It seems that all snowboard makers are designing more and more “Rocker” type boards and less to almost NO “Camber” boards anymore. Why is this happening?! As a New England rider that has been boarding for 21 years now (I only ride “All-Mountain”), I feel left out. New England is NOT CO, UT, or anywhere else, therefore we almost NEVER have powder conditions. In New England, 98% of the time the type of snow conditions we have consist of Groomed, Packed Powder, and or Ice. So why are there so many powder boards (“Rocker” type) on the market here rather than boards that should suit the local conditions more, such as “Camber” type boards?!
Can ANYONE chime in here with reasoning?!
Please keep in mind I am only commenting on “All-Mountain” type riding and not talking about “Park” or “Pipe” type riding.
Buy a Burton board. They still make camber boards. They are a Burlington, VT-based company,
