Extrême snowboarding


Explanation:
Snowboarding is of course "surf des neiges", but nobody says so.
"J'ai surfé à Zermatt" (the English word to surf is also taken over)
"J'ai un snowboard Nidecker"
I have a Nidecker snowboard (famous brand name)
"Ce surfeur fait de l'extrême"
This surfer is into extreme snowborading.
C'est un surfeur de l'extrême.

It means that the surfers do not surf on conventional snow, but descend through virgin snow over cliffs and rocks. It is a real "casse-coup" sport (neckbreaking). Pictures of those surfers flying down from the mountains are spectacular.

extrême


Explanation:
Planche à neige extrême
ou surf des neiges extrême

With "extreme", you usually see "surf des neige" more often than "planche à neige", the word "surf" in itself holding more excitement.






extreme

Note : Par exemple, le ski extrême et le canoë-kayak extrême sont des sports extrêmes.
