Default Board camber issue

So I just got my board the other day and I have yet to use it (still factory sealed). It's a K2 Slayblade and is supposed to be a "flatline" board (no sort of camber - just flat). When I first got it and laid it on the ground, it was flat, but now it seems like it's got a rocker style to it. When I put one foot on the board, the other side is noticeable popping up. Is this a big problem?

So its still in the rapping and you are debating on returning it? How many mm or cm is it sticking up? I would think it isn't an issue but call K2 to feel 100% sure you are ok. When you un rap it let me know how does it ride on the hill?

You wont know if you like it till you ride it. There are so many variations of this rc garbage you might as well stick with one.

Serious? Ofcourse one side will rise when you strap one foot in. Strap both feet in and let us know if it's flat then

I think you're all missing the point...

Anyways, I've resolved the issue.
