Rossignol and Signal also use the Cam/Rock shape you're describing.

I initially was thinking the C-R-C shape would be OK but I notice he has an interest in steeps, trees and bumps and in all those circumstances I'd favor more camber so the R-C-R shape might be a better fit. With that in mind, I really liked the Signal Omni as an all-mountain board. I think the OG would be a step up in terms of big mountain riding, but the Omni would probably be a better fit for a beginner/intermediate rider.
