Default First park board with rocker

Looking for a new park snowboard. I have always rode traditional camber boards but recently made the change to a flat base and found it OK but nothing great so looking for a change again.
I have done research so I understand the types of rockers that are avalible, I think I am looking to get a complete rocker board like the Forum youngblood 'chillidog'


Just wondering if anybody has first hand experience on these types of boards in the park that could help me make my decision?

Havent looked much into Arbor boards before but the draft looks like a good board. Maybe too soft for bigger kickers?

If you want something a tad stiffer look at the Westmark. Mine should be arriving here any day now.

I have a 2011 capita horrorscope and i love it. If you want a soft board that can help you learn jibs and be very forgiving and also let you hit jumps that arent 50ft+ than i would suggest a horrorscope or a rome artifact rocker

As far as i know Forum and Arbor are the only two doing full reverse camber. Arbors are better. Westmark if you don't want to just jib and butter (Draft). Also Griptech will keep the board under you in ice.

Up for 3 stage at all?

The Arbor boards look pretty sweet and from the response im guessing they ride well too!
3 stage rocker? Similar to the double dog that forum offer?

No that's what we call RC. 3 stage is like CAPiTA FK, Ride Lowrize, Signal Park Rocker/Light...

If so then the Rocker light is super nice and awesome and fun.
