Default Anyone have opinions on Ride Crush?

I just bought a Ride Crush because I heard so many great things about it. This will be my first RC board so I'm excited to see what the hype is all about. Anyone have experience with this board and any opinions about it?

First off it's not an RC board

It's a lowrize board which means it's flat and goes into a slight reverse camber

Tomato, tomatoe. It is depending on what your definition of "RC" is. All the Never Summer fans will obviously read that as Rocker-Camber. To everyone else, it's Reverse Camber, to which it technically is as a three stage rocker.

Yeah, I know it's not a complete RC because of the camber between the bindings, but I want that because the parks on the East Coast are always hardpack. Technically it is a RC, just a different kind of the technology. Anyways, I asked for opinions, not facts about the board, haha

I got to ride the 2010 crush for about 3 hours recently. Good performing board, but it doesn't have as much pop as I expected. Thats all I got on the crush. Although, my Dh2 also has the lowrize rocker and I really like it. Its a really mellow design for free riding and just messing around on the flats, but it doesn't sacrafice much on medium airs. On larger airs I start to miss traditonal camber, but I don't go big except a couple times a session.

Ya there is some confusion with this.

I def view RC as Rocker-Camber and Reverse Camber as Reverse Camber.

Which is why I replied like I did, and I think he thought he had an RC board if he thinks it has camber between the bindings....

I guess I would rate it about a 4. That number probably is about as helpful as any other BS you find on the internet, but as a frame of reference I tend to ride really soft boards like the Ride kink and the horrorscope or medium stiffness boards for all mountain. I would get this board if you are starting to lean toward jibbing. Its a good place to start to find your flex preferences while hitting different features.
