One of those days - Candide Thovex http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygxufRprWpY

A usual skiing day for Candide in his home resort, could have ended in a better way this time! Out skiing with his friend Aziz Benkrich (red pants), we should probably tell you 'DON'T try this at home' !!

On a ski slope, there are two kinds of people.

The first group is people who seem to have been born on skis. The second group is the people who are humiliated by the first group.


Ahahaahahahaahahahaahah ... You mean like this: (See top Vid 'One of those days') :)

Yeah, you know what I think? I think Schumie has been watching too many of our vids http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygxufRprWpY

Not to mention Fast and Furious star Paul Walker who had been watching this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=vijRI4nA088

I got an eerie feeling what the next victim will be.

Just one of those Days: Iouri Podladtchikov & Shaun White Halfpipe Final

Just one of those Days: Iouri Podladtchikov & Shaun White Halfpipe Final - Sochi 2014 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2QDf4U4w-A

Snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov became Olympic champion in the halfpipe.

The Swiss world champion (fourth at the previous Games) showed two impressive runs, of which the second (94.75) was good for gold.

Ayumi Hirano (93,50) and Taku Hiraoka (92.25) provided Japan with it's first medals of honor with silver and bronze.

Top favorite Shaun White, who won Olympic gold in 2006 and 2010, had the best of the semi-finals, but fell in his first final run.

The American went all the way in his second run, but wasn't able to perform his spectacular jumps flawlessly and therefore just missed a place on the podium with a (90.25) fourth place.

Video was blocked for a while so I think you can watch this vid now.

Please tell me if you can't because it's great stuff!

Some people don't seem to grasp the beauty of this concept.

OK, maybe it is desperate for some updates like a Long-Board skate replace for the ol plank,

Long-Board Downhill Skating http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOaTOC6onwE

and a bit of different breed horse like this one for example:

Italy Festivals - Palio di Siena ;D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_yGZhZItVo

Maybe this one will give you the complete picture but instead of the snowboard a long-board skate and instead of an half mule or a Jeep a full breed Arabic horse:

Ya I have one of these. Went to replenish my supply of tequila one Saturday night and miss fired the trigger sending me through the plate glass window of the store costing 200 for the glass and 4 inches of stitches to my leg.

I stick with my sector nine 36" . Its faster anyway (30 mph) and drunk skateboard riding is best done without the motor BS.

Airboard feels like you are hovering over the snow
« Reply #10 on: February 18, 2015, 07:29:39 AM »
Airboard Trailer DVD "Season O-Nine" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Zx8qUWrDO4

Airboard is the new high-tech winter sports tool, a «bodyboard» for the snow.

Made of high-quality polyurethane covered textiles, light and extremely durable just like you are; steered by shifting your weight, it makes you feel like you are hovering over the snow; the flexible «air body» absorbs slope unevenness giving you a smooth ride; to brake, just turn your airboard at a 90° angle to your downhill direction.

An American lady once advised me to move to Montana. She said you can work as a ski instructor in winter time and as construction worker in Summer time.

On first glance I was very enthusiastic about the whole idea also because she said Schwarzenegger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Msf8JMVku7Y has a house there, he is sort of my body building hero, and I wanted to move to the the States anyways.

But then I realized I can’t ski at all let alone be a ski instructor. Pondering about potential jobs :-\ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LCggmsCXk4


I’ve only been twice in that kind of environment. One time in the German and Austria Alps in Summertime and one time deep into the Italian Alps in winter time which was a magnificent experience with still loads of snow coming down in March.

I wanted to learn ski boarding but they had no ski board instructor in the Italian village so I hired one and went off on my own. I thought I can windsurf so I can ski board. Not. But a lot of fun trying.

Then I got fed up and thought I at least have to have descended the blooty mountain one time so I sat on the ski board and went straight down out of control fast almost bashing in the après ski hut ;D

The Italians laughed at my desperation to stop the thing admiring my courage.
