If you cannot demo a variety of boards and your next purchase is going to be your main stick, I recommend sticking with what you already like.

If you're looking for a complimentary stick to add to your quiver, it might be fun to add a different shape. You'll always have the cambered stick to fall back on for the days you miss it. Heck, bring both boards to the mountain. I normally bring two in case I feel like switching it up.

With that said, I think you'll like boards with a camber section in between the feet and rocker in the tips. These handle closest to traditional camber boards but gives you the benefit of a rocker's float when needed.

Camber underfoot is also pretty good as you will constantly feel that camber section as you ride.

Never Summer's RC feels completely like a rocker until you engage an edge, then the camber takes over.
