And personally I prefer flat or camber between my feet, not rocker (with very limited exceptions).
If the OP likes groomers and pow would the ultra dream be a better option than the turbo dream? I'm interested in these two boards also and don't think there is much between them, aside from the ultra shape being tweaked more for backcountry and pow. It would still probably be fine on groomers too. What do you think Nivek, you've ridden both, right?
