technique change required switching from camber to banana?
I'm new to the forums but I am trying to convince myself I didn't buy the wrong board. Been riding for over 15 years and always ridden a camber board. Most recently coming off a Forum f-10, had Burton Custom, Custom-X and a few others in the past, but always with camber and directional board. I bought in to the hype and picked up a Libtech dark series this year after a rock hit pulled the edge out of my F-10. I have given it two solid days in the mountains so far and I'm having a hard time liking the new board.
On my old board I could do anything I wanted, hard charging on groomers, double black steeps, tight trees etc. I'm not much of a park person but am not afraid to send it off a big lip or cliff. I don't know if I need to adjust my riding style, stance or what, but the new board is definitely preventing me from going as fast and I'm having trouble keeping an edge when things get really steep. When going fast and really putting the board on edge, it feels like the board is pivoting between my feet instead of following the arc I've laid down. Kind of hard to describe the sensation but the tip feels like it's turning in and the tail is slipping out causing a slight rotation instead of following the arc of the turn.
Any suggestions on what I should try to get this board to perform as well as my old one? I was thinking of trying a wider stance to help put a little more pressure on the tip and tail for better edging, but maybe I just bought the wrong board?
