So the main difference between the two is camber and v-rocker right?
I know that it isn't all that easy to explain to someone in words, but can you tell me how differently rocker and camber? Or just how differently the two boards ride.
The custom is a normal width board and the v-rocker is a mid width board.
The custom will be a little more stiff than the v-rocker version.
As far as how they ride. The custom is going to feel a little more responsive at first but once you adjust you will feel more agile on the v-rocker.
Personally I feel that a norma camber board does a better job handling cruft and death cookie type terrain than a reverse camber board.
While I haven't felt any real problems at speed, some feel a reverse camber board is not as stable at speed. Again, I disagree with this.
The v-rocker will feel a lot softer directly under foot as you wont have to do as much work to get the board to flex. This will probably take the most getting used to as you adjust to the different flex pattern but it is not a negative, simply a personal preference.
Another thing. A normal camber board will give you more resistance when landing in the back seat. This safety net is a lot smaller on a reverse camber board and you will wash out easier. This is a trade off and one you should think about. How clean are your landings? Are you willing to dial down your tricks while you learn the new camber. To me this is a positive as it keeps me honest
