Very, very happy the Billy Goat is C3.

The beast is cool looking, kind of k2 peacemaker shaped. I was hoping for a tweak to the dirty pillow, longer nose and tail less sidecut.

Whats the info of the ride/performance difference between the billy c2 verses the c3? Thinking/wondering increased camber stability and less chatter bombing groomers and less float in deep poo? Am I wrong...any other info...ideas? Hope to demo one this weekend.

More of a traditional feeling cambered ride with the added contact point of the subtle rocker between the bindings. That is there to help you edge in before the full camber is set.

Thanks, I'll try a c3 billy at LBS but can't imagine its that much different than the c2 billy and already have the cambered decks covered. This 2 past weekends getting really comfortable on the 159 c2 billy...its so much fun and did get it to washout on a 40-45 mph hard carve...so having a c3 to perhaps hold an edge better at that speed...oh well I just ride my cambered decks for that.

Very much liking the Billy Goat!

women's boards?

Does the c3 profile affect turning in any way?

I don't understand why they would reverse the profile? The camber under the feet is supposed to make up for the rocker between the feet.

EDIT--

I love the BG so much I haven't even thought of another board with the exception of a pair of skis! Any excuse to buy a new toy and I'm there!!!!
