That morrow board reminds me of TBT. It's crazy to see that most of this tech existed a long time ago. Inca made gullwing camber in the late 90s. Why didn't any of these old school base shapes take hold? I thought that was pretty interesting as well.

I find it really interesting that around tradeshow season last year, every was talking about how reverse camber and its variations were on the way out and camber was going to be back in full force. But this tradeshow season, the talk was reverse camber was here to stay. There are a hand full of pro models that have embraced reverse camber shapes for next year.

I think a company should sellotape a camber board on top of a rocker board so it has camber pop and stability and rocker playfulness and float. It'd have the best of both worlds, like Hannah Montana, only more manly and, er, a snowboard.

This is a great thread... I have been out of the game for a bit but gotten bit by the bug again and looking forward to getting out a bunch more and will be looking to get a new set-up.. my current board is like 6 years old but in good shape. This was very helpful as my preliminary research had me head scratching a bit.

Rocker or Flat with lifted contact points are likely the two easiest profiles in terms of the first few days of riding. BUT, as with all things in design, if you get something, you give something. They are initially easier because the contact points and much of the running surface has been lifted. Those surfaces are less available to the rider as they progress. That is great for some types of riding and less advantageous for others. Please note that most riders get through the part of the learning curve where this is a major issue in a matter of a few days, so they are really better advised to rent during that period and then buy a board based on the type of riding they want to do.
