Different rocker types

Postby Larse » Fri Jan 11, 2013 8:18 am

Hey, what's the differents between rocker types?

What's the difference in performance for a continues ex 3cm rocker, a three stage 3cm rocker and finally a 3 cm rocker which is flat in the middle?

Which one will be most suited for lightwind board and wich one for a freestyle board?

if I had the same board with those three rocker types, how would I feel the difference on the water?

I know you can rock it unhooked Larse...

start at 5cm. dont do flat in the middle. cant let you in on my ultimate set up, but focus on a smooth continuous unless you ride in a dedicated flat water, at that point you can play with 3 stage. continuous is the best compromise for the best efficiency with a kite and having a board thats a joy to ride. Flat between the feet was debunked in 05
