|m_jel||basic shape and stiffness sure, but maybe they like stiffer nose and tail, or softer torsionally depending on the type of riding|

don't even ask.
anyway, does most of the riding that travis does look like "fun" snowboarding to you? heavily rockered boards or boards with lost of rocker between the bindings just simply are not as stable at really high rates of speed and are harder to land cleanly on, especially on very large jumps with a lot of rotation and torque. when someone says a board is "fun" they usually mean its very easy to ride and do slower speed tricks on. travis is a very powerful rider and despite all the marketing hype regular camber has its place in that type of riding.

|uamaukeeaokaina||really? what do you alter? why does it ride like dick?|

He's speaking the truth. Banana is a fucking gimic and rides like dick so he rides Mervins ripped off version of R.C.Technology because it's superior.
90 % of pro's don't ride public stock. Hell about 25% of my decks aren't public stock they have things altered to them.

|crazyface||i guess hes saying that it isnt stable enough for him to trust, but is really fun to mess around on?|

Travis Rice - Why would he say this?

Eh, I guess reading on he kind of explains it.
