Oh yeah I am not putting it down. Just weird trying to switch (for me a new rider) from one riding style to another. I do like how catch free it is and the confidence it gives me to take some jumps, press, and try nose to tail rolls. I think my issue is that all season I was only riding my camber board and focusing on carving and speed (which was my goal so it isn't a bad thing). Then I jumped on the rocker and I could not do the same. Just threw my senses off. I knew this about the different boards but to actually feel it is a new sensation to me. Before this I really didn't understand the different feeling it really gives.
I guess long story short. I didn't expect the ride to be that different.
