Hi Mihai,

Volkl's "Easy Camber" is another name for RCR. The camber section ends inwards of the wide points and the camber section itself is very mellow. This is a relatively catch free design in comparison with classic camber.

Let's find out more about your specifics and see if we can find another element that may be snagging you.

Please post up your weight, foot size, and current board size.

Please measure your foot using this method:

Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).

Snow Hound Best or easiest? Many of us who have been riding for a while learnt on straight camber - I'd argue that this would give you the most solid fundamentals and make you a better rider in the long run. It'll also be the hardest and most painful. If you want an easier time of it but still have a board that will allow you to progress past an absolute beginner my vote goes to CRC.

it looks like two boards in one; the split personality

Wiredsport Yeah! There have certainly been a ton of variations added to each of the profiles we had originally described. We should probably add a new top level profile though for back foot / backset camber. It has been around for a while now and is showing up in larger #'s in product lines and on the mountain. This is really a very unique profile rather than a variant and should be considered on its own. Of course there are a lot of subtle (and not so subtle) variants even to this profile. But for fact, if you get a light pow day and an opportunity to demo a backset camber model...it may change your world.

They are WAY WAY too fucking big.

It ain't happening in sloppy boots.

Exactly, I find my boots fit like hockey skates at first (really sore all over, but no specific pressure points). Then they pack out to a comfortable, tight, performance fit pretty quick...

First few days in a proper fitting pair of new boots is not fun.
