Magnetraction helps on hardpack and for holding more speed with confidence on a rockered board. From a very differnt approach, triple base loosens up the cambered feel for a nice middle ground.
Ya I def see what your saying..And Im leaning towards cambered just because I love eveything about it.I just dont want to make something harder then it has to be..Trust me im NO Terje..I understand what your saying about the design of boards for speed are different then that of ones for park.Also I only ride at a hill with a 900ft incline so its not really big hills im using it on..Dont know if that makes a difference.As far as magnatraction goes I have rode the skate banana,and Im def needing something with less chatter at speeds.I will do some homework on the Lib/GNU stuff..any models suggestions?Thanks in advanced.

Go for a camber board. It will help to learn the feeling of butters.

Look in the 152-156 Range for a solid large jump, and size down around 148-152 if you want a more jib/rail specific board.

CMSbored cant go wrong with an Atomic hatchet. everyone thinks its a beginner board but its much more versatile than led on to be.

Nivek Signal Park Flat, Bataleon Whatever, Arbor Blacklist/Westmark, or a Flow Verve. Some of my top 2012 picks.
