Yeah, i have heard this mentioned a fair bit with the banana, i think it refers to when the first started making them and the whole reverse camber thing got re-born. The reverse camber floats better in pow, so, you can minimize your size. Case in point, on a traditional camber board I ride a 159...or im snorkling and doing a tomahawk down the mountain.

I ride a 53 Never Summer SL and it floats way better than the 59 does with my weight on it.
