I have had this board for over a year now and can honestly say it is the best i've ever owned. I have been riding 50+ days for 20 plus years and owned allot of boards. Everything from Burton, RIDE, Salomon, Nitro, Morrow, Never Sumer, Lib-Tech and more... The thing about the new rocker boards is that it makes you a more efficient rider. I use less energy to ride the same stuff I have been riding with traditional camber.The fact that K2 uses three stage rocker (wakeboards, surfboards) is what separates them from some of the other companies. Three stage means a flat spot under your feet and raised tip and tail which gives you instant grip as soon as you begin your turn and depending how much energy you apply, determines how much edge you use. You also ride more centered when turning which means better balance and more of a traditional boarding movement, like a skate, wake or surf. This is what makes this board super maneuverable at slow speeds and in the trees yet still hold an edge on hard pack and float like a DREAM.There are allot of people saying that rocker is for beginners and I just want to say that is FAAAAAAR from the truth. It does make riding allot easier (EFFICIENT) but why is that a bad thing? If you and your buddies are into working out while you ride then have at it. I personally am trying to get as many pow shoots, tree runs, rock drops, log slides and park runs as I can before the day is done.Turbo Dream is a great board for those who want to ride the mountain as if it were your last day alive.
