One thing I do when I'm carving on the Proto: I spring out the edge I'm on. Snowolf would explain this in much greater detail. It's like you're pushing off the edge you are on into the other edge. This also makes you gain speed. It's a technique I learned on cambered boards.
Thanks, I have been on NS R&C since 2009 with my NS SL-R so for me specifically I don't think it was so much due to the R&C but I can see how it'd be new to a rocker-only or camber-only rider. I really think it was the combination of a longer board (155 vs. 157) and the longer effective edge on the ProtoCT due to the blunt tips and new geometry. I really should have clarified in my first post that my comments on the edge hold and turn initiation were not meant as a negative about the board. Quite the opposite in fact. It was just that the first few runs really required that I adapt my riding from the directional twin and effective edge of the NS SL to the true-twin and longer size/edge of the ProtoCT.

Can't wait until this weekend when I'll get two days of riding in to really start pushing the board!

Very interesting! I'm waiting on the footage that Sabato got of me doing my mach session. That's going to be the first time I ever saw myself gunning it. It was on a blue run here so I was doing whatever technique to pick up speed. Going to have to pay attention to exactly what I'm doing.

The feel of camber during a carve session is what makes me hold on to my directional camber deck. I haven't ridden it in a few seaons, but just in case I get that urge

I have two cambered boards left in my quiver - A 2009 Ride Kink and an older NS Premier. I keep the Kink as a loaner for friends and the Premier is mostly for sentimental reasons and that same idea of wanting to enjoy the ride of camber. The reality though is I have not rode either in years and most likely won't, the NS SL and ProtoCT are my primary sticks now.

HTML Code:
[youtube] put the youtube ID here [/youtube]

For example:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=8QPR3vHoDvE

becomes: 

[Youtube]8QPR3vHoDvE[/Youtube]

I couldn't find the vid of you zooming by me. I did end up having the video of that guy catching massive edge on his heelside while we were on the lift though.

Anyways, sadly this vid is the best I have. You're not maching the whole time but you can tell when you're doing it. (11 sec mark)
