I'm torn on this. I like both, RC for playing around and camber for when my adrenaline fueled devil horns come out. Sure the camber kicks in when it's on edge, they say. Well I don't like riding on my edges, and I don't like carving or turning as it slows you down. I would like to try the unity whale with camber under the feet and rocker in the nose but that board is hard to come by over here.

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

Flat basing blacks. FTW! No that is not a joke, I like to flat base down black runs, the steeper the better. Within reason of course, some slopes are too steep for too long to flat base the whole thing.

Doesn't that get boring? Don't you live in the alps? I thought there was some good terrain there?!? I think EVERY slope I ride is too steep and or long to flatbase and not end up in serious pain.

Nevertheless, camber wins. Thread done.

Sometimes I actually do snowboard and use my edges and turn. But if the freshys are gone and the slopes are icy then I like to play rocket man most of the morning, then head over to the park and do a few boardslides, then call it a day and head over to the watering hole.

Oh there is some awesome terrain here and no it does not get boring as my tolerance increases and I need more speed. I don't do this everyday on every run but when the need for speed arises then yes, flat basing it is.
