Today, boards have many different kinds of camber – an industry word for the concave or convex shape of a board. Camber basically determines how the board flexes when you stand on it. This makes a big difference in how a board reacts to different terrain. Different types of camber produce different amounts of edge contact and pressure on the snow depending on the model/technology, which changes how a board turns, snaps, and feels underfoot. So before you choose, ask yourself what you want form your new board and review this breakdown of camber options.
