BurtonAvenger Arbor Redesigns The Draft Series | SNOWBOARD MAGAZINE those sites are wrong then. Here's the press release for it and riding it I can tell you it's not flat.

00gab00ga Sorry, I probably should have specified that I would be buying it soon, probably before I see any 2010 boards (doubt too many will fall within my price range). As far as I've seen all the sites advertising the 2009 Draft say it's camberless.

BurtonAvenger The draft isn't 0 camber it's reverse camber. I have a review of it coming up on the 21st.

Finalizing first setup purchase

Basic stuff:
Weight: ~145
Height: 5'6"
Shoe size: 10.5 (rented some size 10 boots of unknown brand in the past, felt like it fit decent enough. Going to hold off on boots until I can try them on)
Style: All mountain, slightly tending towards park. Probably going to get started on some ground tricks and a few jumps, not so much interested in rails.
Age: 20
Budget: ~$200, don't really want to go over $300 (board only)
Location: Big Bear/Mountain High (California)
Experience: All rentals, probably almost 10 days on the snow. Started linking heel/toe turns and exploring (read: falling over at) higher speeds.

I've already decided to get some K2 Formula bindings in large, so I just need to figure out what board I should get. I was thinking about getting Arbor's Draft (153) since it sounded like everything I was looking for, but I've been having trouble finding a decent review that isn't "lol i just bot this board and it rox". If anyone has any input to give or even just on how well zero-camber works, I'd appreciate it.

I was kind of put off by Arbor classifying the Draft as a 'street' (jib I'm guessing) board, so I'm also looking into the Capita Scare/Stairmasters, Indoor Survival, and Rome Agent and Graft. I've read good reviews for all and tending towards the Agent in 152 if the Arbor board doesn't come out well.

Any other board suggestions/personal stories are welcomed.
