    Posted: Jan/07/2012 at 12:20pm
So ive been riding the same Option Supercap Snowboard since i was 15 years old. Its a 155 V-Core, twin tip, made out of wood. It seems like its a pretty light flexible board. Im definitely an all mountain rider. I like to go fast, hit the woods, and carve it up.

Ive been looking at Burton boards I was thinking about getting the Aftermath but im worried  its not at all similar to what ive been riding. Does anyone know of some Burton boards that may be more similar?

Im also not really sure how wood compares to camber?

All help much appreciated

most boards have a wood core, with the exception of several high end burton boards...so i'm sure your option has a wood core, and the aftermath will have a wood core.  i'm guessing the option you have is camber, and the aftermath is as well.  from what i see on the internet, the option supercap is a more beginner oriented, soft flex board, and the aftermath is a mid flex, good for everything on the mountain.  i think that it would be a fine board if you're really into the board.  

if i were to buy a burton board right now, i would probably go with the aftermath, it seems like a solid board

The Aftermath would be a great board that would be quite similar to your option

May I ask why you are only considering Burton? There is nothing wrong with that, one of my boards I own is burton board for POW, but there are so many companies out there doing great work on boards that you may want to consider many options.

I agree. I would first look at all boards that are similar in design to the one that you currently own first, and then start to narrow down your choices by brands that you trust and would want to ride.

the ippy guide lists a few boards depending on your riding style. If you're willing to explore other brands. I would suggest find a place to demo and see for yourself. because all the opinions you find online are subjective to that persons experience. and the only one that really matters is yours.

I fell off of the Stick with what you know bandwagon a few years ago. 
If you've been rolling something, maybe a change is in need??  It's fun to experiment.

But the wood compared to camber line: somewhere you got off track.

Wood: is the substance that makes up the core.  Long time ago, and some really cheapo boards today, will advertise "full wood cores."  It's like advertising seats in your car:  This car has seats! It's because some of the cheapos used foam, plastics, and other materials to fill up their boards.  Like stated above, some high end boards now have non wood (like aluminum honeycomb in the Burton Vapor) or wood-like products (like bamboo).

Profile refers to the actual Shape of the snowboard when viewed from the side.
Camber: is one specific profile that board manufacturers use.

 Very Crudely drawn it looks like this:
