I agree with that. I think beginners should first learn on a camber so they don't form bad riding habits.

I sort of disagree with the beginners should learn with camber moto. Not saying that they should learn on rocker either. I just think it doesn't matter that much. Bad habits are bad habits and you are not going to get away with them for long regardless of what you are riding. As a rider progresses and gets more skilled at it, they'll have little problem switching from one style to the other. I know it doesn't throw a hitch for me one bit. Plus if it does make a difference, it'll make for some good comedy when they eat shit...

rocker has it's place and I can carve pretty dynamic with my k2 www so.... meh..

camber is better for it.. but that's why you'd use a cambered board for carving...

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

And excuse me, but I don't recall anyone saying that a cambered isn't more poppy than a rocker. The closest thing I said to that is boards like the Proto and DH2 have practically closed the gap. All things equal, of course positive camber has more pop. And furthermore, even with all the carbon rodding and laminate, a camber will have more pop out of turns. But that's not the argument you made. You made a blanket statement that makes it sound like nothing with rocker is poppy.

Three snaps in a Z formation!
So would you agree that more pop translates to a higher ollie?

This is a great thread.

Good point actually.. my rocker k2 www also has much more pop that my burton se7en with camber.. and the se7en has been ridden much much less.

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.
