The board just felt dead to me. I was expecting it to ride like camber and be aggressive but it rode really close to a flat camber deck instead. I also did not like how soft the nose and tail was. Finally it was slow, which could have been due to me being lazy and not waxing it enough, but I waxed it as much as any other deck I have owned and just always felt like I was lagging around on it compared to my other boards.

The nitro team sounds pretty dope I overlooked that but I will look into it Thanks for the help!

ThunderChunky I would second the Mod. That or the DC Mega. And if you want take the mod in rocker. It really makes it an all around park board instead of the cambered that makes it a little to stiff, catchy, and strictly focused advanced riding.

I love my cambered Mod, but wish I would have gotten the rocker on account of sucking and being to scared to ride the damn thing cause of it's catch.

Or rocker made me lazy....could just be me being subjective.

SnowOwl I rock a Forum Destroyer with traditional camber. Has been by far the most aggressive park board, but also the most unforgiving and demands full commitment. Locks onto rails, snaps and pops with easy, and is actually pretty stable off rollers and booters/kickers

tonicusa My Signal OG has ridiculous pop. And El has a 155 for sale here right now. I ride a 158 OG and love it for jumps and pipe.

Apparently this was in the original post... Oops.

Good jumpy bonus ramping decks: Flow Shifty or Rush, Burton Parkitect or Custom Twin, Nitro Rook, Salomon Assassin, K2 Happy Hour, Slash Happy Place, Yes Greats/Asym or Basic, Lib Hot Knife, Rome Mod Rocker, DC Mega.

Nivek I should add, regarding the Villain, Assassin, Sabotage, and Time Machine. The Assassin and Villain are these new fangled lifted flat cambers. Unloaded they are camber under foot and flat between and outside the feet with the middle being lifted. Once loaded they effectively become flat to rocker with a loaded contact point where the rocker zone starts. The Sabotage is best described by comparing it to Salomon's equalizer sidecut. Just like they followed a sidecut curve with straight lines to make equalizer, they did the same basic thing to make the camber profile on Sabotage. Flat between the feet and outside the feet and camber under foot. But unlike the Villain, when you load the Sabotage the traditional contact points are still the hot spots of pressure. The Time Machine is just your average camber with early rise tips. Basically a camrock with mellowed, late rocker zones.

Why making a flat out camber, which is basicaly is not so agressive camber, but not flat nor rocker, is a combination of worst atributes? Why making a camber board with biger and early rising nose is a bad thing? You think "mans board" is forgiving or not able to carve? Think twice but it is ok in pow, not great, but very OK.

That's all I have to say about whether or not it matters if a pro is riding a board.

Also what you saw at the Olympics was Stale riding the Mod GRAPHIC. No guarantee he was actually riding what you can get in a shop.

Fourthly: A boards core profile, load point, and flex profile are far more important than camber profile. Some RC's are better than some camrocks. Some flats are better than some RC's. Some camrocks are better than some cambers. It's all in the way the board actually bends and reacts to the rider.
