Default looking for a allmountain board

hello everybody, I'm spanish snowboarder (6'1" 195lb) who started snowboarding 3 years ago. I started with a Rome Manual board, but now I feel my board very stiff and heavy to make movement going down the mountain (jumps, tricks...)So, now I want to buy an allmountain board, softer than my current one, who let me play all around mountain doing tricks and jumps. I will be most of the time in the slopes and mountain, and very few time sometimes starting to do something in the park.

I was cheking a lot of boards around internet and I have one big doubt. I dont know if it would be better for me a tradicional camber board, rocker board or rocker & camber board. Depending of what you recommend me about the shape, I will tell you later which boards I like me with this shape, to choose one of them at the end.

So.. which shape do you recommend me?

yes, but I mean, which board-shape would be better for me?

┐traditional camber? ┐rocker? ┐hybrid (rocker & camber)?

Skip traditional camber to pump up the fun.

Obviously I prefer RC tech if that is what I suggested. It is fun, has good pop and is stable

If you want the most stability, pop, and edge hold get camber.
If you want the most float in pow and press-ability get rocker.
If you want some of both get a hybrid.

Beyond that it's all personal preference. Both my park and all-mt boards are camber. I ride mostly in VT and NH so it works the best here. My pow board is rocker- no brainer. If you live out west where there's more snow days a hybrid might work out for you. But again, it depends on how you ride and what feels best to you.

I wouldn't get a rocker for all mountain. They're not stable at speed and don't have the best edge hold. I'd either get traditional camber or a hybrid. Traditional will be faster and more stable. A hybrid will be better in powder and probably easier to do tricks. If you can demo a couple boards where you live, that would be ideal. I wouldn't want to buy a hybrid without demoing it first. You'll want to make sure it fits your riding style.

thank you very much to all of you because of your answers! Reading your opinions I already made my board lists. Most of them are hybrid camber except 2.

I'm begginer-intermediate snowboarder, 6'1" 195lbs and 12(boot) I have to buy a wide board because of my boot size so my chances are lower. I want it for an allmoutain use basicly aas I said at the beginning of this post. At the end this is my list:

*with HYBRID CAMBER
- Smokin KT-22 wide
- Never Summer Heritage X
- Lib Tech Travis Rice C2 BTX
- GNU Riders Choice C2 BTX wide
- Rome Agent Rocker wide
- Ride DH 2.4 wide


*with OTHER CAMBERS
- Bataleon Goliath wide
- Ride Machete wide

┐which board do you recommend me?

thanks again!

You might want to add Camrock style hybrid boards to that list:

- Jones Mountain Twin wide (161/164)
- Rossignol One MagTek wide (161) (2011 model)
- Rossignol Angus wide (162)

Jones Mountain looks nice, but for my boot size I should go to 164 instead 161, and I dont want a longer board than my current one (162)

Rossignols looks nice too, but I couldnt get the waist wigth for wide models.

I take out Ride DH 2.4 and GNU Riders choice becaus of the graphycs, so I'm still in the mood for any of this boards:

*with HYBRID CAMBER
- Smokin KT-22 wide
- Never Summer Heritage X
- Lib Tech Travis Rice C2 BTX
- Rome Agent Rocker wide

*with OTHER CAMBERS
- Bataleon Goliath wide
- Ride Machete wide

Anybody tried the Smokin KT-22? is good for jumps, tricks, presses, rounds... all around mountain?
