Just the tip.
Fully rockered skis with next to no camber underfoot are the bee's knees when you're surfing untouched pow, but let's be real: more often than not, you're going to be skiing sections of fresh with a good amount of chop, chunder, and leftovers thrown in between, so you'll be better off with a ski that has some backbone like the Armada Norwalk Ski. Armada's big-mountain board, the Norwalk, sports a generous tip rocker and a wide platform to make short work of deep and soft snow, but has camber underfoot and a traditional tail to give you plenty of turning power, edge hold, and stability when you're punching it down big faces or hammering through day-old chop at lip-flapping speeds.
Armada stiffened the Norwalk's Hybrid Ultralight wood core up with a fiberglass laminate matrix, which provides torsional and fore-aft stability without stacking on the ounces. It's built with AR50 hybrid cap and sidewall construction, which consists of burly, powerful sidewalls underfoot and a lightweight cap in the tip and tail, so the skis have plenty of edging power, but remain nimble with a low swing weight. The sintered Comp Series base and 1.7mm Impact Edges keep you ripping and gripping, too, so you can send all the lines on your huck-it list without worrying if your gear can take it.
