Is it just me or....

Do rocker boards suck? I rented one the other day, and found they blow fat chunks. No good edge holding, and hard to maneuver with any decency. I returned and got a camber for the day.

I have yet to really ride one (only tried my friends K2 WWW rocked for like half a run) so I'm probably not one to speak...but I think most people would say that you didn't give the board enough time and RC is something you gotta get used to, to really appreciate.

what exact board was it?

There is WAY too much information in this post...could you provide cliff notes?

It's a totally different ride that needs more than just a few runs to get used to. They don't suck they are just intended for a different purpose.

You can't compare the two really. Its like riding a nice mountain bike all your life, jumping on a bike intended for the skate park and saying it sucks. Well... if you expect it to be a mountain bike then yeah, it does suck.

The fact that you are renting doesn't give your post much validation.

I've been riding cambered boards for 16 years, still love the X8, but will also be adding a rocker to the quiver next season. Had no trouble getting used to the one I tried (Evo-R) just a different feel and flex pattern. Yes it's different but it doesn't mean its a bad thing.

What the hell? Seriously every company has different Rocker/RC tech that ride entirely different.

Im assuming you rode a banana if you couldnt figure out how to ride it, as its much differen than a regular camber board.
