I still ride camber. It just works better here in the east where we have a lot of hard pack conditions and edge hold is at a premium. I demoed a few rocker boards and combo decks last season and it just didn't work for me and my riding style fast/agressive, I felt out of control on them. Washy at high speeds and quite chattery. I also rarely ever touch the park....but maybe the rocker or hybrid setup would work better there. I do spend some time in the pipe as well, and can tell you that a bunch of people are still riding stiffer cambered decks there. The deck I have riden the most this season has been the Capita Quiver Killer from last season, I'm happy with it for a stiffer board with camber, and it didn't break my walet.
