Interview with ski instructor Martin


Martin, This morning you’ve tried the Board2ski
for the very first time. Could you tell us something about your
first experiences please? Yes, today, I’ve tried the Board2ski for the very
first time. In fact, it has been an astounding number of times easier than monoskiing. In the
past, I’ve been on a monoski two to three times. From the beginning on, this facilitates a much
more natural way of moving than on a monoski. It relieves the pressure on legs and hips
and the position is a lot more neutral. It is also easier to get on the inner edge of the
ski, caused by the elevated feet position of the outer foot or leg caused by the rocker
technology the Board2ski has. Is there a significant difference between a
monoski and a Board2ski when it comes to getting rid of the rotational energy that needs to
be absorbed before the end of a turn? Do you still need to use your upper body
on a Board2ski to absorb this energy? No, I’m clearly more relaxed in my upper body.
Especially as a beginner, the upper body is a lot more relaxed on a Board2ski.
On a Board2ski, I don’t need rotational counter force energy caused by the upper body, as is needed in
the beginning when monoskiing. In addition, boardskiing is a lot easier because of the
positioning of the legs and the rocker technology which makes it a lot easier to move the inner
hip to the mountain. What do you think, would this be something
for beginners? Would it be easy for alpine skiers who
would like to try something new? For an average good skier who knows how to
make parallel turns, this definitively provides something new. At the moment he or she
would get bored on two skis, he or she should definitely try a Board2ski. Thank you.
