Yeah, not saying it isn't a good board. I just have a problem with the claim of "the worlds best camber board"... Best at what?

The would be like saying the Bugatti Veyron is the worlds best car. It may be the best at getting from point A to B in the shortest period of time while using the most gas, but it's not the best at taking 4 people and their snowboards to the mountain.

I guess my problem is with the word BEST. Is Aaron Rodgers the best QB ever because he has the highest career passer rating? Is Schumacher the best driver in the world because he won the most F1 titles, or does that one go to some of the long haul truckers that have multi-million mile accident free records?

The best carving camber board would be an alpine board.
The best floating camber board would be a 200+ cm long powder stick.
The best jumping camber board? Who the hell knows...
Best camber board in the trees? Who the hell knows...

The best overall camber board? The one you're riding on a great snow day.
