I was referring to the "camber humps", I should have been more specific. That engaging the camber section is what I love about the NS board. Its like you can ride the NS board different ways according to the riding conditions.

The potential downside to that though is that you have to explicitly move your weight forward on hard turns to engage the camber. I find that on my regular camber board (Ride Havoc) I can get good carve with less committed weight shift. If I get lazy like that with the Heritage I kind of wash out.

Thats crazy. I've actually thought of this type of camber profile. If you ever get any to test let us know how it performs.

Whatya think of them? I can't figure out what advantage such a camber profile might bring to the table, but curious to hear what you think.

As soon as I see guys running races with RCRCRCRCRCRCR profile wet noodles strapped to their feet, I'll give in, and give up my camber board.

Who fucking cares.
The camber fashion trend in snowboarding where everyone needs some kind of different camber to the next guy in the lift line will be like the little wheel trend in skateboarding. Looking back people will laugh at what seems so serious right now.
Just ride.

The whole concept actually makes sense when you think about it. A cambered spring between the bindings that can also act as an extra set of contact points while you drive through a carve. They arrived Thursday and I'm playing catch up on decks right now so I haven't gotten to them but I will probably take one out Tuesday. I have something like 22 decks sitting here right now and I'm about through half with another 30 coming in this week so don't expect to see the published review probably till May first when I roll out this new review series.

Eh these camber profiles have given the stagnation of snowboarding a much needed boost. They aren't going anywhere any time soon and you won't see camber having a 100% resurgence in your life time.

I do think that companies can go a bit over board though and honestly if you just hold a board up and look down the side cut you'll see the true camber profile. I've seen companies that say they have rocker, camber, reverse, camber, rocker blah blah blah you look down it and the damn thing is pretty fucking flat with maybe just a slight camber zone under foot.
