Harder Than You Think – Alpine Snowboarding

It’s easy to think of snowboarders these days as crazed stuntmen; attempting ridiculous tricks in the snowpark or leaping off enormous cliffs in the back-country. Yet the original form of snowboarding – the first logical step after the much revered monoski – was carving down the mountain on asymmetrical ‘alpine’ boards, swooping low and hard through turns. Largely lost to the modern board-brigade; it’s made us all the happier to see this video coming out of Russia this morning.

Lock, Stock and Two Alpine Snowboards is attempting to find a new niche as what the makers are calling, ‘Extreme Slalom’. Looking this damn impressive, we wish them the best of luck with it.
