I did not check out these DC boards so they may indeed be true flat-camber-flat. Expanding the flat at the contact points could provide some extra freestyle stability out there for butters, etc, but it would come at the expense of catchy edges (as with dead flat boards). Consider that the reason for lifting the contact points in original rocker was to achieve that looser feel and reduce snagged edges.

Thanks for that mate! I found a couple of vids on youtube as well about their new tech which helps too! Liking the sounds of this design, as it sounds like it could help for when I finally start freestyling!

Wiredsport, I've been riding a long time, always camber. I like carving and charging out of turns- do you think someone like me would like a
Mervin C2 board? I've been looking at a Billy Goat.

C2 is incredible tech when paired with Magnetraction. You get insane bite and precision, still have a good bit of the stored energy you enjoyed with full camber and reduce the contact point snags and hard take-downs that you you would just as soon forget. The BG is a top notch Freeride deck. I am very biased, but I have also spent some ear to ear days on the BG and can suggest it to anyone who wants a no holds barred all mountain/freeride stick.

2cm is not going to be a deal breaker. but you are probably better around the 158-160 area. 162 is a bit much, especially for an east coast rider

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

162 is a bit too big like i said. keep it at or under 160. at size 11 you dont need a wide board either just fyi. anything over size 12's is when you need to start being concerned with boot overhang. and even now alot of companies are making bindings with toe lifters on the front of the bindings so you dont have toe drag.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.
