Hey Nivek, how does the Flat OG compare with the regular cambered OG with respect to flex? I'm assuming that the OG boards will still be directional twins, right? Also, have you had a chance to compare the Flat OG to the K2 Flatline directional boards like the Lifelike or the Slayblade?

I currently ride a 153 Slayblade which has been great and am interested in possibly a 155 Flat OG next season. I find the flat-cambered boards the most stable and best handling of any of the alt camber shapes out there currently.

Nivek Out of curiousity I investigated the beveling. Due to the way we finish since its actually fully by hand, you get anywhere from a 1*-3* bevel on most boards. The stiffer it is torsionally the closer to 90* it is. Which works out well actually.

Nivek Everything. Different tip shape, different sidecut, different core profile, different glass. The only things that are the same are the sintered base, sidewall material (though the rocker light is vert walls), edges, core material and that they're both handmade in Huntington beach by someone special.

The Rocker Light is stiffer and maintains its super jibability with the rocker, the Park Flat is softer but the tip doesn't lag when you snap it.




**by lag I mean nothing more than standard rocker pop delay. Skate pop is the term I guess.

Infidelishious So Nivek,

Whats the difference between the Park Flat and Signal Rocker Light?

I guess you guys are right that I don't need to much pipe performance, just jump and jib.
(I got a NS Heritage 2012 at the end of last season, and if I progress far enough
that will kill the pipe and big jumps later in the season)

Anyone have an opinion on the Arbor Draft(for the brass edges on rails)?
BA says they stiffened it up a hair for 2013, but before that its pretty useless on anything except concrete and metal.

romesnowboards Hey Infidelishious

Pretty sick that you're heading out to camp this summer! If you're dead set on grabbing a board before you go out there, a Reverb would be better as an all-around deck and in the pipe, but the Reverb Rocker can definitely still hang on bigger booters as well.

However, you also have the option to take a look at all the demo boards out there. We'll have a good fleet with a bunch of different sizes and models of next year's gear for everyone to ride. That way you can try the boards on the hill and see how you like them before you commit.

If budget is a big factor, take a look at a Garage Rocker or an Artifact.

Any other questions hit us up.

Shred on

Nivek Longevity is great. Its a softer park stick so for serious pipe it won't cut it. But then again if you really want to ride pipe, you'll want a board for that and jumps, and something else for jibs. Pipe boards are stiff both tip to tip and torsionally. Which is the opposite of what you want in a jib deck.

I don't know what Echelon is calling their base structure, but its basically BS tech as was on Omatics since I believe Jason was their designer too. It's baller and works great.

If you're only serious about pipe to the extent that you just want to be able to ride the walls, maybe 2 feet out of an 18ftr at the most, then any decent park deck will do.

You might look into the Rocker Light if you want a bit more performance. Though you add the bit of looseness of rocker, the Rocker Light is a stiffer board and if you like the feel of rocker a more capable board (personally I just prefer the faster tip response of flat, othewise I would be on a Rocker Light). I rode the Light in Keysone's semi janky spring pipe and it did fine there. Its super fun to jib and on like run 1 BA was taking it through Park Lane jumps. So it'll be stable enough for anything you'll be doing for sure. Still completely jibbable though. Really good sweet spot that's easy to get into. For '12 sales this is one of your best bets.
