Hi there,
I used to do Alpine carving snowboarding back in the (happy) days when this kind of surfing was in fashion. I got hold of an asymmetrical carving snowboard with bindings in an op'shop in Auckland.... but I can't seem to find any hardboots to ride it.
Would anyone still have a pair of these in his attic or his garage (or know a shop that would still stock this) by any strike of luck?? (size 9 - in any state!)

There are a few Antipodeans on the BOL forum who might be able to help.


Otherwise, Alpine snowboarding is very popular in Korea and japan, with several manufacturers there.

If you search the BOL forum, there are a few ski boots that work.

Nobody (there's always a few exceptions though) rides asyms anymore. Alpine snowboarding has changed a lot in the last ten years. You might want to do some research before buying anymore gear.
because I'm so inclined .....
Thank you for your reply. Asking around NZ, I found out that Edge to Edge ski shop in Whakapapa still stocks alpine gear, boards and boots and all... there is still a little community of carvers down here!
