3 Since when you are on hard snowboarding.
Since 1985 with the first Fritschi Platebinding and Lowa Skitouringboot.
4 What do you think about new tecnologies: decamber, rocker, taper, multi radius, materials such as carbon fiber and titanal , plates.
Rocker: good for Powder.
MultiRadius: we use that since the early 1990's.
Taper: good for some stuff, I prefere not too much of it.
Carbon fiber: too fragile for my taste, I prefere CarbonKevlar.
Titanal: very powerful and grippy, more fragile than regular construction.
6 What could help the raise back of the hard snowboarding.
