Thanks for reply... I like my 158 megalight's performance in freeriding but cant imagine of performance 150 Jackpot/Basic compared to CRCs especially in tricks and park.

*Neversummer Evo
*Neversummer Proto
*Rome Reverb
*Rome Factory
*Yes Jackpot
*Gnu Carbon Credit
*Gnu Parkpickle
*Capita Ultrafear
*Bataleon Evil Twin
*DC Ply
*Salomon Riot
*Libtech Banana Magic

There are a lot of fun boards on that list (using many different profile technolgies). The Parkpickle and Carbon Credit are both Flat Rocker Flat with the addition of Magetraction for extra grip. The Evil Twin is a classic camber shape but with the addition of TBT which lifts the edges at the contact points and effectively makes it Rocker Camber Rocker. That is a very fun board which is very well reviewd for the usage you are describing. The Park Pickle (multiple Good Wood winner) is as well. The Flat Nitro Rook (multiple Good Wood winner) is also a strong suggestion. Many of those are very inexpensive right now.

Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge. I would like to ask your opinion about RCR’s performance compared to CRCs in terms of ground tricks(especially tail press, tail press backside, nollie frontside, frontside nosepress, tick tack, butter)…

Happy to help with some generalities. Presses, butters, etc. become amazingly easy and catch free when you lift the contact points (wide points)a bit. For that RCR has the edge biut sacrifices a bit of power and immediacy. CRC redirects the central rocker back down to the snow at the wide points with the addition of the extra cambers. Park/Freestyle boards with that design tend to be a little more powerful and dynamic feeling but sacrifice a little looseness. These are generalities but they hold true in most instances.

Just a lil help to confirm my decision

Hello y'all!!..im new to the site and glad to have found an informative community..i just wanna ask and see if someone can help me finalize my decision....im fairly new to the sport but totally addictive to it...i currently ride a forum seeker size 154cm. I am 5'7 and about 165lbs...i have been browsing, researching and wanting to buy a rockered board...i have been told that if im gonna go rocker, i have to go lesser size. Now i read on another reply here that its not necessarily true...i have narrowed my choices to Gnu carbon credit 150 or 153 cm; Gnu park pickle 150cm; or the Arbor roundhouse rx 155cm...now i really like the Arbor rx 155cm but hesitant coz of someone said that if i go rocker, i have to get it shorter...please help me finalize my decision and maybe suggest other stick that maybe good other than what im looking at....thank you and good day to all!!

I haven't ridden any of the boards you have pointed out but the 2 dif hybrid camber decks that I have owned 155 & 157 I wish I would have gotten bigger ones.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Hi,

Please let us know your foot size as well. Weight and foot size are the two must-have requirements to get yousized up correctly. Rider height is not a factor.

Stoked!

Hi Again,

To clarify, height is not a factor, only weight and foot size. What is your foot size?
