About the boards
Every board has its own flex characteristics, these flex characteristics partly determine if a board is comfortable and forgiving, or, stiff and unforgiving. The more flex, the more obstacle-oriented, the less flex, the more invert-oriented. The rocker of a board determines the speed (less rocker), and the pop (more rocker). Apart from that, a board with more rocker will also be easier to turn and will be more playful then a board with less rocker. The bottom shape of a board plays a key role in determining if a
board has masses of grip, if the board performs well on obstacles, or if the board will be easy to control during high speeds landings. Channels in the tips or base of the board will increase the performance of the board by increasing the grip and pop. The rounder an outline is, the easier a board will turn. But a rounder outline also means narrower tips, which decreases the stability on landings. A straighter outline will result in a less playfull board, but will also increase the speed, pop and stability while landing.
