Default Capita Horrorscope

has anyone ever rode one. I just bought one a few weeks ago and i dont know much about it. I know the revers camber and whapow but i have never riden a board with revers camber. Is it going to be a big transition. The past few years i rode a rome artifact. Will the revers camber effect me on boxes/rails? Do you like the board?

The Horrorscope is flat between the bindings, so you won't feel any different on boxes and rails.

^^^Greatest board eh?

The Horrorscope is a great board without a doubt. For boxes and rails it's going to excel. It's a very fun board, will ride well in powder. I wouldn't want to use it for big air, going at mach speeds, or halfpipe. For jibbing and pow riding it's definitely a fun board.

Its the only reverse camber or non camber board (or whatever you want to categorize it as) that I've gotten to ride and although I didn't ride it all that hard it just felt like a really soft board to me. Didn't have a whole lot of pop at all which was disappointing considering all the hype around this board not to mention the price tag. Kind of felt like a noodle.

Edit: Well after just reading about the board it appears that it was only intended to be a jib board and the guy lied about how much he paid for it because he said it was $500 and the list price online is $350. So it pretty much performed exactly how it was supposed to.

You must be a super pro...the boards lame. The stairmaster has more pop and that's not saying much

Of course you can take jumps with it, you can do anything on just about any board. All boards have their areas where they are better and worse. The Horrorscope is not a big air or pipe specialist. Many other boards will do that 10x better.

Again, it's a fantastic board. One of the better ones I demo'd. Not knocking it at all.

Now you just gotta work on your landings!

At the end there it looks like the softness of the board actually popped you out of an otherwise decent landing onto your back lol...
