One other option you could look into would be a flat board. Sort of the middle ground for everything. Although it seems like less and less builders are going flat now?!?

I rock a completely flat twin shaped board now. It's great just didn't know if there was a better option for my riding style.

Hi Zack,

Please set your board down on a perfectly flast surface and see if the contact points (wide points) are touching the flat surface. Even boards that are sold as dead flat rarely are. Almost every one is actually some variation of flat rock.

This is what I have. I'm too lazy to grab my board out of my jeep LOL!

Check it out when you have a chance. Dead flat boards are VERY sticky as the contact points are always down. I am unsure if anyone actually makes one anymore.

Re: Rocker, Camber, and everything in between

Is there a reason flat boards are being abandoned by the industry? I like the way they ride and was surprised to see the new 2014 slayblade with a new cambered shape... I have the 2011 slayblade and thought they where onto a good thing there with the all flat shape.

Got it. It would actually need to show the whole deck so we can see what is going on outside of the bindings. Most "flat" decks are flat (or in many cases lightly cambered) between the bindings but, surprisingly, still are lifetd to various degrees at the contact points.

Ah my bad! I'll look at it when I get home. I honestly think it's completely flat besides tip/tail.
