Yes it does. Just look at it on a table or smth. 

It such a obvious feeling in the tail if you are used to riding camber

All float camber boards in the line has slight earlyrise

 

Edit : all float camber boards I have riden. Tf 157 154 and the otto

I kinda wish Korua had a construction layup somewhere between the classic and plus lines. Perhaps if they threw carbon webbing or bamboo into the regular lineup for the little extra bit of pop... I’d be all over that. 

I love the burly, stable feel of the classic lineup, but the pop and performance of the plus decks has been pretty amazing. Currently, it really feels like it’s one or the other. I’ve got both the CR and the CR+, and while they have the exact same shape and specs, they do feel VERY different from one another.

Salomon grip, man's board, sickstick, k2 fastplant and 87 all boards with bamboo and I have really liked the feel of them for side hits jumps rollers butters and freestyle maneuvers in general.

Uberspoon as well even though it was a bit to soft for my liking

Shredder, I think that Easyrider has a 64 pencil+ on sale.  Hit them up on IG and ask if interested.

I just spent the last 7 days hopping around Utah on the Dart 56.  I brought two boards with me but ended up staying on the Dart pretty much the whole time.  Sadly I've only had one powder day on the Dart since I've owned it, but holy shit does this thing come alive in the slightest trace of new snow.  

Outside of a few technical steeps on frozen where it would have been nice to have a tail (hello Pencil), there's not much the Dart doesn't do well, get one.....
