If it ain't broke...
I'd consider myself an expert freerider. A pure freerider/bomber, I don't do jumps, ride switch, never hit the parks, ollie or butter. When I started riding 20 years ago all my friends were skiers so the style I developed was all about conquering gnarly terrain. Steeps, chutes, trees, double blacks and moguls.
So now I need a new board. Should I consider one of the newer techs, most notably ns r.c. or should I just stick to what I know and get a regular old camber board. I'm still considering ns, just wondering if I’d be happier getting a 2009 w/o the rc.
Another issue is ice though; it’s the one terrain that I find sketchy. Is the varrio grip worth the trade off in the difference in feel from rc?
I guess the best question to ask seasoned riders, how was the transition to rc and do you love it or instead prefer the old regular camber models?
Also I live in the east coast so I've got no chance of demoing a ns, I could probably demo something in the burton line that might be comparable though.
