Dude go with what you want, i would bet anything no matter what boards people learned on they scorpioned, i learned on C2 skunk ape and loved it, i enjoyed pushing myself and like a challenge, ohh and lets not forget that reverse camber has been around for a short time in that mainstream and snowboarding survived on cambered boards for years and years. Don't let people talk you out of something you want cos they did or rode something different.
I now own a riders choice and love it, i also have a berzerker which i will test out this weekend!!!! did i also mention that my best mate learned to ride on a riders choice......go with what you want!
my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls
