Dago91 Rode some pretty amazing powder last year here in Switzerland with my old Burton full camber deck. Here are my thoughts ..

Riding on a hill or steep it was fine..riding in flats killed the back leg because of the pressure to keep the nose up.

Get something with rocker that floats my new ns board has effortless float in any powder situation.

This is it exactly, on a steep pitch you won't notice much difference, in the flats you're back leg is burning and you just don't have the control.

All of my "powder" boards have some form of camber, but the big wide nose, extra length, generous taper, and a healthy setback make the difference. Combine that with a little camber and an early rise/rocker nose, and you've got a fun powder/off-piste board!
