    Posted: Feb/06/2012 at 3:43pm
So I've been doing a lot of ground tricks, like the one that Japaneses do.   What kind of board do they use? I think most of them are cambered and super flexy. Can anyone recommend me one? I havent snowboarded long enough to know.

I thought ground tricks would be much easier on a rocker (or reverse camber) board

I've been looking into what those Japanese use..It seems like they mostly use cambered. And im not sure about the flex, I assume super soft. Im currently riding a 151 Reverse Crew right now. I fine it a bit hard to initiate some of the moves.

Any board with a soft flex would be ideal, a cambered board would likely provide better edge hold and pop.

You might find it easier to do some of the tricks on a softer board like the Sierra Stunt.

Without linking the video of the "japaneses" you just sound like a mentally challenged racist.


(Kirk) Most of the theories discussed about how it's done was that they intentionally catch their edges to propel their spins, and it's "more difficult" to catch an edge on a rockered board.
It looked like there were a few flat camber boards in the video. As far as the flex of the board though, know that if you buy a super flexible board you won't be able to land kickers or bomb steep runs very well or at least without being uncomfortable. So it will most likely be a quiver board.

Haha sorry Im asian myself so didnt give it a second thought. I

I successfully didnt a ground 360 but have no idea how I could go beyond that on flat. Usually I rotate the board to about 90 degree then nollie into a 360. I still dont under how to catch an edge. If anyone can explain that would be great. I found this slow motion vid.

I've spoke to the guy featured in this video and he rides a stiff camber like most flat riders in Japan, but he also said it's all about preference.

I pmed him a while back on youtube. He said he uses cambered pipe board. Are pipe board stiffs? I've always thought it would be easier to do these using a softer board.

these ground tricks are ridiculous looking. They look straight out of the air tricks and flips on gymnasium floors.

My friend has a Pickle board. It is insanely flexy and he has no problem doing ground tricks. Look into one.

Yea the problem with Pickle is that is a reverse camber. I have a reverse crew right now. Looking for something a bit diff.

If you can find one, a cambered uninc or x8 would be great options.  So would a stairmaster or stairmaster extreme, or even an indoor survival.

the horroscope is a flat kick camber board.

honestly thats not always the case. Rocker does make it easier to spin flat on the snow but I feel that the level of pop in a camber does make getting up in the air a lot easier to land those bigger spins.

I've ridden mine for 2 days.  It's not a noodle like the Arbor Draft or a Horrorscope.  I think the core is different and there's carbon strips in it to make it stiffer and snappier.  Mine wasn't completely flat.  It had a few mm's of positive camber.
