[QUOTE=jdang307;374306]Interesting, there are like 5-7 videos of guys all saying they prefer camber, and take tiny little subtle digs at beginners on rockers (then saying, 'but that's ok')
IMO yes, more turns is better with less vert in pow. Some of us live in shitty areas with glorified hills.
But I have a question for you regarding speed, since it seems you may have conceded that "MOST" not all rockered snowboards are slow down the line. If you have three decks identical in every way (size, shape, sidecut, setback) with three identical riders, one was cambered, one was rockered, one was rocker/camber (like NS)... which deck would be fastest down the line in your estimation?
I will preface that sidecut and length is "better" gauge of speed and how fast down the line one will go.
In deep pow, cambered even if you compared 2 different level riders, seen it happen many a time.
In mixed conditions, it does not matter, all rider.
always, 90% rider, 10% board. In really deep pow, the board makes a huge deal. Camber always will win, all things being equal.
