comment Twisting board technique when turning a snowboard?
Because it is the essential way to turn - it sounds more complex than it is. (my son realised what was meant before I did, as he didn't have my old school mentality...)

comment Twisting board technique when turning a snowboard?
I've posted up a wee bit on the twist aspect of turning that is essential these days if you don't want to scrub off all speed on a turn with a modern all purpose board.

comment Twisting board technique when turning a snowboard?
I think what you are describing is the carving aspect of the turn, not the twist.

comment Is listening to music on earphones while hiking safe enough?
I love music, but I would never wear headphones when out hiking - the noise of no cars, no industry and just general wildlife is, to me, so much more valuable than any music I have.

comment Walking through an active railway tunnel during a long distance walk
In India, do train tunnels have regular safety alcoves like they do in Europe? If so, this is much lower risk than it would otherwise be. Maintenance workers know to step into them when a train is approaching.

comment Is the outdoor ”cottage industry” only about ultralight?
Small, yes, but those are so specialised the demand allowed prices to be hiked way up - which makes them interesting to the big players again. Also they can use those expeditions as good PR so it's a big win.

comment Plus size wet suits?
Jim - we have a 'be nice' rule. Try and adhere to that. Mods are, surprisingly enough, human, and we follow SE and community guidance. You 'despise' volunteers who try to uphold site rules? Currently, the wording does sound a lot like you want a recommendation of a particular brand, and that is explicitly off topic as per the site rules - you can fix that.
