I have an equiptment related question.
So last season (and some of this one) I have hit a few boxes, down boxes and rails on my SN Pandora which is a Hybrid. Have tried boardslide, not successfully but can swivel by board without catching an edge to get the feel. All ok.

This week I have been using my Stepchild PMS and while I love it for jumps I seem to be nailing myself about 3/4 of my efforts on a BASIC box.

Do you think one style of board is more forgiving or is it all in my head. I feel that Its different even when I come into my prep, harder to not be on some sort of edge on my new board.
I initially fell on my ass but since have been going down/coming off on my toeside trying to remain flat. Looking at end of box always.

Any advice appreciated. Just want to know if it is ALL in my head or if it is slightly harder and less room for mistakes on my camber.

If its al in my head, there is a LOT of chatter in there right now.
