Default Recommendations for Rocker Snowboard

Does anyone ride a Rocker or Reverse-Camber snowboard? I have a few boards but I am looking for something flexible and fun to ride on the bunny hills and green circle trails with my 9 and 7 year old. I introduced my boys to snowboarding 2 years ago, and continued with lessons last year. We have been 5 times this season.

I’m looking for a board to press, and generally goof off with on the beginner trails while my kids develop their skills. I fully understand that in one or two more seasons I will be the one trying to keep up with them.

Any recommendations on a fun, flexible, rocker design board that won’t break the bank? I like the looks and tech of Arbor but I don’t want to drop $500-600 on a play board. I have a couple of camber boards that I enjoy riding normally – just looking to add a fun board to the mix.

Thanks, Jeremy

I'd see if I could rent or borrow before I bought. Small differences you can't see will make a difference, and different people like different boards.

Biggest thing to me is to get boots and bindings you are comfortable in.

Thanks - I've been snowboarding for 25 years. I have boots and bindings that I like. I just haven't bought a board since rocker boards became popular and more widely available. I suppose I could demo a few instead of buying one. Just looking for a few recommendations.

Thanks.

I have a Rome rocker and it's fun on the easy stuff and very forgiving in the park. It folds like a wet nodle on steeps and ice. I also love the k2 cinched bindings.
