question about camber
I'm not very experienced with snowboard tech,
and I just received my first board via online order: '09 GNU CHB MTX 159.
My question is about the camber of this board.
When laid on a flat surface, the arc of the camber is much less than I would have expected.
The center of the board is barely (< 1/8") lifted above the floor.
Is this normal and proper? The board is new, BTW. And *not* a BTX, reverse camber model.
I'm guessing that camber design varies widely across manufacturers and models?
My previous experience with camber is with nordic skiis, where the amount of camber is much more pronounced. Just not sure how camber translates to snowboard performance is all.
I have not yet had the opportunity to ride this board to see how it performs,
but I just want to be sure that it's not a factory blem of some sort first, before I use it.
