So as we head towards the fall I'm thinking of building my own board and the first question I have is rocker.

My Is Yellow, which I enjoy riding, is pretty much flat except for the nose, the other board we have for reference is a 4'9" broadcast which has both tail and nose rocker but seems to be a dog in the water.

I all
ways thought the more rocker the more responsive to front/back weight shifts the board would be, but tougher to spin, but more agile.

So what are the general principles of rocker with respect to:

A) speed
b) agility
C) Spinability ? if thats a word

Thanks!

Ron

more rocker means easier turns less speed..less rocker means more speed,less turn..if your a beginner i would use a fish blank..if your a hot rod,i would use the new 5'8" fish rawson blank or even the tried and true 6'2R

Thanks Dog!

I'm going to cut my own blanks so maybe I'll build a 2 versions, one with a more a
aggressive rocker.
