Well I've been riding this Palmer a little bit lately, it only likes to go straight down & I know it can go faster than me. This thing is fuckin' lightning.
Palmer Snowobard

But it's almost no fun to ride.
You can't relax @ all, it's like a fucking job.
I haven't ate shit on it yet, thank god, cause fuck is it ever gonna hurt.

When it gets choppy & shitty, you gotta watch out. With this type of board it's really hard to "make a save" if you will.
You know, when for a second you are out of control & you are fighting with everything you have to make it out alive.
This is a split second thing, once you're out of control, you have a fraction of a second too "make a save".
Some boards you can just manipulate & pull out of it every time.

This one, not so much. I've had a couple heart stoppers on this thing already.
So close to eating shit viciously, my fuckin' life flashes before my eye's.
For the next ten min or so it gives me heebeegeebees/goosebumps

This is one of those boards.
If anyone around me wants to try it, you're more than welcome.

I've also noticed that, if you didn't started out on a camber deck, a normal camber deck is really hard to ride. Every person I know that started on any sort of rocker/hybrid, hates regular cambered boards.
