This season I'm looking at moving from Rocker/Camber/Rocker Boards to Lib Tech Camber/Rocker/Camber boards. Mainly a Travis Rice Pro or a La Nina. My first question is with a TR pro is HP necessary? I've heard that the boards run a little heavy. I freeride but I like a nice spin weight.
HP is definitely lighter and a little snappier, if you're into speed and think that little difference will help you out and you got the cash, go for it. T. Rice is a beast board either way, so you won't be disappointed.
