Hello guys,

I have been riding classic camber boards for the last 20 years.
My main strength is groomers: I know how to handle speed, carve, do quick turns, etc. My weakness: jumps! I catch edges a lot when landing so I am pretty much scarred of doing jumps.

I want to improve my jump skills, and this is where i have discovered that hybrid cambers could help me. But I have also discovered that there were 2 kind of cambers:
- A: camber-rocker-camber, like the Lib Tech Jamie Lynn
- B: rocker-camber-rocker, like the Jones Mountain Twin

I know those 2 boards handle very well speed on groomers, which is of course my MAIN concern, but which one of those 2 will help me improve my jump skills and be the most "catch-free" on landings?

Thanks,
JT
