Heart_and_SoulYeah.. how do you know what 99.5% of NS think? How do you know that no one will like HC'ing given only 1 person has ever tried it and he liked it on piste (but not on jumps)? How do you know racers think their style (or skis) are so perfect when they're under strict FIS rules regarding ski dimensions?
Anyway, when I skied NZ (including Mt Ruapehu) the problem with that trip was that whenever I asked anyone anything about anything, all I got was lies and misinformation. It must have been my Aussie accent or something. I just can't trust your opinion and there's no vids of you skiing.
Resort to ad hominem if you like, but I say that for a variety of reasons.
Newschoolers, in general, are the first to climb all over the hype train and get excited about anything with even a modicum of merit. I don't see a queue of NS'ers lining up to start Heartcarving. Considering the pure distilled shit that NS has got excited about in the past, a product has to be held in exceptionally low regard for the current mixture of disdain and apathy to occur.
At the end of the day it's basically laughable. The reason nobody is hyped about it is because you're trying to build hype about skiing in a very ordinary manner on a pair of wonky skis. I've said it before and I will say it again, there is nothing revolutionary, noteworthy or exciting in the slightest about either the skis or the way that you use them.
To use another metaphor, it's like you're trying to market going for a walk, except you wear your shoes on the wrong feet and you zig-zag a bit, but you're telling us all that it's a revolutionary new form of transportation and that all other styles of perambulation are somehow comparatively flawed, although only you and 1 other person have ever tried heartwalking and anyone who has watched a video of it can't actually see any particular merit in it over conventional walking. Not to mention heartwalking comes with some sort of strange marketing campaign that sits somewhere between confusing, deluded and obnoxious, and is delivered by someone with a strange fixation about penises.
Wait, no, that last bit is not a metaphor, that's Heartcarving.
