I'll definitely look to send an email over regarding my thoughts on the board.

First thing though, keep in mind I am a beginner and I don't think there is anything wrong with the board. I ride on the east cost normally on ice and/or groomed slush. All past riding experiences have been on a cambered board.

After getting on the rocker and getting a feel for it, I road a friends Forum Kitchensink (camber profile). I really enjoyed the more grounded feeling I received and the extra force it required to swing it into a carve.

I'm a heavier rider and I don't mind throwing my weight around to initate a turn with a more stable feel. On the rocker, I felt like the contact point was more between my feet than outside my feet which I'm not sure I care for.

If I rode this board in powder, I suspect I'd have a very different opinion.

Ultimately, I guess I feel like I have more control with the camber than rocker when considering the conditions I most often ride.
