Generally alpine boards have longer edge length and a bigger turn radius
than general-purpose boards. They are also narrower and are ridden with
forward stance angles, typically around 60 degrees. Furthermore, the
hard boots and bindings used provide a better interface to the board.

However the guys at extreme carving use further specialized equipment.
Their boards are a little wider than regular alpine boards (around 22 cm
waist as opposed to 18-20) and have sidecuts on the order of 12 m. The
wider board lets them run a little shallower angles on their boots, I
think typically a 50 degree stance. They also like bindings with good
lateral movement.

If you're interested in learning more about carving, the hard boot
community congregates in the forums at bomberonline.com. The tech
section of that website has a lot of good articles on equipment and
technique.

  new england snowboard group
Posted by: Guest - 02-13-2010, 02:12 AM - Forum: General - No Replies

Hello everyone,

I used to contribute extensively to this newsgroup, going back to
1995. I haven't had enough time over the past five years or so, but do
check in on occasion. For those I remember -- Dave R., Neil G., Champ,
and others -- I hope you're still riding and enjoying life to the
fullest! I know I am...:-)

For those of you in New England, USA -- I just started a New England
Snowboard group on Yahoo!

[url]http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/newengland_snowboarder/[/url]

If you snowboard in New England, feel free to join!

btw, I have been snowboarding since 1993 -- in Vermont, New Hampshire,
Maine, Massachusetts, Colorado and California. I'm from New England
and moved back here from Calif. because I like it here best. Not
because we have the best mountains, but overall I wouldn't live
anywhere else. I also have a new snowboard company in the works.

Hope to do more reading and posting here this winter!

(PS, have to post this from Google Groups because aioe.org is down at
the moment...hope it works.)

Mahalo,

Looks like there was an issue with header of the website. This has been corrected. When I get time I think I am going to redo the website altogether making this forum more of the main page.
