    The rocker came out too low on my noserider, it's pretty much a glider noserider. Kind of heaven

    Imo I don't like nose riding glider boards. Well placed turns, connecting sections, and perfect trim do it for me. Everythings good though if you're into it. If you're looking for a glider that nose rides, u should check out the Prince Kuhio by Donald Takayama. I hear they are making it in poly now.

    If you put a drogue chute on your Porsche it will tend to stop straighter, but that and concave on a glider are both bad ideas from my standpoint.

    I ride both of these boards in different lengths & in different conditions. It's been my experience that Gliders glide & nose riders are for riding the nose.
