Why I am done with Rocker and going back to Camber
 
Why did I waste all last season riding it? Pushing my front foot around the mountain, wondering why things feel loose up front, and then wash out from behind.

Don't say, "you need to ride C2, s-rocker, or hybrid camber", they are all the same and I have ridden them all. Banana is fun for boxes. Banana is fun for dorking around, low speed in the park, or just bombing without a care in the world. Hybrid has its place, but when I get "serious" I want camber.

But,

You have more control and more speed for "serious" riding when in pow or hardpack.

Pow is a better experience with camber and a little taper (10-20mm).

And that is why I am done with rocker and went back to camber this season....LOVING IT.

thanks Dave Downing for helping me have more fun on camber.

Different strokes. No profile's going to work best for everyone.

I love my rocker board. :thumbsup: Washing out on my back heal side is a problem I commonly notice when it gets hard packed or icy on the steeps. Doesn't feel "loose" at high speeds though unlike every other review for rocker or reverse camber boards. I don't think I'm ever going back.

i have a rocker and it does have disadvantages/ but more fun than my old cambered. im giving the ns style combo for the next board i get.

The more I ride RC the more I lean toward being dome with camber. For me, the conditions where I prefer camber generally suck anyway. I would say that I prefer RC 90% of the time.
