Rocker (Snowboard Profile)

Rocker — sometimes referred to as reverse camber — loosens the snowboard, giving it a skatey feel. The first thing you will notice is they are much easier and quicker to turn. They are easier to press than cambered boards — good for learning flatground tricks like presses and buttering. Another huge advantage is how well they float in powder.
