7/20/2010 3:38:36 PM [Quote=rook]I think everyone should learn on Camber....... r-camber develops bad habits.[/QUOTE]I agreed with rook..I know a Rev-Camber board will be more forgiving in the beginning, but I think it will hurt your learning curve later down the road. [Quote=Bugsbunnydad]Learn on whichever board allows the boarder to have fun. If your force someone to learn on camber and they end up having a really hard time and giving it up after one trip... was it really worth it? And if they prefer a camber to learn on, then thats great too. My gf started on rentals(camber) and while she was progressing, she found it difficult. So I got her a v-spot this year to just let her have more fun and have an easier time. Fun...thats what we snowboard for right? And I completely agree with the topic starter. A softer board (park) is a great start. After teaching a few people, turning is definitely the first big hurdle in learning and a softer board really helps in that. After they get the hang of it, let them decide on what their first "real" purchase should be.... all mountain, another park and camber or r-c, etc.[/Quote]Who's forcing people to learn on camber?? Its whats out there and new riders shouldn't be buying stuff in the first place. I've also taught/given advice to many new riders and most of them follow what I say(nothing forced), but a few stray and buy new decks thinking a softer one would be better. The fact of the matter is all the progression learnt on the rental(camber) boards goes out the window and they are starting over learning sloppy forum. I see it every year park-rats throwing down tricks, but do falling leafs down the rest of the slopes. I say start on camber it might be a little harder and yes some people will turn away from boarding, but lets face it some people just can't hang so let them GO!!

6/23/2010 5:43:11 PM was going to buy another pair of K swiss, but the Lowdown blacks looking sweet.
6/10/2010 5:25:55 PM I think you should go wider but that's up to you.. for park riding I max out my stance on my 156cm.
6/8/2010 10:36:12 AM Quality over everything..just wait cause flows are not for everybody.
6/7/2010 11:43:44 AM WOW...you heard? like all the other Flow threads it all comes down to PREFERENCE!!! I own some FLOW M9-SE's for park and they work just as well when I'm bombing..I love these binding as much as my Forces or Romes.
