3 Since when you are on hard snowboarding.
4 What do you think about new tecnologies: decamber, rocker, taper, multi radius, materials such as carbon fiber and titanal , plates.
I think that there is too much attention on the equipment and technology and not so much on the technique.
Riders should be more concerned on developing their technique rather than pay a large amount of money to purchase the latest equipment possible.
Snowboard racing is different. Plates and materials like titanal are important since they can enhance control in higher speeds and make the rider more competitive.
6 What could help the raise back of the hard snowboarding.
That is not an easy topic.
The level of difficulty that the sport requires makes it unsuitable for younger people that are mainly concerned with the park and big air jumps.
Media coverage could help expand the sport but that requires money.
Events that take place around the world help increase the visibility of the sport and have a chance of bringing people to carving.
7 Training techniques.
Ride with experienced riders and the use of video so that the rider can see himself can seriously help and improve the technique.
8 Whath to say at whom is starting.
Carving is not an easy thing.
It requires technique that it will take a while to develop.
It needs patience, determination and concentration.
9 Whath to say at whom has already.
Ride, ride and ride.
There is always room for improvement.
