Default Flat rocker boards?

What are twin shapes flat rocker boards with a centered stance? I see the ride agenda fits the bill. But are there any other ones? Looking for a beginner board!

Cheers

I am currently riding a Franken from Echelon which is flat in between the bindings and slight rise after the inserts. Fun board and good price point. Not sure if any from this season are still floating around but next years version is gonna be called Orion.

The slightly softer and cheaper version of the Franken is the Attack Plan, but next seasons will be called the Archer.

Echelon Snowboards 12'/13'

Echelon Snowboards 13'/14'



The only other flat cambered board I have ridden is the Nitro Rook, it was a great board and was one of my favorites for awhile. I rode it the first year it came out(09/10?) so I'm not sure if they changed much in it since than but something worth checking out.

I have a K2 Parkstar and love it! 80% flat. 10% rocker on each end. Centered stance. I really couldn't ask for a better board at it's price range $430 (the new ones retail for about $460 now I think). I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an intermediate park/all-mountain board.

Check out any K2 board with jib rocker: Fastplant, WWW, Parkstar. I liked my Parkstar (so easy to press and butter) but I hated K2 Hybridtaper cap construction.

Smokin MIP is flat and rockered.

Out of the ones mentioned I'd go with the Rook as I rode the T1 and thought it was a good stick.

Rome Mod Rocker. Although not quite a beginner board, it's flat between the bindings with rocker tips and a true twin centered stance. It's a nice hybrid of an aggressive camber and soft rocker. I like flat base better than rocker boards because they're sooooo much more stable than a real banana board
