how to mount?

Does anyone know how you can mount a S-rocker on a wall?
I'd like to mount my snowboard on my wall. I mounted my other board (which is a camber) with these Rixon wallmounts. But I'am not sure if you can mount a Vrocker with them as well? Does anyone knows how to mount a S-rocker?

Mr. Polonia the s-rocker is on burtons fish and malolo boards as was stated in the video. both of these boards have a taper to them. The taper at the tail is what sinks it in pow and simultaneously raises the nose causing float and less rear leg strain.

NOw they have the S-rocker which pretty much gives you the same advantage of having a tapered cambered powder board, but at the same time, the R/C combo will also help out on hard pack and groomers.

Oh so if you're on a plain rocker and are going at really high speeds, will your lead foot rise a lot higher? Perhaps making you like "skip" on the snow?

Phenix_Rider S-rocker saves legs
That big nose floats really well in powder. The R/C combination and the flex make it handle moguls better.

What does S-Rocker do?

Has anyone tried this?
YouTube - Burton S-Rocker

It looks to me that it's just a cambered board with a longer nose.
Marketing hype? ...to ride the "rocker" craze? Or does it actually do something to the board significantly?

I don't imagine this feels like a rocker board.

Anyone tries these boards?
