Not sure what the hell is going here, but this is the third time I've tried to leave this thread
Just wondering if someone out there with years of experience can give me an honest review on the S rocker. I currently ride full cambered boards (Malolo and Fish), but have owned several rocker boards, only because in 1985-86 there was no cambered boards available.
As you can see by my board selections, I only ride powder and the occasional groomer only to get me to that next secret stash, but I also do enjoy carving those groomers. So, if you own a Burton board with S rocker and dont mind leaving me an honest review, please do.
It's a set back camber basically. You load it up and get a little bit more rise out of the nose but otherwise think of it as traditional camber with added nose lift to help with float in pow. I dig the concept a lot.
I've ridden a buddy's Barracuda with S-rocker. It's very similar to my 2010 Supermodel but with a looser nose. I can't vouch for whether this makes it float better in powder (assume it would) but it doesn't "lock on" to a carve quite as fast as my Supermodel. Not a big deal and it still carves really well on firm snow, it just feels a little looser than mine. I like S-rocker waaaaaay better than Flying V....S-rocker still has decent grip on ice.
