don't even ask.

anyway, does most of the riding that travis does look like "fun" snowboarding to you? heavily rockered boards or boards with lost of rocker between the bindings just simply are not as stable at really high rates of speed and are harder to land cleanly on, especially on very large jumps with a lot of rotation and torque. when someone says a board is "fun" they usually mean its very easy to ride and do slower speed tricks on. travis is a very powerful rider and despite all the marketing hype regular camber has its place in that type of riding.
