Does this Qualify? :naughty:

Seems to me that if the board is tracking as if it is on rails, and the tail is not skidding or kicking out, then that is carving. For sure that is the definition of a carve in alpine skiing.

Look at the pure wake left by Ced1. If that doesn't qualify as a carve I don't know what does. But then what would I know. This is my first post. :bye:


Sensible first post, pākihiroa!
I understand what you mean - the track is nice indeed in Ced1's pic -, but on the lip, you can hardly do anything else but to carve (unless you decide to go ballistic); you're drawn into it and there is no real work involved. In my book, you've got to fight against the centrifugal force, which is the case in the bottom turn that follows the off-the-lip, and on hard edged wide turns on flat water.
Cheers.
Alex

Perhaps we should have agreed on the definition of "carving" at the beginning of this thread.
Is turning in waves "carving"? Is throwing water about "carving"? Is an off-the-lip, however well executed "carving"?
IMHO, in waves, only bottom turns may perfectly qualify as "carving".


Yes, you are wright, please give your definition and exemples...
Whats is carving riding??


Maybe the rider could decide for themselves what carving is?
