Hey dude, I see there is a lot of hate already associated with your past threads/product but this is actually the first time I hear of this, and I can start to see why the hate is there...just a few questions:
HC__skierYou can also get a buzz driving a car fast (and still being relaxed,) rock climbing or downhill long-boarding. Also, surfing or bodyboarding.
But not in all the above activities at all times: so long as the fear-circuits don't kick in where the subconscious mind senses danger. If you look at Shaun White skateboarding, he usually has a big smile on his face (probably snowboarding too.)
gay: "lighthearted and carefree."
There's nothing wrong with being gay while skiing or boarding. Especially if wearing protection. You can even perform better.
Big-wave surfers are said to have very high adrenaline thresholds - they need those waves to get the adrenaline. Heartcarving is not like big-wave surfing in that respect.
BTW ask a giant slalom skier to go into switch during a GS race, I think they'd have a pretty hard time. On this Piste, where # of turns should be as high as possible and the skier is pretty much on edge the entire time, doing the switch is more difficult unless they straighten up beforehand (which they're not meant to do if striving to do most # of turns.) The switch hump is meant to launch them into the air while on edge, or if they time it right, exactly in-between turns. Or even if they ease-back on the turn and go off it diagonally. Anyhow, It should add some fun to the run regardless.
I have a video of me h-carving a piste here (it starts at 76 seconds and it's dedicated to any skiers from Paris.) I am turning the whole time. I realized here, that there's not a lot of air possibilities unless I hit some kind of hump (because my legs can't extend rapidly, due to their angle, and the g-force.)
So first of all, watched your vid, a part from the fact that you have obnoxious oddly shaped wooden skis, you're just carving dude, I can do that with my pow skis on fresh packed snow, and give me some gs skis ill stay on edge as long as the slope goes down. So wtf is the point of those skis???
I'm really failing to understand the heart rate thing? You're monitoring your heart rate while you ski? wtf is the point of that? You look at it afterwards? how the fuck does it work, I'm so confused...
So the point of your course is to be able to jump while carving right and landing on your edges right? that's like the most pointless dangerous thing to do xD and if you like the feeling of carving and taking air just learn some carved 3s, or if you wanna lean more into it carved corks or even underflips.
Btw, it's not the switch, but just switch. Did The Switch joke come from you? Man I feel like I've missed a part of ns history here.
I'm right with you regarding protection and skiing, gotta stay safe of sure (although if you've never tried it, do a few laps with a hat or beanie and you'll understand why so many "unsafe" people do it all the time: it feels fucking awesome)
You can easily pop while carving, the problem is landing (but tbh, why would you wanna pop in the first place?), landing on your edges is near impossible (and a very good way to fuck your knees up) and you're leaning so unless you're going crazy fast and the slope angle doesn't change while you jump, you'll always fall over. What's this bullshit about g-force? you mean gravity?
Lastly, why you dedicating the vid to Paris skiers? you from there? I live there. Are you french?
Not trying to sound too negative here, I just don't understand most (or any) of the heart carve skis and your weird course :)
