.otto.i race ski and in racing there is always a clear and correct way to turn, but really that limits what you can do so much on snow, its cool to see people breakin skiing norms and doing cool stuff
Carved+Dangerousyeah thanks -- I find racing neither enjoyable nor practical. I did race with HC 1.0 on a GS course, and didn't get a very good time, probably because I took such a different route down the course that I found myself fighting the ruts. That said, people saw me as such a weirdo that I obtained social points that way anyhow.
With HC'ing, I win every run in terms of stoke and it makes the ski experience much more social when I share that. In terms of the Heartslayers, the downsides would be building a ski that doesn't warp, keeps sharp edges for longer, and allows high-speed straightlining (with hands behind back) into a slay turn (a full-edge skid) without shuddering. I have solutions for these and other issues.
I think HCing can be a layer of style (and technique) that racers build over their existing technique, and involves a fairly substantial shift in consciousness.
.otto.do you think people can argue that their is a "correct way" to ski(carve)? or is it a subjective matter rather than objective.
