    And where do you do your windsurfing, mikerb?

    Well I totally agree as long as we compare the use of a snowboard with the use of one ski. When you put on two skis at the same time its a game changer and the G force becomes your friend.

    Here is the best english skier of the 20 century.

    It might still be some progress on skiing to achieve for the UK lads

    I bow to your superior knowledge...but ( there is always a but isn't there)..
    Skiers never ( now) use soft bindings and always stand ( feetwise) inline to direction of travel ..The mono skiers I,ve seen use hard bindings, with feet aligned in direction of ( presumed) travel and feet almost touching...To my mind that makes the two items as different as chalk and cheese. I can board quite good but dont think the skils I,ve developed boarding wouldn't transfer to a mono ski..
    Yes, somebody at top of their game in either could demonstrate an ability to cope in any conditions...for me in any challenging conditions I,d choose board everytime...( even on ice) its probably wrong word but its easier to get good on a board...skiing requires a lifetimes dedication...I started too late to do that...
    I,d been skiing since 15 or so...at 36 learned to board. Within 3 seasons I was a more competent boarder than I,d ever been a skier. I think that is a fairly general finding..
