I'm getting rid of the board based on the camber profile... Not from hopping it around on my carpet... the carpet session may not have let me know how the board rides, but it let me know how it flexes, presses, and how it loads.

just so you know...Indoor Survival isn't an ol'fashion camber board, an I rode libs BTX boards prior to the indoor.

I'm here because I want suggestions for other flat/zero camber boards.

but since you're sooo into my style, I'll break it down for you. IT goes like this: %40 jumps/rails, %30 side/hits/presses/pow, %30 diddling your mom in the lodge.

Thanks for the Suggestions Phony, The parabolic looks pretty mellow in comparison to to some other reverse cambers out there. I've been interested in Arbor for a while now.

You are a complete moon unit. You're getting rid of it for the exact reason you bought it?

fuckin get rid of it, if its not your board and you know what you want then look elsewhere. dont jump on the NS bandwagon if you dont like it. i have a NS and i like it because it fits me, granted its my powder board.

lol. Yes.. I'm not happy with the way it presses in the nose and tail, I think that much is obvious from flexing it on my carpet. How could I have known that before buying it online. The flex of the board isn't going to change when I take it to the snow.

Help? I never asked to be convinced into keeping the proto. I didn't diss NS, yet all of your asses are on fire. The only help I asked for was board suggestions with zero camber. Yet I've only had two people reply to my actual question, Everyone else is flaming hot

this is a snowboarding forum yet you all are some of the most hostile people I've seen on a message board lol. The majority of you seem offended that I don't want to Keep this board. fuck my reason for sending it back. When did I ever ask for advice on "why I should keep it." ? I should have known the butthurtedness this thread would create. I didnt realize never summer was the new perfect "union" brand.
