  1. Here's a nice online litle tool I found to easily mesure and calculate skis and snowboards sidcut radius... http://member.fis-ski.com/skicalc.htm Great when you dont have the specs of a board!
  2. Oh yeah! J'y serai!! Pas encore sûr de l'endroit ou je dors (chez mes beau parents à 45min) ou plus proche si quelqu'un à un petit coin au chaud pour me laisser dormir! :)
  3. ... Another thought about heelside chatter: You probably apply a more equal pressure with both feets when you grab the board, less so when you try to extend your body EC style. With the back foot not pointing forward there is a good chance that you do not have the same pressure on both feets, that you are twisting the board witch could cause the chatter. Typical EC board have high torsional stifness.
  4. Picture on the left, knees fully flexed with hip rotation, ass over the rear boot... On the right, ass sticking out, it the snow, lose control.
  5. Because when you flex your knees, with a "Duck Feet" stance without enough rotation, your ass will it stick out too much over your heel edge. It will hit the snow, remove the edge pressure then make you fall. You need to rotate your hips so when you flex your knees, your ass goes down over your rear boot You won't be able to rotate your hips enough in a Duck Feet stance.
  6. EC Backside turn wont work in "Duck foot", you need proper body rotation to be able to exit the turn... Your left hip should be lightly brushing the snow, not your ass! Look at the bindings angles at the beginning of the video below...
  7. En fait oui, il y avait un petit problème, certaines photos était "privées", c'est corrigé... Le lien plus haut c'est pour le "slideshow", celui-ci pour l'album complet: https://www.flickr.com/photos/146955506@N08/
  8. Non pas de problèmes, j'ai juste tout mis dans un Album Flickr, plus facile à gérer que 150 photos individuelles....
  9. Samedi c'est bon!
  10. J'y serai mercredi après-midi avec quelques amis du travail, ouvert à tous!
  11. Donc verdict final, Adstock samedi avec toi et Réal et Relais dimanche avec Pat et Jef...?
  12. C'est bon pour moi aussi... samedi Adstock, dimanche Relais?
  13. Confirmé, demain après midi... 13h30 à 17h ...
