The thing to understand about what you're looking for is you need a board with more contact length when on edge as that's where all your control is. A zero camber board is going to be your best bet as it provides a constant effective edge. Camber is tried and true and will give you a lot of what you're used to. Rocker isn't what you want it just doesn't grip enough. The only real reverse I've found that works is Omatics B.S. Tech s and Never Summer R.C. tech.

Personally I'd go zero camber and look at either the Salomon Answer or the K2 Believer. If you did go camber then the Ride Concept UL (probably my favorite pipe board to date) or if you can wait till next year snag the Omatic Celebrity B.S. (Louie Vito's pro model).

The Custom X is a "tried and true" pipe board.

Sucks, they discontinued the Concept line of boards. I forgot the name of the board that replaced it. I really wanted to try to concept UL at the test fest :/
