    Sealskin

    Can you say

    "I love sealskining" and

    What do you understand if I said that?

    And can you say

    "it improves my transcendance". (here I mean going beheind my limits, doing a lot of efforts without being affraid). The fact is that I need to use only ONE world to express that feeling, do you have better suggestions?

    Tank you for your answer

    It is meaningless to me.

    This, also, is meaningless to me.

    Re: Sealskin

    Thank you for your answer!

    Could you also say "I love ski tourning" (to go sking with seal skin under you skis) How would you say that?

    And what world could I use to describe the fact to overpass limits?

    Thanks again for your answer

    You wroted 'sealskining' originally. I had no idea that you were talking about skiing. There may be an expression 'sealskinning', but you'll have to wait for a response from somebody who know about skiing.

    And what world could I use to describe the fact to overpass limits?
    Sorry; I cannot think of any short expressions.

    What kind of limits? Transcendence is used for a spiritual state, not for pushing physical limits of the body and such.
    And transcendence cannot be improved -- you either got it or you don't.
