Capita indoor survival camber version

Has anyone ridden/demoed the 2009-2010 capita indoor survival with regular camber? i can only find reviews of the flat kick indoor survival online and i found the camber version used for $160 in my size. How much of a difference will it make if i am riding the whole mountain and doing park as well?

I rode the '09 Indoor camber and the '10 indoor FK. Both in a 156. They are great boards. The Dk version is a little more forgiving and feels softer because of the FK. It also floats in pow much better. Both are very fun do it all boards. At $160 you can't go wrong.

I have some experience on both boards as well as a wide range of Capita's products for multiple years. Essentially what it comes down too is that you will want the regular cambered deck if you are going to be in the park throwing yourself off the larger features. In my humble opinion, the FK version is too much of a noodle at higher speeds and lacks the pop of its regular cambered counter-part. I never found pressing to be an issue since the riders weight can easily overcome the camber of the board with ease.

Hope that helps!

You'll be able to ride the whole mountain with the FK too.

I can fly down the mountain pretty good with my IS FK, even through the rough bumpy crap. It will probably be easier with the cambered version, but don't think you can't do it with the FK because it's totally possible. It's no noodle.

FK is a good balance between classic camber and reverse camber. I bought mine for 318 - so for 160 that's a steal, go for it.
