The v-rocker is a design so instead of the original shape of a snowboard, you have a bannana like shape, making it easier for you to get a shorter snowboard for park, but still able to keep your nose above the snow in powder. Im no expert on this, so my advice would be to look it up google. Its a fairly new technology and seems to make an overall better board, but again, im no expert. Its also quite new, so one might want to stick with the perfected style burton has in thier 2010 custom non-vrocker, but thats just an idea. So, look it up, research it, and if it seems like it would suit you for what you want, go for it, if not, stick with the classic.
