Had an interesting discussion today at my LBS regarding hybrid vs camber. It seems all of us were in favor of cambered boards. We all agreed that rocker and hybrid boards have their place (park or pow) but for aggressive hard charging nothing beats camber. The shop owner said most boards will most likely return to camber next year and that this hybrid nonsense is just marketing hype (his words). But I also sort of agree with him. I'm looking for a new freeride board and for the first time in 10+ years it WILL NOT be a Never Summer. We all agreed that the older NS boards were built for experianced and aggressive riders and the newer models are better suited for begginers. Anyways, was checking out the Kessler Ride but damm!$$$$$$
Man, the Internet sounds like a tuff place to ride.
