3 Since when you are on hard snowboarding.
Since the beginning
4 What do you think about new tecnologies: decamber, rocker, taper, multi radius, materials such as carbon fiber and titanal , plates.
Todays boards are incredible but hopefully in 10 years they will be even better!
Board builders should always push design to make improvements, keep ideas fresh and to learn.
What is new is the way these ideas are now being applied using modern materials and technology.
Modern materials and technology have given new life to many old ideas and also present new possibilities for snowboard design.
5 Why hard?
The sensation of speed and being directly connected to the edge is incredilbe! It's a really pure sensation of being in touch with the terrain and flying while feeling the ground move under your feet.
6 What could help the raise back of the hard snowboarding.
It is already happening.
The level of riding and technology is stronger than ever.
The reason the sport is guaranteed success is because of the passion we all share in it.
7 Training techniques.
Go fast! Take chances!! … and also focus on the basics of Strategy, Tactics and Technique

Take time to have your boots fit and set your stance up correctly. You will ride better and have more fun!
