Everyone is going to have a reverse camber board for the upcoming season. Neversummer has a very interesting rocker coming out. A double camber if you will. I've rode one of their rocker boards but I didn't get to try the one with the recurve. All acounts are that it exceeds expectations. Either way, the rocker revolution is the flavor of next year without a doubt. Fun for a lot of things without a doubt. I am sure Rome's board will be quality.

I know this boards are good for the park, but I wonder how they perform in the rest of the terrain (Powder, glades and groomers).

How are reverse camber boards for jibbing? I'm looking into a new board for next year, and of course I'm thinking of the Kink again, or a WWW. If the reverse camber is good for jibbing, I may demo one.

anyone know of any articles that talk about the k2 jib rocker, i wanted a www this next year and now that it comes in rocker i'm super stoked

and rocker is really good for snowboarding. its the reason the banana tech did so good this year. the boards are good for jibbing cause its like having presses started for you. and its good for all other riding cause it directs board contact between your feet. it makes noodles like the www and artifact more capable in deep snow since the upturn helps keep you above the snow despite the shorter board (not saying you would want to take a www to alaska, but tree terain at resorts is now possible).

I was super stoked on the BTX this year but wouldn't get one casue i want twin tip, so its super sweet to here that several good companies are making there noodle twin boards with rocker.

I've ridden a lot of the rockered stuff for next year. So many companies are now rushing it because it really is going to change snowboarding, but its rediculous how many are doing a 3 stage rocker thats just the gayness unless you ride it full centered.
