I have ridden just about every rocker for this year. Any of Libs or GNU's boards are super fun to ride depending on your riding style and what you are looking to spend. If your into jibs and rails, i would say go for the atifact 1985. It's super soft and the rocker on it works really well.

I personally did not like any of Burtons new V-Rocker or Rocker boards. I just don't think they did it right. Go with either or Mervin Inc's boards or something like a rome. You won't regret it.

I thought the whole point of rocker was to make boards more loose.... HHHAAAAAAHHHHHHAAAAA:l augh:

My fav rockers are NS, Nitro, Ride, K2, and CAPiTA.

It's cool but how do you figure? I think Never Summer's pricing is on par with other common "alternative camber" sintered base boards! 3 year warranty too!

Never Summer Evo-R - $480
Lib Tech Skate Banana - $490
GNU Park Pickle - $490
Burton Fix - $500
K2 Jibpan - $500
Ride DH2 - $500
Ride Machete - $430
