I'm kinda questioning the reverse camber though. Did a little homework and it seems like they're more for parks and it says they're not built for carving really which I'll probably be doing seeing as a bunch of the people will be skiers but I still want to go to the parks a bit. Would you guys still say reverse camber over regular camber?
I'm a go fast all mountain rider that mostly rides with very fast and aggressive skiers. I do a lot of steeps, bumps and trees, don't do parks for the most part at all. Love my GNU Banana (reverse camber board). I also have a regular camber GNU, did not even put bindings on it last year. I also have a 181cm Burton (model name escapes me) that I ride in powder or just when getting groomers (on piste) at speed. Even at 40+mph (I wear a GPS watch to dork around with on hardpack I don't get any chatter on my reverse camber board. You do have to weight you stance it a bit different.
If you can, demo boards and you'll find what you like. You find a board you love in the morning you hate in the afternoon if the snow conditions change a lot.
