The Machete is a rocker. I know people like to claim that rockers are more forgiving that traditional camber when it comes to catching edges, but I disagree. Yes, if you're in a vulnerable situation, traditional camber will catch quicker than a rocker, but I find that camber keeps me out of those vulnerable situations. It's more stable at speed and removes that squirrelly feeling that occurs immediately before you scorpion in front of a bunch of bunnies.

Have you always ridden rockered boards?
