Camber Type

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.
