Is there any point to going RC when all you ride is groomers?

I've read and read and read on the subject and know about all the different magnatractions and every thing else. Last year was my first full year riding and I made great progress. I've just started riding some boxes and have yet to ride any pow. I've got a credit at The House and I'm wondering if I pick up an RC board...

reverse camber changes everything. just because you arent riding pow doesnt mean it is pointless to have. plain and simple, reverse camber is riding on its own planet. not saying its better or whatever but it is different.

if all you like to do is ride fast and carve it up, then no, but if you like to ride more skate style (lots of buttering around, ground tricks, bonking and jibbing) then yeah you might really like some of the rc concepts out there.

Cool thanks. Since I've already got a couple decent cambered boards I think I'll look into using my credit at The House for a RC.
