

    This guy is really committed to carving, even if it means cutting off little kids, like here http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...rwBSu07KU#t=4s

    Olympics - I know you're being sarcastic, but I've never got too involved in racing.. or liked it.. and when it was, it has never been slalom. I should get into slalom.. but Olympics unlikely. I am pretty risk averse. One of the reasons I got into carving was because I didn't want to keep getting a buzz from cliff jumping or steeps (and I never had access to good pow.) Perhaps the high from carving is more endorphin (soul) than adrenaline (fear.) Snowboarding was okay for a while. How about you? What does it for you?
