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.

Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse

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?
