It is not a huge hinderance (the full rocker that is) but if you are in powder a lot than S-Rocker (or any rocker in the nose and camber in the tail) is worth it.
Oh so if you're on a plain rocker and are going at really high speeds, will your lead foot rise a lot higher? Perhaps making you like "skip" on the snow?
