I love the physics behind snow sports, but imo, you mite need to start allowing for the dual camber, rocker/reverse camber products that are now on the market, as an update for the new tech

Reverse Camber Info Coming Soon
by: Spencer @ Snowboard-Coach.com

Hi there and thanks for your input.

Yes I am aware of the significance of the movement towards reverse camber and do intend on including new and updated info on the pros and cons of the different flex patterns and camber designs that have come out over the past 2 seasons.

In my opinion reverse is functional and useful in powder, powder jump landings, pressing boxes or rails, butter tricks and in requiring less skill to initiate turns.

I do see a place for reverse camber, but believe that camber boards are better for carving groomers, carrying speed in the halfpipe and on jumps, recovering from off balance landings and in all around board control demands of the higher level rider.

Right now I am knee deep in training and competition, but when things slow down I will work on the Reverse Camber info for the SNowboard Physics page.

Thanks again for the input--
Have a great day
