DC HR 2019 Review by The Good Ride
The DC HR is a somewhat fat, somewhat short, super tapered (30mm) camber to flat board that has a pretty heavy back foot on the tail/surfy ride to it. It is soft, light and playful for a board of this type and as long as edge hold isn’t important this could be a fun board from everything from carving/slashing around groomers to having a very competent powder board.

Here is a look at the camber profile from the bench. You can see there wasn’t much flat near the nose and not much early rise but there seems to be a decent set back on board, massive taper in the tail and a somewhat long big nose with lots of volume. You could really feel this camber on snow and as long as there was a lot more weight on the back foot it turned really well. It seems like a board you don’t have to put away after the powder is gone if you have a very directional surfy style of riding.
