It totally makes sense that it seems weird, but it's kinda not weird. Flat Kick is an alternative camber that's kind of the opposite of banana.

Like banana is rockered in the middle and then goes flat/reeeeeeal mellow camber outside the bindings. Flat Kick is the oppostite it's flat between the bindings and then rockers up slightly afterward. So while they're both not cambered, a different approach is needed. I have a BTX board and I steer primarily underfoot more but outside the feet when I need some oomph in the turns.
