Default Reverse camber?

I'm looking to buy a new board and need some tips.

Looking at maybe getting and reverse camber but definitely don't want a banana board cos everyone's got one,
A mate recommended a capita horoscope, anyone know much about these?

I've heard with reverse camber they can wash out a bit on when landing off booters, I've been snowboarding a while and know that this boards a more fun park board etc, makes the presses look dope etc, although I've also heard that the reverse camber boards go good in pow keeping the nose up

anyone got any comments on this? Cheers

Any help would be appreciated

it's a dope board. Very very light and you can make extremely sharp turns. I haven't washed out with it because Flat Kick is subtle. Presses and jibbing is really easy but the base is extruded which is pretty weak. Also the top sheet gets damaged pretty easily but nothing that epoxy can't fix. Are the 2010 models out in Australia? They stiffened the 2010 model up a bit which I think is better for riding all around. It's a really good board for the price. But I would also check out Bataleon Evil Twin, which has a sintruded base and Triple Base Technology. Also check out the Never Summer Evo-R which has a sintered base and reverse camber with loads of pop.

the evo-r actually has rocker camber, not reverse camber like ek3 stated

thanks for the tips,

yeah I've heard really good things about the horoscopes

the 2010 capita boards haven't landed in australia yet so I'm debating wether or not to wait round or try get another board.
