The traditional style of camber keeps great edge hold for high speed turning and stability. Camber boards give the most pop.

 

 

V Rocker

The V Rocker has rocker shape in between your feet, which continues outside your feet to the tip and tail, which give a loose playful feeling.

S Rocker

The aim of S Rocker boards is float, and the large on the nose keeps you afloat, while compressed the camber helps lift the nose even more.

 

Flying V

A Springloaded blend of camber and rocker performance, Flying V™ offers the best of both worlds. Rocker overall, including between and outside your feet, enhances playfulness and float through pow. Underneath your feet, subtle camber zones focus edge-control for crisp snap, added pop, and power through turns.
