Big Carvers

Looking for a new board for east coast conditions aka hardpack and ice. I freeride exclusively and ride big boards around 166. I've always riden traditional cambered boards so I'd like something that is atleast cambered under foot.

Some of the boards i've found are:
Arbor A-Frame
Capita BSOD
Salomon Burner
Salomon Man's Board

Any experience with these boards or other suggestions?

If you ride groomers only, just find a big cambered board you like. Most people are selling them used cheap on craigslist. WInterstick makes a great board, the Tom Burt Model. Last years Burotn Supermodel was fun.

You will not like the new rocker options because they are all half baked and still evolving. C2, or Never Summer's version or the Burton FLying V comes damn close to feeling like camber, with less "catch" but less catch means less effective edge, AND that means on the Ice coast, less grip. All the different sidecuts and Magnatraction do not compare to effective edge, don't let anyone fool you.

Check out the Capita NAS, or a Custom X, Arbor Aframe is cambered?

Prior has several big all-mountain boards. Several models can be ordered with rocker or camber. My stick's a cambered 162 MFR and that's nearly the shortest it comes in. Prior Snowboards and Skis 2011

They have alpine sticks too, if you're looking for a hardboot setup.

I vote Arbor A-Frame. I haven't ridden it though, I'm just sold by the marketing and rave reviews. Arbor A Frame Snowboard Review
