Nico rides the T7 too I believe. Riding powder is 90% rider, 10% board shape IMO. Setup is key. Rocker just makes it easier.
TOTALLY agree. Too much time is spend getting the perfect "powder board" but I rode reverse camber out west in deep pow in january, and many of my buddies used their regular camber boards with barely a setback and they were side by side with me the whole time (I rode a larger -161- Arbor Coda reverse camber- my other boards are 157-158). 5 full days of straight riding and we were all equally tired by the end of the trip.
