I'll posit a hypothetical and say that reverse camber and hybrid cambers boards are "more forgiving" and make certain types of riding easier than with traditional camber? What is wrong with that? It would be stupid to purposely handicap yourself, especially if you do a lot of jib-park and urban riding where being technical requires a catch free board. And to what ends? Saying you aren't a noob?

That would be like saying atheletes who train with nutritional supplements or teams who spend lots of money to get marquee franchise players are "noobs". If different technologies, techniques or whatever tool you can think of were really impacting competition to the point of altering the sport in a way the community in large didn't want, a regulating body would impose a sanction against that tool. Anabolic steroids and HGH are illegal in most professional sports (although just about most pro NFL players use them) because the community around these sports sanctioning bodies have drawn a line as to what means competitiors should take to be the best without endangering their health ... one I happen to disagree with. The FIA outlawed ~2009 Traction Control and Stability Control Systems in Formula 1 because the racing had become unexciting. Fans had been bitching about this since the turn of the century.

Has TTR, X-Games, The Olympics, US Open restricted use to only cambered boards? No? Then why the hell should it matter? It's not as though if all the riders on the Dew Tour or TTR were forced to use cambered decks, I could just hop on an Evo or SL and crush the tour. I could easily with a cambered board, too. I KID I KID!

The deck is just a small part of the rider and the rider should use whatever tools he can to make himself better. End of story. I love my Evo. I drive almost 800 miles roundtrip every weekend in the winter from MD to ride Vermont and I need one set-up quiver that is bombproof and versatile so I can get first chair to last chair without worrying about anything else. Anything that gets in the way of me riding can go get fucked. I'll ride another deck than NS R&C when I find one better.

Is there any trick that cannot be done on every camber profile? I don't think so. So, its each to their own as far as camber profiles are concerned. As long as you are stomping shit who cares if you do it strapped onto a decrepit old nun or a baby seal or a hybrid spacedeck.

Did you really just dig up this 2 year old thread to troll it once again?

I'm surprised this thread had 23 pages when that post (on the first page) should have ended it.
