Default Wierd Question About Rocker

I know this is completely irrelevant to riding but I just really wanna know. Is it any different penguin walking(or whatever you wanna call it) on a rocker board. Feel like it would be a little cause of the contact points. Just wondering cause I ordered a Rome Garage Rocker and have been waiting forever for it to come in.

I would say it is slightly different, but barely noticeable. Rocker feels just a little looser. But the difference is so small, it has no real impact.

if you can do it on a cambered board theres nor reason you shouldnt be able to do it on any other rockered/hybrid/alternative cambered board

Yea, I don't think it's widely called that, but that's what I call it. Everyone at my resort looks at my all wide eyed when I ever do it. Seriously so far behind here.

The stiffness of the board has a lot more effect than the shape. Except I guess a very directional board would create some problems.

I had a few minutes of adjustment when I got my rocker board. It was simply getting used to the middle of the board coming up after the end. Mostly during the small quick hops.
