tomracka what about this one

Raven Rasta Carbon Rocker 155cm Wide 2013/2014

The snowboard is new and original packed


Board:


Freestyle
Sidewall/Sandwich
Retail price $449
True Twin Tip shape
Flex: 5
Core - Tip-To-Tail Wood Core
Base - Extruded IS4400
3 stage rocker
X-pattern carbon reinforcement
Level - Beginner to intermediate
Our most advanced board is packed with double carbon stringers under the wood core. It provides plenty of pop and damping. Combined with a wider waist, provides plenty of high speed stability even in the shorter lengths. Rasta is perfectly symmetrical in shape and flex and is designed for park riders who like to take-off and land switch as much as they do regular. If kickers in all shapes and form are what gets you out of bed, then Rasta is what you are looking for.
100% hand made by Nobile in Europe

Riley212 Usually the purpose of camber is to get the contact points, the widest part on the nose a tail, lifted out of the snow, this lets you make mistakes and the board just slides around instead of catching an edge.Also it gives better floatation in powder because it makes the board rid up and over snow better.

Twin / directional twin. A true twin board has the same shape nose and tail and the binding inserts are positioned centered on the board. A directional twin has the same (or close to the same) nose and tail and the binding inserts are centered 1/4" to 1 " to the rear of center on the board or some combination of the above.

A true twin rides regular and switch exactly the same, and is easiest to control when doing that kind of thing. A directional twin has no problem riding switch is just a little less stable and a little different than regular.

Most "all mountain" boards are directional twin, this gives you better float in powder and more stability when charging steep runs and big jumps.
thanks and i go in spring break so not much pow but i like to do steeps and moguls etc as well as jumps and boxes not so much rails though just looking for a good board and whys rocker better than camber

tomracka what does rocker and the twin things mean?
02-23-2014 06:01 PM
Riley212 nope, just get last years models. Size is more important than anything else. just check back here when you find something.

Look for a medium stiffness board with rocker in the description. preferably a true twin or directional twin.
