Snowflex question

Hi guys i've been riding on snow flex quite a bit recently i was using a burton dominant until last week i tried my new board on it which is a gnu street series with nitranes. my question is are rocker boards a bad idea for snow flex because i was slipping out evey time i tried to brake this never happened on the dominant. Or is it im just not used to the board i've never used a rocker before this. Any help is appreciated.

My experience on Snowflex is flat base or feathering your edge to a stop. No breaking or carving at all.

getting the feel for a rocker on snowflex sounds like it'd be a pain in the ass to me.

To legit to quit.

thanks BA for your useless comment.

yea baconzoo i agree most times that is the case but on my dominant i could stop really quickly if necessary, just strange how different it is.

well karasene if the one day i tried it for has anything to go by it is quite a pain . But the only thing i really had a hard time with is breaking really fast otherwise everything else is very similar since most of the time you ride flat any way.

You're welcome perhaps one day you will learn how to ride and understand.

it a material used on artificial slopes to simulate snow basicaly. it kind of looks like a brush but they put water on. Quite fun actually
