I don't understand why they would reverse the profile? The camber under the feet is supposed to make up for the rocker between the feet.

EDIT--

I love the BG so much I haven't even thought of another board with the exception of a pair of skis! Any excuse to buy a new toy and I'm there!!!!
C3 is camber overall. In Mervin speak, Camber dominant, Rocker Submissive. Camber is the king of energy storage and assists in transitioning from edge to edge and in boosting. The rocker section can help the contact points break free when fully weighted. The downside of camber is that the contact points are down and can get sticky (and trip you up on occasion).
