Whats the deal with that?
So im very confused. I have been shopping around for a new board to replace my current one.
Right now I ride a 160w Forum Symbol, from who knows when.. probably 09'. Anyways this will be my second full year of snowboarding and I hate my board right now. Its like trying to drive a cambered concrete block down a mountain. Its way to stiff and I think its too big for me as well.
I am 6' tall.
Size 11 boot.
Season weight: 175-190
What I have been looking at is a more playful board, something not so stiff. I ride a lot of powder living here in BC. If there is one thing my current board did for me was give me an unproportionatly strong left leg =\
So what is the deal with Rocker-flat-Rocker. Ride has the Lowrise system, K2 the 'All terrain rocker' and im sure other companys call it whatever they felt like at the time. Would a board like the Ride Machete 157w be a good board for my progression? I want something flexy, but still stiff enough to ride it hard. (I expect at least 15-20 days on the mountain this year). I am an All mountain guy, I want to start hitting natural features and surf powder.
Can anyone offer any advise regarding these Rocker-Flat-Rocker boards? I really cant find much on the net about them, but the general concensus is that they are more all-mountain than the park the manufacturer calls them.
