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!$$$$$$

A couple years after the first posts in this thread, I still agree in general. The only "hybrid" shape I like is camber with lifted tips, or early rise in the nose.

Just as an aside, there's more to the board specs than camber that determine how it will rail a turn. Sidecut radius, effective edge, flex profile, and camber profile all play a pretty equal part in that equation.

Everyone I know who's owned a Kessler Ride thinks they're the shit. It does hurt paying a premium for a board, but if it's significantly better than what you can find in the sub-$750 range at what you want it to do, then why not? There are worse things to waste money on...

Like a $6,000 carbon fiber "enduro" MTB?

I agree the price is high considering it doesn't split into two pieces. A friend of mine got an amazing deal on one and he seems to love it. I can't even come close to catching him, forget it. He was keeping up with his girlfriend (who races) on skies, first time that's ever happened. But still, I REALLY, REALLY want that MTB so I have to save where I can. When I asked him if it was better than his Salomon Burner his reply was "not if I had to pay full price". Even though he was faster he said it was a better board but only by a very slight margin.
I think that slight margin was the extra cm in length and a new base WITH wax.

Just buy last years MTB and with the money you'll save you could buy the Kessler outright!?!

I've never understood people that spend more than $1500 on a bike, but they're the same people that don't understand me spending $1300 on a board.

All in all, worse things to spend your money on, in no particular order would be: heroin, hookers, gambling.
