Just been looking at next seasons DC snowboards and caught this video:
At about 1:06 in he mentions a new board with "skate camber"?
He is saying that this is flat-camber-flat. We did see a few boards with that config on display this year, but when we laid them flat they actually had camber in the mid section leading into flat sections and then lifted contact points which made them really more a variety of rocker-camber-rocker. I did not check out these DC boards so they may indeed be true flat-camber-flat. Expanding the flat at the contact points could provide some extra freestyle stability out there for butters, etc, but it would come at the expense of catchy edges (as with dead flat boards). Consider that the reason for lifting the contact points in original rocker was to achieve that looser feel and reduce snagged edges.
