Boxes and bases

This is my second season riding and I've started it off with a new NS Proto. Last year I rode with a 2007 Santa Cruz rev camber- whenever I rode up on a box I rarely could stay straight on the board slide until the end of the box- id get crooked and bail off the side.. Maybe something happened to me over the summer or maybe it's the new board but I feel like I have sooo much more control (and thus confidence) on boxes now. Is it the rev camber/rocker Proto base or just in my head?

Most likely, unless your old board was a noodle. Sounds like you weren't putting enough weight or pressure on the foot that was on the box. That's only really for a tail or nose slide. People get mixed up with slides and boardslides. Basically, wasn't your board unless it was a noodle.

Ya getting used to the body being centered over the feature while pushing, sliding or rotating the body off the feature takes some time to master and get used to.

the proto is really catchy and pulls you off the box if you're not perfectly flat...
great board for hitting jumps in the park, not so great for jibs (not bad, just not great) personally, i think my old rome agent was a much better jib board than the proto

90% of the time that is the case. props for seeing it that way and not just blaming the gear.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.
