The Turbo Dream or just me?

I was on last years turbo dream for about 20 days last season. There were days that I absolutely loved it and other days on the same mountain and same conditions it just felt like something was wrong with it. Have any of you felt this with the turbo dream? I felt like I didn't know what I was going to get from the board on a daily basis.

I am about to go on my next trip and I am wondering if I should change boards or not.

It's you not the board. Riding is 90% rider 10% equipment.

I know it has to be me, but I have never had this issue with the other two boards I had. TRS BTX, and an NS SL (no rocker). Those boards always felt the same to me, I probably just need to get used to k2's rocker more.

10 bucks says you're putting your weight either forward or backward and not riding centered.

Thats probably true, I was always tought to put my weight forward. Do you need to ride centered on most rockers or just the turbo dream? I was riding forward on the trs btx with no real issues.

You should ride forward on any board...centered or set back are the only two options. Personally I ride as close to centered as possible on everything but my powder board.

my bindings are centered, but my weight is on my front foot when going downhill. That is what I meant by forward.

You're still learning how to ride their all-mountain rocker you need to stay slightly more centered with your weight till you learn how it'll ride then you can manipulate your body weight to be forward. Ignore what other guy is talking about cause that's just stance setting.

They're all wrong. It's definitely the equipment. Could your bindings be the culprit? Or maybe your socks?
