New Boards Alert:Andre Barbieri
PossAbilities did it again! They got me two custom made boards for my upcoming Paralympic campaign:))
Some of you probably know that new board feeling, same as new bike for instance. New board new dreams!
The difference is that these are race boards, specially designed for me, each one for the specific discipline of Boardercross (SBX) and Banked Slalom (BSL).
They are stiffer than your regular snowboard. They have a longer sidecut radius, the nose and tail are more square and not as round. They are faster, but less forgiving. So you gotta use the right technique otherwise it’s easier to fall.
Hopefully they’ll be easy to get used to so the transition will be smooth and I’ll race well in China with them.
Very soon I’ll be reporting about them from Canada!
