Nailed it. Thread over. Next topic, I wish NS still made a full camber freeride deck. I may just settle for a Salomon Burner. I have a few friends riding them and I have a few days on one as well and they kind of feel like the old NS cambered boards. Damp, stable, go charge anything, a bit heavy but bombproof, confidence inspiring stability at any speed on any terrain and crushes chunder with a Cadilac like suspension feel.

Man, the Internet sounds like a tuff place to ride.

I too would love to see NS develop new shapes as well as continue to tweak their CRC profile. Perhaps a couple of boards with a camrock profile would be cool...something new.

ride whatever is best for the conditions and terrain.

But on Sunday, rode some great spring corn with the old 2005 cambered....It was sooo muuuch FUN. They had a banked boarder-x track set up and the cambered just tracked like it was on rails, popped through the turns and blasting the banks.

yes! I prefer normal ass traditional camber to any other kind. Provides the most stability solid edge hold and stomped landings on big park features. traditional camber fits my riding style best

I like my capita sierrascope fk, but I miss the fluidity and stability of my old cambered board. I'm split 50/50 on whether I'll go with hybrid rocker/camber or toned down traditional camber on my next board.

Except for Never Summer boards with RC Technology and Vario Power Grip Sidecut!!!

Congratulations to Tristan Clegg! USASA National BoarderX Champion.


I think he's riding a Cobra but not sure.
