What do you get when you mix ballet, knife throwing, surfing and high jump? Normally just a soggy tutu and a bit of motion sickness. But somehow the Slice ‘n’ Dice lads seem to combine all these things to produce incredible snowboard movies. The crew have been dedicated to producing these chronicles of carve over the last few years, travelling all over the world in pursuit of the elusive perfect turn. This episode finds them in stripping it back to basics in Samoëns, France.
If you hadn’t already noticed carving is back in a big way. It’s no longer just the pastime of weird old dudes in lycra and hard boots. Locking in and digging trenches on corduroy is truly one of the best feelings you can get on a snowboard. Life on the edge is cool again and it doesn’t really get any cooler than this.
