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".

Agree - bottom turns are definitely "carving", and doing wide S turns downwind (as this is kind of bottom turns frontside and backside with or without waves).

Whereas cutbacks is often not carving IMO, and aerials can not be carving :wink:

But seing the whole bottom turn to cutback "S" line(s) is kind of a carving picture one could say, right ?


If cutbacks were a carve - this thread could just be put under the "spray pictures" instead :naughty:

I dont see that a carve need to involve spray whatsoever though - it ususally does, but a clean fast carve on an efficient board, will make very little almost no spray :thumb:


Carving is IMO when using a major part of the board edge in a continuous curve, no matter if slow or fast or tight or wide :D

Where a cutback most often is a change from using a lot of the edge, to using ONLY the very tail at the impact/lip, and then sometimes going back to digging the full rail on the way down afterwards.
Thus NOT a continuous curve.

Again - I dont think there is an official defintion of what a "carve" is...
So just my personal feel.

What do others find is a "carve", talking kitesurfing ?

The last three pics by Ced1, TuckerM and Toby are slash and splash, but not carving, which doesn't require spray IMHO.
Ligety would carve on water pretty well if he switches sport.

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:
