Hi, hopefully you guys could give some assistance on a good type of board as I have no idea what to get when it comes to rocker/camber.

I am 6'5", ~180 lbs and a size 13 boot.

I mainly ride groomers with some park and powder mixed in. Looking for a board that can do it all.

I currently ride a Nitro Voltage 163.

Thanks

Rocker Camber Rocker is amazing for that mix.

That will depend entirely on the model that you are considering. Tip to tip cm length is a poor indicator of performance aor intended rider range. Were there any specific models that you were considering? I will be very happy to help you with those.

All are great brands, but none of those produce this design. Thos two brands are the biggest proponents of Camber Rocker Camber profiles. Some of those will be good choices as well.

Hello guys,

I have been riding classic camber boards for the last 20 years.
My main strength is groomers: I know how to handle speed, carve, do quick turns, etc. My weakness: jumps! I catch edges a lot when landing so I am pretty much scarred of doing jumps.

I want to improve my jump skills, and this is where i have discovered that hybrid cambers could help me. But I have also discovered that there were 2 kind of cambers:
- A: camber-rocker-camber, like the Lib Tech Jamie Lynn
- B: rocker-camber-rocker, like the Jones Mountain Twin

I know those 2 boards handle very well speed on groomers, which is of course my MAIN concern, but which one of those 2 will help me improve my jump skills and be the most "catch-free" on landings?

Thanks,
JT
