All photos same board. First angles were nose and last few were tail, except for second from last (looking from tail to nose) and last (looking from nose to tail)

They seem to show camber extending well past the inserts. Is that correct?

Correct. The board is slightly off the ground extending past both inserts. Thanks for the help by the way!

That is what I had seen as well. There are some descriptions online (I am unsure if they originated with the manufacturer) that stated that this deck had camber between the inserts. That is written about other boards as well. In actuality when we have looked at those boards, they all had camber extending well past the inserts (almost to the contact points). These decks perform very much like conventional camber boards with a bit of the benefit of lifted contact points (makes them less catchy).

An interesting side note to all of this is that the actuality of profiles are often not what is expected.

Fantastic

Once again, thanks for your help. Last question: would you expect it to take me a little while to get used to "loading" this board into turns as opposed to my EC2? Is the technique for turns a little different?

Cmaber certainly has its own feel. The boards tend to be among the most energetic out there (but other factors play into that as well). What size did you get in this model? What is your weight and your foot size? I ask because matching stiffness in cambered boards is even more critical than in other profiles.

I weigh 175-180 and my foot is a 10.5. I bought a 159.

I found my goat, Ec2, to turn different then my cambered ET. You have to kind of push the contact points into the ground by loading the board and then you rail it. I also noticed that camber needs more power from legs. Anyways, sick board choice.

Yeah. I found I liked the board the most on a curvy blue run where I was balls out (65km/h) and carving as opposed to wide open fields where I was flatlining and throwing in the occasional speed check.
