oh, man... english aint my native so i understood as he catching edge and crashes down.

If he meant like he got less of a grip that he want to then... tune your board and sharpen your edges (cap oblivious =)). check that you don't have a toedrag and you board is wide enough.

Personally i don't think that camer-rocker or magnetraction makes a lot of sense for experienced riders. Check out snowboard racing: race board are cambered and no mangetraction or something similar =) and racers are first in line for an extra grip.
