TOTALLY agree. Too much time is spend getting the perfect "powder board" but I rode reverse camber out west in deep pow in january, and many of my buddies used their regular camber boards with barely a setback and they were side by side with me the whole time (I rode a larger -161- Arbor Coda reverse camber- my other boards are 157-158). 5 full days of straight riding and we were all equally tired by the end of the trip.

Thanks I've been saying this for years!

99% of the "big mountain" boards are fairly stiff, cambered boards. Might be tougher on your legs but I'm not up on the hill to take it easy.

You're right, I haven't ridden reg camber in so long I forgot you just have to make sure you have a big setback, which isn't required as much on the rocker shapes.

DrnknZag I wouldn't try buttering with the TRice HP. Sure it's rockered but it's pretty damn stiff.

Yeah you just have to put more weight on the tail to get the nose to come up. It's obviously not ideal for buttering but I'd rather compromise in that area and have high speed stability when my ass is on the line...
