Now I have a follow-up question...

I am looking to get a snowboard for the upcoming season because I have only ridden rentals...the rentals thave I've ridden was a 150. I'm looking at the Stepchild Latchkey and wondering should I go for a 148 or a 153?

Any info would help. Thanks!

Hi Broken,

Thanks again.

As mentioned above, you cannot determine the correct board size based on length. Without knowing the specifics of the rental boards that you used, we will need to start from scratch. What is your weight and foot size?

Hi Broken,

In an effort to keep this thread focused on new technologies and not specific product recs, I sent you an offline message. I hope that is OK. Kindly check your PM.

Thanks!

Great list.
I may have missed it, but how about adding S-shaped camber?
Rocker - Camber and Rocker - Flat

So that I understand, are you asking about a Rocker-Camber-Rocker design that then has an extra flat section on either the tip, tail, or both?

I suppose in theory S-shaped Camber could be categorized as Rocker - Camber - Rocker, but I think there are too many differences, and should have it's own category.
For one it usually has just Rocker - Camber or Rocker - Flat, (with a standard contact point at the tail of the board - not raised). The second difference would be that the highpoint of the traditional camber is usually in the back 1/3 of the board and not in the middle. Also, most often the purpose of this shape is pow riding, as in the Burton Fish or the Rome Notch.

Thanks for the list. This is a much needed piece of info for everyone. I have been keeping one for the last 4 years and it's good to see a good one like this.

Yes, there are many additional twists and variations (and more to come I am sure).

Thanks for the pic!

Which of the new designs stands out the most?

It was difficult to purchase a board with only effective length and flex patterns. I truly cannot decide what I need for next year. Too many damn options and with the market hype it is hard to tell what works. So which of the hybrids carves the best and is made in the US!
-I sold my BSOD Speed tribe"STIFF like morning wood".
-Sold my 167 Arbor Roundhouse! Even stiffer and way too big.
-My old Lib Tech JL Phoenix was too loose and made me nervous. I did have to hit the edges with a file!
-My Rome MOD just does not carve that well but has the best pop without a doubt.
-I rode the NS heritage in powder and loved it. We just do not have powder at my local hill. How is it on ice, groomers and windblown?

Just been looking at next seasons DC snowboards and caught this video:


At about 1:06 in he mentions a new board with "skate camber"?
I just wondered if anyone could explain this version of camber to me?
From his explination I'm under the impression that it's like traditional camber but with the ends remaining in contact with the floor instead of the very tips bending up?
If I'm right, what were the pro's and con's of this system?
