I have had both this season, still have the outsiders. The outsiders is definitely stiffer. length wise it has full length carbon stringers that help make it poppier and feel a little stiffer than the DOA. The Camber also goes further out to the tips on the outsiders. If you want a flexy board to press out, get the DOA, if you want something a little more well rounded to do more than just park, get the outsiders

Way softer than the DOA. Camber extends past the feet though. I took a couple laps on one, I'm a big guy, it was a limp noodle for me, my son is 185 lbs and it's a fun park only board for him

im 6.4 and weigh almost 200lbs, i have the doa in 156 an i like the flex and size but i dont like the fact that it have rocker in the tips because it makes it easier to overpress.

You "dont like the fact that it have rocker in the tips because it makes it easier to overpress" but want something softer than the DOA? What?


Thunderstick would be a solid option, if you really wanted something softer. The graphic next year is awesome too, like a little brother to the BSOD.

I have the pickle, the DOA, and the outsiders.

I get what you mean about the pickle - it's flex is actually not that soft, but the rocker profile makes it easy to press. But after going to camber I'm not going enjoy rocker anymore - the springiness from camber boards is just too much fun.

I sort of understand your point about the DOA being able to roll over easy, and you will not find that problem with the outsiders. BUT the outsiders is definitely more stiff, it's pretty tiring to press in and out of the outsiders but still doable.

Ever tried the Salomon Villain? I took it off my buddy and rode a few times on it, felt very similar to the DOA but softer. Personally I thought the DOA was better, but maybe it'll fit your boat considering you want a softer camber.
