    Yup, I definitely want to watch a movie of people ripping groomers.

    there's a big resurgence in carving happening in snowboarding right now, mainly driven by the huge number of riders that are now entering their late 30s/ 40s and can't really relate to all the double/triple corking. directional and even asym boards with setback stances are back in. pow will always be the best thing you can shred but i've been having a ton of fun soul carving the groomer to get back to the lift lately instead of just straightlining it like i used to.

    here's a vid making carving great again:

    Nice to finally see dudes carving on snowboards. Those laid out front sides were sweet.

    Does this mean the end of boarders sliding down a slope on their heelside, and removing all the soft snow?
    I fucking well hope so.

    I wasn't aware that turning ever went out of style.

    my favorite shot is the laid out heelside at 1:43. so much harder to do than toeside without washing out.

    sorry to highjack the thread. skiing on groomers is cool too i guess

    Yeah I know. I've snowboard before, *gasp. I just like the laid out front side, styley and smooth.

    I'd see the movie from the op if that's indeed what the final intent is. watching a good skier from the lift on the way up is always fun for me, esp. the balls to the wall skiing like what's in that clip

    I'm with you on this. As far as I'm concerned, it's always been about the turn.

    And yeah, you're right, too. It drives me nuts to see these guys who are the 'best' skiers by some accounts, slarving their way down the mountain. I suppose I'm just old school.

    GLUE is another good free snowboard video sans 1440s and energy drinks mitten camera pats what wutz . Great soundtrack too.

    MC is the man. Saw him at the Bird a couple of years ago in the spring ripping a bumped out Silver Fox at 40+mph like it was nothing.

    95% of people don't know where their edges are or how do to use them, it's been like that forever. Back in the mid 00's when everyone was on carving skis, almost nobody carved. At least with wide skis, people can skid all over the place with more ease and forgiveness, which ultimately means more control.

    I give the 40+ crowd a pass since most of them learned on straight skis anyways.

    But for those of us who started skiing in the 00s on shaped skis? No excuse. Learn to tip those skis and leave a trench. Maybe leave the hellbents at home for a couple days and bust out the "nerd skis".
