Default My questions regarding Reverse Camber

Iv done some research and have gotten mixed answers... im hoping for some conclusive answers from you guys.

So my question is, will reverse camber hold up (not too soft for) exceptionally large jumps? (60+ ft) Is the Skate Banana too soft for these jumps? Does Reverse camber make it naturally sketchy for these jumps? Should i go with a normal camber for these size jumps? Should I go with a stiffer R.C. board?

For my riding style: I enjoy all around riding(including jibs and pipe, but going big air is a primary focus. The answers i have heard to my questions is that R.C. is too soft, some say it isnt. Some people have told me they wash out on tail landings. The most common and most vague answer i have found is that most people say "it is good for Park riding", but are they including the larger jumps? I have demoed reverse camber, but was not graced with the opportunity to hit extra large jumps.

Im currently looking at Rome boards or Lib tech boards sizing around 147 to 153 at most, noting that extremely large jumps dont scare me on a smaller board.

I would think the Banana would be too soft for those huge jumps...i'd check with someone like Burton Avenger...or his reviews from last year...

If you're sticking 60 foot jumps you shouldn't need to be asking us.... A 60 foot jump is no joke....

If I ever start pulling jumps that big and I don't know what boards will handle it, I would be paying for a day of demoes and not taking someones word for it.

are you measuring the gap of the jump or from start of the wedge to the landing?

Good question..... I blew up on a 30ish foot jump last weekend and the thought of a 60 foot jump is freaky

Im asking about the 60 footers because i dont have much money to demo all the time, nor the time to head to resorts with those jumps all the time... But i have a big concern for my health when i do those jumps and im not familiar with the power of reverse camber under those conditions. Typically, i measure the jump based on total aerial distance, though the vertical distance is always subject to change depending on the nature of the jump, however, jumps with a 60ft drop are also an issue... Basically, extremely large jumps (in all ways) are a concern.

Ill cut down the size to get an idea of how stable RC boards are in general, say a 30 to 40 foot, is the landing stable or do RC cause the board to over-flex or wash out?

Anything thats reverse between the feet without camber in the tips is squirrely on bigger jumps, 3 stage rocker depending on the amount of rocker can be squirrely, in the end it also depends on the rider. I could huck a 60 footer but I have enough brains to know its not for me. From your last post it sounds like maybe you need to tone it down a peg or two before you blow yourself up.

I have been making a point to not kill myself on those, getting hurt means i cant work. Ill note to tone it down i think, maybe sparingly on those large ones, eh? And definitely NOT with a reverse camber.

I was looking at the Rome Pusher, do you know how that thing hold up on jumps overall w/o considering 60 footers? My small local resort where i teach doesnt get past 30 unless you really push it. I would use it there primarily.
