New to Camber! What to expect coming from a CamRock upbringing!
 
Hi guys, here's my first ever thread! I've recently picked up a 2014 Burton Process Camber board for a really good price but was just wondering what to expect and how it rides compared to a CamRock board. I've pretty much learned how to snowboard on my Yes Basic CamRock board and consider myself an intermediate level boarder now but was just curious to see what a camber board can do! I have tried a Rocker Board in the past (GNU Carbon Credit) and absolutely hated it as we have icy conditions most of the times here in Australia and hate the slippery feel to them. Would be great to here some feedback.

Hey man.
Camber is the best for bombing fast especially on the icy melt freeze shit we get in AU.
Pretty sure you will love it, just dont get lazy and the rewards camber can give you are amazing.
Ive tried everything and still prefer camber even in a pow board.

Expect to have the feel of more edge hold on the surface of the snow!!!!!

* This is a rough idea, as the boards behaviour will also depend on a whole heap of other factors, such as flex, width, base construction, stance, amount of camber, effective edge length, etc etc!!!!!

And to avoid any "catchiness", make sure you de-tune the contact points!!!!! (Some will come factory de-tuned, but its always a good idea to go over it anyways)

Camberrrrrr
 
im a hotham rider and for australian conditions, camber is probably the best decision:thumbsup:. unless you ride a lot of park. otherwise there is no point riding a rocker if you are going to be riding groomers or any backcountry. it is a bit harder to ride along some flat spots because you need to pay a bit more attention or you will catch an edge:dizzy:, however, not sure if i would de-tune the contact points though, i've de-tuned mine once and i didn't like it so i never bother de-tuning anymore but try it and see what you like.

Thanks guys. Yeah, that's half the reason I picked it up...cause of the icy crap we get here most of the time. I'm actually heading over to Queenstown, NZ early July before I hit Perisher/Thredbo? You guys reckon I should bring along the new Burton Process Camber board or stick with my old Yes Basic for the trip?

Also, Should I pair up my Burton Malavita's or stick on a pair of Burton Cartels or Union Factory's on the Process?

burton.snow3 05-23-2014 05:21 AM

take the process or both? i have only used cartels so i wouldn't know about the Malavita's or the unions... why not take all three?

I'd take the Basic seein as not only you're used to it, there'll also be a decent chance of Pow in NZ and perfect for the CamRock!!!!! * Unless there is room for two decks?????

When ya get back home there should be a decent base down for Oz, so you can test out the new ride!!!!!

I'd stick with the Vita's so you can make a better judgement as to how the board compares to ya Basic!!!!! (I'm guessin that you don't own the other binder options yet?????)

Yeah, I was thinking of just taking the Yes Basic to NZ. I actually took it to Japan earlier in the year and it handled the POW there just fine! Just excited to try a new board though! As Burton.snow3 says, I might take both if I have enough space for 2 boards.

Sounds like a plan!!!!!
