Hey, I just picked up this board. I guess the guy that helped my pick it out was confused. He told me it would be fine for carving. I am fairly new to the sport and spend most of my time on downhill runs trying to get better at carving, and just better overall. Is this not the correct board for me? Any suggestions?

Though this board will not be ideal for carving, it will slay any rail you come across.
The rocker on this board is designed to allow easier buttering and presses on boxes, which is pretty much the opposite of carving lol =P
If you're a beginner looking to progress I would look at maybe the K2 Slayblade or the Believer, which both repping the "flatline" technology which gives the board ZERO camber, making it a mellow board for any situation be it carving to sending it at the park.

this thing will be pefectly fine for carving. The rocker technology has many more benefits outside of the park as well

wow. maybe you should have supported your local shop instead of buying online. a salesman in your local shop couldve taken the time to help you decide what really wouldve been the right board, instead of just sellling what they have a ton of. plus, you couldve taken it back to them if you found it was not what you wanted. serves youright for shopping online if you dont know what you really want or need. the www is a park board, most park rats cant even carve.
