I want to try something new.
Since I've started snowboarding, all of my boards have either been flat, camber or camrock. To be honest, before I came here not too long ago I didn't even know there were different board shapes other than length, width, twin, directional and, well, how they looked. I just snowboard because I love it. I taught myself and never really got educated on it, just relied on my time on the hill. Yes, hill. Not mountain.
In the past, I would just buy a board based on the description at a shop, or what a manufacturer's website says, then ride the hell out of it. I would always gravitate towards all-mountain boards based on my riding style, which is probably why I've always had camber or camrock.
I'd love to try something new to get more perspective and perhaps a different feel. I know nothing about rocker boards other than how they are suppose to ride, but when it comes to RCR, RCRCRCRCRC (wtf?), hybrid, C2BTX (wtf?), C3BTX (wtf?) Flying V (wtf?) etc I'm not sure what I should choose. I don't really have the option to try boards before I ride them, unfortunately. This is why I'm making this thread.
What I'm asking for are some boards to consider that have rocker in them, primarily between the feet since I've always had camber between the feet. I would consider my riding style all-terrain freestyle/freeride, love trees, steeps, ride a lot of switch, moguls, high-speed groomers, etc. My park riding is minimal, maybe 25-30% of the time.
I'm 5'10", 170lbs in a size 8.5 boot.
I'm not brand loyal
Prefer a twin since I ride a lot of switch
I would appreciate any board suggestions to consider. As I said, I'm just looking to branch out to a different board profile and expand my snowboarding knowledge/experience. This won't be my main board.
As always, I really appreciate it.
