Would you need a rocker for this??

I'm totally inspired by this vid. YouTube - Snowboard butter flatland tricks turns carves manuals snowboarding spinning slashing snow flat ground tricks Ryan Knapton

Would this be possible on a cambered board? Or would it be MUCH easier to do on a rocker?

thx!!

Look through the comments. It's a cambered stiff board. He's a pro. But yeah, I imagine it's easier with a rocker, unless something about the camber helps him stop his rotation precisely or something. He's very accurate. I imagine it takes more practice than "board specs" to do what he does.

He compares it to the Custom X (stiff) on one of the comments it looks like.
He aslo said that the Custom (medium) is not good enough.

Reply Most park or pipe boards should be fine. Billybob has it right with saying it is mostly you... but that said, I do prefer a stiffer board for it. All this stuff I do on a Unity pipe board... soft flex boards just kind of cave in on presses and feel flat where a stiffer board still has some much needed spring on it as you are pressing. I've ridden a Burton Custom and it just wasn't very good for this stuff because its too soft, but the stiffer Custom X works good. The Unity Pride is good.

yeah, not arguing with you at all. I said it was probably a mid flex since they market it as an all mountain freestyle. I have no experience with the board so that was just an educated guess
