Discovery

iv Ski

All discoveries man has made are merely recognition of his own predicament. So how can anyone claim to be smart, when all that he has discovered is how wrong he was? If something was already there, as it was – how can anyone claim being intelligent when all he did was open his eyes to see the actual state? Whether …

Softness

iv Ski

The technique of skiing with isocentric skis requires greater softness and more subtleness than the present skis. To achieve this, skier must subordinate himself to the skis – just as a musician subordinates himself to his instrument, to master it and to elicit from it the subtlest sounds. Isocentric skis are – especially under the legs – significantly softer than …

Smart

iv Ski

Man thinks only his head or his brains can be smart. However, also his hands, his feet and his entire body can be smart – if only he lets them be. The human body with all its internal and external parts has a mind of its own, its own life and its own feelings. A man can either let them …

Forms of the new era

iv Ski

Man is psychologically evolving since his very emergence. With time, he is becoming more and more pure in awareness. With man’s psychological development, his habits, needs and taste change. Old forms seem awkward and clumsy. Contemporary forms are clear and minimalistic, stripped of any unnecessary additions.

None

iv Ski

It is not difficult to bear a name, it is difficult to be nameless, forgotten… Everyone is striving to be someone; nobody dares to be no one. However, only when you are nameless, can life give you a name of its own and only that name is real. All self-proclaimed names are merely an illusion, since nothing exists yet. In …

Evolution

iv Ski

It is incredible to see how far back skis date and how differently and skilfully they have evolved – each of them being so perfectly suited for that particular time, environment and purpose. Each and every one of them carries a distinct, deep nostalgia, because they were all products of man’s sincere search and love. As such, they are a …

Flexibility

iv Ski

Everyone is bothered only by their own perception about themselves, others, the world… until we do not overcome it and step into dialogue with anyone or anything. By accepting that you are only what you are, you solve the eternal problem, because then you can be everything else to anybody and anybody everything to you. One disadvantage of contemporary skis …

Every day is a skiing day

iv Ski

When you are doing something, do not lose yourself in details, but look generally and in its own time, everything will form by itself. Many skiers do not have the motivation to ski regularly as it is to exhausting. Therefore, they cannot develop their skills in order to make skiing a truly enjoyable, healthy and at the same time continuous …

Defence mechanisms

iv Ski

  We live in a world of flaws in which any disadvantage can represent an impermeable wall or merely a mist. Someone intensifies the smallest nuances into darkness of catacombs, while someone changes walls of imperfections into morning mists. Skiing is based on learned predefined physical patterns, but each skier also develops his own defence mechanisms for situations where skis …
