Why do I have flat/rocker boards?

Ok so here's the deal. I would say I'm an intermediate/advanced all mt. rider (blacks and double blacks) and something less than that in the park. After renting shitty soft cheap camber decks, I bought a ride antic last year. On the ice I found it unrideable, and I could barely carve at all on it; I really just hated it. Then I high cascade this summer I got myself back on camber (forum holy moly ii, youngblood doubledog, t rice pro) and rode like I never was able to with rocker. Then I got myself back on a DC PBJ(flat/rocker) for a day to see if it was just the ride antic that I didn't like. It wasn't. I was sliding everywhere and couldn't ride for shit. My question is, is there something mechanically wrong with my riding that doesn't go well with flat/rocker boards, or are they just not meant for carving groomers and are better straight-lining runs?

EDIT: The title should say "Why do I hate" NOT "Why do I have"
